Dave Keller and his band perform in Lincoln
LINCOLN — Dave Keller is an award-winning, triple-threat: an outstanding singer, an intense guitarist, and a talented songwriter. Fueled by his love of deep Southern soul and blues music, his performances ring out with passion, integrity and an ability to break down the barriers between performer and audience. Keller will perform for the Burnham Music Series in Lincoln on Saturday, Feb. 9.
Ever since guitarist Ronnie Earl chose Dave Keller to sing on his album “Living In The Light,” Keller’s star has been on the rise. In just a few short years, Keller has been nominated for a Blues Music Award for Best Soul/Blues Album, won the International Blues Challenge Best Self-Released CD Award, and been chosen for Downbeat’s Best Recordings of the Year.
Keller released his new CD, “Every Soul’s a Star,” in October of last year on the soul/blues label Catfood Records. Produced by multiple-Grammy-winning legend Jim Gaines, Keller’s vocals and guitar playing shine on ten new originals, plus one very cool tribute to Aretha Franklin.
“Dave is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever been around,” said Catfood label head Bob Trenchard.
Keller, a Massachusetts native, didn’t pick up guitar until he was 16, and didn’t sing in his first band until age 20. He came up to Vermont in 1993, and found fertile ground to grow his audience. Famous for his live-wire shows, Keller can often be found fifty feet out in the crowd, teasing fiery licks from his trusty Stratocaster, singing off-mike as the audience sings along.
Come see The Dave Keller Band at Burnham Hall, 52 River Rd. in Lincoln, on Saturday, Feb. 9. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, teens and kids free. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call (802) 388-6863.
