Stan Davis (Evening Show)

June 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Music Evening Show with Stan Davis. $10.00 admission to support the arts!

Stan decided to play the guitar at age twelve, after attending a concert by Pete Seeger. More than fifty years later, his finger-style, slide, and electric lead guitar playing spans the blues, ragtime, jazz, and folk music. Stan also plays bowed psaltery, blues harmonica, autoharp, mountain dulcimer, and trichordo bouzouki.

Stan Davis, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, will present an interactive workshop about the craft of songwriting and about ways to begin and improve as a musician. There will be an opportunity to talk about songs you are writing and to talk about the challenges and joys of being a musician. Teens at all level of skill are welcome.

A life-long storyteller, Stan writes quirky, heart-felt songs about real peoples’ lives across the human lifespan, in the tradition of Jim Croce, David Bromberg, Harry Chapin, Tracy Chapman, Dave Carter, and Arlo Guthrie. Other influences include Delta, Chicago, and Piedmont blues, and the music of Mississippi John Hurt.

Stan has performed for all ages throughout Maine – solo and as the lead guitarist in the duo Hurry Down Sunshine. He has played at One Longfellow Square in Portland, in Maine festivals including Pumpkin fest, the Common Ground Fair, the Alewife Festival, and the Turner and Winthrop gazebo concert series- also at art walks, libraries, benefits, farmers markets, in bars and restaurants, and for programs for homeless adults and in nursing homes. His performances mix storytelling, audience interaction, original songs, and reinterpreted classics.

Stan’s third CD, “All They Know” (2022), recorded in one evening live-on-zoom at Jud Caswell’s Frog Hollow Studio, is a collection of original musical stories about love of all kinds, persistence, gratitude,…and housecleaning.

Stan’s songwriting has spot-on accuracy that touches the heart.” – Lucky Clark, On Music
