From press release
Charlotte’s Web for the Performing Arts presents David Mallett in concert at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 12, at Katie’s Cup, 502 Seventh St., Rockford.
From a small town in northern Maine, with a career spanning four decades, David Mallett’s music has traveled to all corners of the world. His songs have been recorded by more than 150 artists, including Pete Seeger, Alison Krauss, John Denver, Emmylou Harris, and even the Muppets. His “Garden Song” has become an American folk classic. He has performed in town halls and folk clubs across America and Europe in addition to major venues such as Barns of Wolf Trap, Newport Folk Festival, and Prairie Home Companion.
The Bangor Daily News recognized Mallett as one of the 58 most memorable Mainers of the 20th century. The readers of FOLKWAX voted him 2003 Artist of the Year and “Artist in Me” 2003 Album of the Year. He has recorded 14 albums, including The Fable True (2007) based on Thoreau’s last expedition in 1857, a spoken-word CD with accompanying music. “Mallet is a first-rate folk singer and writer. His portraits and townscapes are camera sharp, and his knowledge of his subjects is profound.”–Billboard
The Center for Sight & Hearing and Charlotte’s Web have partnered to host a sign language interpreter to join David on stage and share his music in the beautiful dance of American Sign Language.
