Sept 12: House Concert – Dana Cooper (Nashville) with Special Guest Rick Malis

Posted on 18 August 2014 (0)


“This veteran song poet is a self-contained road warrior–a man of many tunes and tunings, and a right hand few guitarists will ever know. Sharp eyes in the head on his shoulders, a droll sense of humor and the weathered heart of a person who’s spent a lot of his life on the road alone. His voice speaks to your center with its pure clarity, but then it breaks and soars like a bird that flies into a strong wind. His music is vital, and live you see him channel all his energy into the song. The songs are smart, but they come from his heart.” — Frank Goodman,

Friday, September 12, 2014 7:00pm with special guest Rick Malis. $15 Admission. BYOB. Snacks available. RSVP to the Gallery, 724.452.0539. Open seating.
