(FAIR LAWN, NJ) -- “Different Kinds of Love - Different Kinds of Love Songs,” a virtual concert from singer-songwriter David Wilcox and the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club, Bergen County’s premier presenter of folk music, will take place on Saturday, March 20, beginning at 8:30pm. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $30 for a family ticket, and $5 for those experiencing hard times. Music supporter tickets range from $50 to $250. All tickets may be purchased through the Hurdy Gurdy’s web site.
David Wilcox is the quintessential folk singer and songwriter, whose music is full of heart, humor, and hope. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone and virtuosic guitar artistry, bringing joy to audiences and praise from colleagues and music critics alike. Rolling Stone noted that his “ongoing music journey is compelling and richly deserving of a listen.”
Speaking about his March 20 concert, David said: “I’ve got some unusual love songs that go deep into how to make a relationship thrive and others that are more like studying the cause of the crash. I also have lusty attraction songs, but I have always preferred ones that have complex characters and a strong female lead.”
David started playing guitar and writing songs in the 1980s at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina. By 1987, he had released his first independent album, “The Nightshift Watchman.” A year later, he won the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Award. More than three decades and 20 albums later, he continues to hone his talents. His performances include an improvised “Musical Medicine” song for an audience member in need. More recently, he has been composing and recording “Custom Songs” for fans who want help in commemorating milestones. His song, “We Make the Way by Walking” won Grand Prize in the 2018 USA Songwriting contest and is included on his most recent release, “The View from the Edge.”
The Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club has been bringing the best in folk music to the Northeastern New Jersey area since 1981. Its concerts, co-sponsored by the Borough of Fair Lawn, are held at the Fair Lawn Community Center in Fair Lawn, NJ. The center is closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
