David Mallett
with Kyler England Opening

Monday, November 22, 8:00 PM

Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring
$14 advance/$17 door

Raised in a musical family, David Mallett was touring by the age of ten with his older brother Neil, singing at grange halls and county fairs. In his early twenties he started his solo career, writing his own songs and eventually performing them across the U.S., Canada and Europe. His songs have received international acclaim, and one of them, Garden Song, has been translated into several languages and is one of America's most popular folk anthems. Other singers who have recorded Mallett's songs include Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Hal Ketchum, Pete Seeger and even the Muppets. The source of this well-traveled music is life in a small town in rural Maine, where there still is a main street, and you can still find old barns and tall trees. The songs Mallett writes and sings are filled with passion, evocative imagery, and a sense of the inevitable passage of time. The loss of American towns and rural landscapes is the subject of many of his songs, as are the issues of wilderness preservation and the struggle of the common man.

Opening for David is Kyler England, a rising star on the contemporary folk scene. She melds elements of folk, rock, and pop, creating seamless compositions that are mellow and introspective, but with enough edge to hold your attention. Her song If You Want Me To/ won a Gold Prize in the 2004 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest.
