Dave Fry’s folk album “Troubadour” is a polished and mature collection of Dave’s current repertoire, featuring blues, old-school country, folk rock, and Celtic music, as well as original songwriting and Americana styles. Click to listen and buy your copy.
Dave’s concerts feature both traditional and contemporary folk music, spliced together with guitar, mandolin, banjo, wry and spontaneous commentary on American family life, and plenty of participation on everyone’s part. Dave Fry is unique in his ability to entertain all ages, and he builds a sense of community everywhere he performs.
Fry is so flexible, funny and fluid, it’s easy to overlook his tricky craft, the joy of making music.
