Singer-songwriter David Wilcox to perform at Thunder River Theatre
Award-winning singer-songwriter David Wilcox will perform a sold-out solo acoustic show at 8 p.m. today at the Thunder River Theatre in Carbondale.
With 10 albums to his credit -five of them reaching gold – and another due for release in the spring, Wilcox has been recognized during his 15-year-plus career for his poignant songwriting and live performances.Wilcox’s most recent CD release, a 2005 collaboration with his wife Nance, is titled “Out Beyond Ideas.” The CD offers a collection of mystical poems gathered from a wide range of religious traditions and philosophies, set to music.
Although he enjoys the creative process of making records, the guitarist, lyricist and storyteller said he most enjoys being fully engaged with his audiences during live performances.”When I’m on stage, I realize that the real instrument I’m playing is not the strings and the words and what the songs are,” said Wilcox, an Ohio native, in a press statement. “It’s the emotion of the room and finding ways to draw people in and getting them together – moving from one emotion to another. That’s the real instrument.”
The Thunder River Theatre is Carbondale’s new performance space which celebrated its grand opening Dec. 30. The facility, located at 67 Promenade, 1 block north of Main Street in Carbondale (between Fourth and Sixth streets), serves as the permanent home of the Thunder River Theatre Company.Additional information about the show call 925-7379.
