Davis to perform original songs

GUILFORD — On Sunday, March 26, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Andy Davis will present a program of his original songs written in his traditional and participatory style at Guilford Community Church, 38 Church Drive.

He invites the public to come prepared to both listen and to join in on the choruses. Each song is drawn from local history, American history, personal experience and heartfelt memory. Davis accompanies his songs on accordion and piano and will be joined by his family and friends. The concert will benefit the Guilford Community Church.

Davis taught elementary music in Brattleboro, Dover, and other area towns for more than 30 years. Calling community dances and playing banjo, piano, and accordion has kept him in touch with traditional music and its place in community life.

In retirement, he has focused on songwriting. His songs speak of life in New England, interesting characters, dear friends, philosophical musings, and an occasional political or environmental commentary. Mixed in with his original songs will be some original waltzes, jigs, and reels - all with a story or memory to relate.

Admission is by donation (suggested $10–$20) Masks respected, but not required. Refreshments will be served after the concert.
