Bower Community Concert Series
Join us on Saturday, October 21 for David Starr in concert with special guest, Erik Stucky! Doors open at 6:30 PM, concert begins at 7 PM.
With a name like Starr, is it any wonder? The Arkansas native has honed his decades-long career releasing over ten albums, touring internationally, sharing the stage with esteemed artists such as John Oates and John McEuen, and opening for acts like America, John Oates (Hall & Oates), Travis Tritt, Restless Heart, Karla Bonoff, The Steel Wheels, Survivor, and more.
His unique mix of soulful vocals and honest lyrics create a folk/roots sound all his own; garnering him prestigious showcase performances at Folk Alliance International, AmericanaFest, and Southwest Regional Folk Alliance. In 2022, he performed over 50 dates including a two-week run in England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland, where he has come to build and grow recurring audiences year after year. He continues to top the Colorado Music Chart and is frequently one of the most downloaded artists on Airplay Direct. A master guitarist, he is endorsed by Breedlove Guitars and was honored to create his own limited edition signature guitar and featured on the cover of their Spring 2021 magazine.
His latest project Better Me, includes high-energy acoustic-driven songs such as the title track and “Closer To You,” the feisty blues-rock “Poison The Water,” as well as the haunting “Any Chance Of Going Home,” which features classic fingerpicking with Starr’s sharpened storytelling lyrics.
Recorded in Nashville, TN at Addiction Sound Studios, the project was produced by Starr and Mark Prentice, with A-List musicians such as Matt Bubel (drums/percussion), Jimmy Mattingly (fiddle), Dan Dugmore (steel guitar/electric guitar), John Reno Prentice (electric guitar), Irene Kelley (background vocals), Michelle Prentice (background vocals), Mark Prentice (bass/keyboards), and acoustic and electric guitars from Starr.
Starr’s prestige extends beyond the stage as well, having launched Starr’s Guitars in Little Rock, before relocating to Cedaredge, CO in 2001, where it is now a beloved institution. Starr is a founding member of the board for the Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center in Cedaredge, an intimate event space aimed at attracting musicians and visual artists to Colorado’s Western Slope. He also produces the town’s annual Apple Fest, which draws over 15,000 people to the area, securing live music from more than a dozen acts on the Starr’s Guitar Stage over the course of the 3-day festival.
“His music is authentic, his songs are honest; full of emotion and truth. A voice you will never forget.” (John Oates).
