Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
“Imagine” by John Lennon
Music, always the healer, is needed now more than ever.
As venues begin to book ahead with cautious optimism,
I am super excited to let you know about some upcoming shows!
I would love to see you at one (or all!) of these shows
where we can share a smile and song!

Rose Garden Coffeehouse
17 West St.
I am thrilled to be returning to the Rose Garden Coffeehouse stage,
co billing with my friend, the multi talented Matt Marshak
Winner of the 2021 Performing Songwriter Contest - an award I won in 2018! I'll be joined by fiddler Heather Swanson!
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Matt Marshak brings a truly diverse background to the musical table. With a history of 10 albums in the Jazz/Blues genres, Matt’s latest album “Simple Man” finally showcases Matt’s acoustic guitar based singer songwriter material. The album gives the listener a glimpse into the folk, country, and songwriting side of Matt’s music. Influenced early by the sounds of Paul Simon and James Taylor, Matt’s connection with song, imagery, and the story have long been his favorite way to communicate musically.

Spire Center for Performing Arts Song Circle

I get to be both host and artist at the NEW monthly
Spire Center for Performing Arts Song Circle!
The Song Circle Lobby Series is presented in a 70 seat intimate Coffeehouse setting featuring 3 artists In The Round one Thursday each month.
The show is presented both IN PERSON and LIVESTREAM!
Dave Dersham’s songs are “marine” — according to anti-folk artist and occasional improvisatory slam poet, James O’Brien. Murky, cautionary tales of submerging archipelagos, Samoan pigskin heroes, unfolding eco-dystopia, the alliterative whimsy of pedestrian afternoons in rural, uber-academic Western Massachusetts — where Dave grew up and can’t seem to leave permanently, despite the irritating coupling of unreliable snow, mutating ever more quickly into the humidity of summer doldrums, trapped by the Holyoke Range, lingering the flood plains.
Dave completed “The Burn of Summer” (2003) in Somerville, MA, with the engineering assist of Jabe Beyer, Tim Kelly, and Tom Eaton. They, and a generous crew of remarkable talent, somehow got it all together, enabling the album to enjoy regular airtime on Folk Radio’s WUMB (UMASS/Boston) WERS (Emerson College), and a finalist selection for Mountain Stage's Emerging Artist competition.
“Gilding the Lilies” came out in 2011, recorded and accompanied by Lloyd Thayer and Jared Fiske. The 10 tunes were colored with lap steel, electric guitar, percussion, and keyboard. The work was distributed internationally.
Dave Dersham is a sly humorist, cultural critic, and melancholy optimist. A groover of uncanny rhythm, muted chords, and open-hearted tenderness.
A new (overdue) album will come in 2022, despite the insinuations of C-19.
Rupert Wates was born in London and studied at Oxford University. He has been a full time songwriter since the late 1990s, when he signed a publishing contract with Eaton Music Limited. In London he worked with some of the best performers in the city. Moving in 2001 to Paris, Wates formed his own quartet and began playing live regularly. In fall 2006 he came to the US. He is now based in New York City and Colorado. Since coming to the US, he has won more than 40 songwriting and performing awards.
Rupert Wates averages 120 live shows every year, in front of audiences totaling more than 3,500, in acoustic venues in every state in America, in Canada and in Europe. He performs sometimes alone, sometimes with his trio or his quartet. He prefers smaller listening rooms where the audience is up close and the emphasis is on the music. He was voted an Artist Of The Year in both 2013 and 2016 by the international house concert network Concerts In Your Home and for five years running he has been the most booked performer on their database of several hundred artists. In 2018, Wates was a Finalist in the Kerrville New Folk Song Contest, and an Emerging Artist at Falconridge Folk Festival.
