David Rea

Oh Those Times & Tunes



David Rea, X7
Here's some descriptive-type words from David's new C-D release, "X7"... his seventh release.
"... David's live performances show how his style has ripened and been distilled to the essence of his training in classical music, country, folk and blues. Today, his performances run the gamut from Celtic fingerstyle instrumentals and old-time bluegrass, through cowboy ballads, to deep Delta and syncopated Piedmont blues. A master storyteller, David captivates audiences with tales of the French River in Canada, legends of western heroes and villains, and commentaries on current events‹all laced with humor and poignancy, creating an appeal that cuts across ages and musical boundaries."
Yeah... all that and more. He's a dear friend... treat yourself to some good tunes, sage words and hot fret-jockey pickin'.

Here's a knockout history of David Rea and musings about this recording from Heritage Music Review

David Rea has been a integral player in folk, heritage music
and contemporary rip-snortin' string-flashing for more years than Gawhd's known how to play solitaire...

His next to newest release brings another super, fret-jockey meets tune
interpretor evening beyond the stage and onto your 8-track. Marvel as the singing twangoleum offers "Staggerlee", or "Shorty's Ghost"...

This new recording is David reeling off a string of darn hot tunes. Comfortable, open... resting peaceable on your mind, whether a sweet love tune like Evangeline or a raw talent, blow the strings off the D-45. Either way you're feeling right at home...
There'll be more more writ-up stuff on David plus some fun new pictures just in when I get into town. Until then head over Here to see some more about David...

  • If your'e lucky, you might catch David Rea booked with his good friend Sky Walkinstik Man-Alone...

    Follow his name-link to Sky's spot up in there in the ether-air. He's a dear wonder, and a real hoot to boot...

     

     "If you're looking for peaceful music, this is it! Sky Walkinstik-man-alone expresses the calm of a great people confident of it's destiny. In the music of the Native American flute, he's a jack-of-all-trades, and a master of a surprising number, including the construction of his own instruments. He's a great entertainer as well as a virtuoso flautist. Listen and walk tall!"
