NEXT SHOW - David LaMotte
David LaMotte is a songwriter and author based in the mountains of North Carolina. He has performed in all fifty states and on five continents, and has been a featured speaker at events in Germany, India, Australia, at the Scottish Parliament, and at the Presbyterian Church (USA) Mission to the United Nations. His most recent album, Still, spent six months in the Top 20 on Folk Radio in 2022, and his new book, You Are Changing the World Whether You Like It Or Not, will be published by Chalice Press in the summer of 2023. He’s also a member of Abraham Jam, a trio of musicians from the three Abrahamic faiths. Richard Rohr of the Center for Action and Contemplation says “David LaMotte is a very good partner in this important work, both for our world and for the human soul.”
The Boston Globe writes that his music “pushes the envelope with challenging lyrics and unusual tunings, but he also pays homage to folk tradition,” while BBC Radio Belfast lauds his “charm, stories, humor, insightful songs, sweet voice, and dazzling guitar ability.”
