C. Daniel Boling w/Anthony Padilla opening
Maple Street Concerts is pleased to present C. Daniel Boling on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 7:30 pm at the historic Maple Street Chapel in Lombard, Illinois.
A 2014 Winner of the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk songwriter contest, Daniel shares experiences from a life well-lived in places as far-ranging as Okinawa, Japan, and Padre Island, Texas. Daniel is a balladeer/songwriter and delights audiences with his well-crafted story songs coast-to-coast in over one hundred shows a year in house concerts, listening rooms, theatres and festivals. For three decades Daniel was a gun-toting Park Ranger and Criminal Investigator in National Parks and Public Lands throughout the west and he started touring fulltime at 50.
Daniel’s songs tell interesting stories about a variety of characters, including himself, played on guitar and banjitar (a banjo/guitar hybrid) with a deft fingerpicking style. His clear tenor draws positive comparisons to John Denver and Pete Seeger, and folks say there’s a lot of Steve Goodman in his delivery and storytelling. Other songwriting awards include 1st Place at Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, Walnut Valley Festival, Santa Fe Bluegrass and Old Time Festival, and Albuquerque Folk Festival. You can’t help but relate to Daniel’s songs!
Anthony Padilla will be opening.
Tickets for this show are $15.
For the convenience of online ticket purchasing a $1.00 handling fee per ticket is added to the price.
