New Single Released, April 2021
Folk music tells our stories, and this spring, Dave Rowe has released a single, "A Toast to John Prine" to be played on folk radio stations worldwide as we all remember Prine's loss to Covid-19 a year ago. Dave's song is not just an homage in words but in music that truly honors the legacy of this great man and American icon.
If you hear Dave's song, please let us know what station and in what area of the world you heard it.
Dave's Vaccinated and Playing Shows Again, What Else is New?
It's true! Dave's back on the horse doing limited live performances. Check the schedule for more information. Dave will once again place his live performance schedule "mostly" on hiatus during autumn of 2021. He is moving aboard his boat to enjoy the nomadic life for a while and will be transiting from Maine to Florida during that time. He will do (at least) one live and in person show along the way in Bethesda, MD (or surrounding area) on October 24 for the World Folk Music Association and will be hoping to resume a reasonable touring schedule in 2022. Expect Dave to perform periodic concerts on social media during the times that he's on the boat moving north or south. Watch this space….
"Dave's voice is straight out of movie, or off a 50-year-old record, pure and always on key." -Sam Pfeifle, Portland Phoenix
Captain Dave Rowe? What's this?
If you've been following along for the last year or so, you know that Dave Rowe is not just a folksinger and not just a songwriter—he's the captain of the good ship, Stinkpot!
Dave and his first mate, Stacey, have been cruising America's Great Loop and beyond, making new music and meeting new friends along the way.
The many Adventures of Stinkpot are being preserved in song, story, video, and soon will be finding their way onto stages from Sweden to China and Denmark to Mexico—and that's just in Maine! Dave's also going to return to regular touring (in a car) upon completion of the loop in the spring of 2020.
