Join us for an evening with Dave Fry in the Half Moon Cafe!
Growing up in upstate New York in the 60’s, then graduating from Lehigh University in 1973 with two degrees (BS – Mechanical Engineering, BA – Philosophy), Dave Fry began performing folk music in college with the Graveyard Skiffle Band, specializing in early 20’s folk and jug band music. Dave struck out on his own as children’s performer while playing clubs with his new band, Steppin’ Out!, a Texas-swing and rock ’n’ roll band. Dave eventually formed an alternative folk/rock quartet, Out on a Limb, in the early 90’s. The rest of the decade saw Dave with a progressive bluegrass band, Pavlov’s Dawgs, and a Celtic-rock band, Murphy’s Trousers.
Dave continues to perform family music at festivals, including regular stops at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the New Jersey Folk Festival, Bethlehem’s Musikfest, as well as the Westmoreland Arts and Heritage, Winterhawk and Falcon Ridge festivals. He is one of the very few performers to have performed at every Musikfest in Bethlehem, highlighted by his week-long residency in 1999, performing 7 shows, solo and with his bluegrass, RockRoots, Celtic-rock bands. Dave co-founded Godfrey Daniels in 1976 and remains one of the premier folk music clubs nationally and internationally. He remains an active volunteer.
Show times are 8-10PM, $10 donation. Light refreshments served, please park in the church parking lot.
