UNION CITY — Masterful musician and storyteller Scott Ainslie will sing, play and tell tales at Union City’s Arts Depot of Thursday, April 20, as part of Darke County Center for the Arts Coffeehouse Series.
“Scott brings the sounds and history of America alive with his music,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “He’ll play a variety of instruments and sing traditional songs based in roots music and the blues, as well as share carefully chosen anecdotes; Syou’ll leave his show feeling better than when you arrived,” Mr. Rawlins promised. The concert begins at 7 p.m.
DCCA’s Coffeehouse concerts offer high-quality artists performing in an intimate social atmosphere where food and drink are also available. DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan says that Scott Ainslie is the sort of performer for whom the coffee house concept was intended. “Scott is an innate musician who found his calling and never looked back,” she stated. “He directs his performance to his audience, maintaining a visceral connection with each listener as he pulls material from his vast repertoire with ease to state his musical case while satisfyingly fulfilling expectations; if you enjoy meaningful music that is also highly entertaining, this is a not-too-be-missed show,” Ms. Jordan concluded.
DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series is sponsored by The Andersons, Inc., EB Real Estate, Julie and Tom Graber, Eileen and Steve Litchfield, and Rodney Oda. The Ohio Arts Council helps fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund.
