Woodlands Community Temple Coffeehouse is pleased to present “Songs of the American Spirit” by award-winning Singer-Songwriter and world traveler David S. Goldman and featuring special guests, The Levins. This will be an uplifting evening of Folk, Blues, Popular, and Spiritual songs that exemplify the best of the American spirit.
David’s music is an eclectic mix informed by his Jewish/Sicilian/Albanian heritage and his travels to India, Mexico, Japan, France, Italy, Sicily, England, Spain, Portugal & Turkey. David grew up listening to classical, opera, international and American folk music. DAVIDGOLDMAN.COM
The idea for “Songs Of The American Spirit” arose out the inspiration David felt when reading the inscriptions on the hallowed monuments and memorials in Washington, D.C.–– words about democracy, justice, freedom, independence and equality. His program will take the audience on a journey through various genres of original and traditional American songs—from Folk, Blues and Spirituals to the American Songbook, Country and Italian and Jewish immigrant songs––each representative of different aspects of our country’s historical struggles, triumphs and diversity.
David has opened for Andy Statman at Irvington Town Hall Theatre, Kenny Loggins at Tarrytown Music Hall, for the Rippingtons at the Paramount Center for the Arts in Peekskill and has performed at The Living Room, Pleasantville Music Festival, the Bitter End, and numerous other venues. He has released several albums, and most recently an award-winning single entitled “Going to America.” David says “I wrote this song because I wanted to express a positive spirit in the face of all the challenges that America faces today. We are all going to America, trying to find America. We can only get there together…” David will be joined by Ira Levin and Julia Bordenaro better known to contemporary folk audiences as The Levins.
“Few people on this earth were born to sing, but lucky for us, David Goldman is one of them.” ––Christine Lavin
“David Goldman has a gift for channeling his love of the whole wide world of music into well-crafted songs, and he has the voice to do those songs justice.”––John Platt, WFUV 90.7FM
