Master fiddler, singer and songwriter David Greely will be performing a solo show at the Community Center for the Arts in downtown Urbana. An original member of Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, David toured with this band for many years before embarking on a solo career. Over the years, David has been assembling a repertoire of uncommon Cajun music. He uses old and rare tunes, new companion pieces to old ones, and striking new melodies that meld Cajun roots with fiddle sounds he’s heard in his travels worldwide, and arranges them with novel instrumentation and rich harmonies. David’s solo shows are totally acoustic, intimate and engaging. There will be a suggested donation of $10 at the door.
