Soundboard Concert Series: David Berchtold
Join us for a free show Sunday, November 20th featuring David Berchtold in our production brewery space during our Dosvidanya Makers Market!
David Berchtold has been playing the guitar for more than 40 years. He plays a wide range of folk, rock, and blues, but Piedmont Blues style finger-picking is his specialty. Though he makes it look as smooth as spreading warm butter on cinnamon toast, his ten fingers are flying in several directions simultaneously, picking out the rhythm, bass lines, and melody all at the same time. It is magic to behold.
A native of Illinois, Berchtold has studied with Jorma Kaukonen at the infamous Fur Peace Ranch and he teaches Piedmont Fingerpicking at festivals and colleges. With a rich repertoire from the greatest fingerpickers, including Rev. Gary Davis, Doc Watson, Leo Kottke, and Chet Atkins, David also has a solid hour of innovative original tunes, rooted in tradition but proving that this style of playing is very much alive in his hands.
