'...blisteringly good... This guy can play! ...a standout among the folk and Americana releases of the past year.' -Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange '...from intimate and beautiful to absurdly funny. One minute you're in awe, and the next you're rollin' on the floor with laughter!' -Cheryl Mansley RiverHouse Concerts Shepherdstown, WV '...spellbound...wanted to hear more and more.' -South Florida Folk Digest '...astonishing...an evening to celebrate.' -Winchester Star, VA With a rich tenor voice and a mastery of the guitar, dobro, mandolin, and dulcimer, David Lafleur has been performing his unique mixture of folk, Appalachian, blues, and bluegrass for over 20 years. LaFleur learned his 'chops' performing among such acts as Danny Gatton, Harvey Reid and the Johnson Mountain Boys. He has opened for Emmy Lou Harris, Tom Rush and the Seldom Scene, and his original music has been featured on TV and radio across the country. His songwriting has placed him among finalists in numerous national songwriting contests. In 2004 alone, he was a finalist in six national songwriting contests and performed for audiences from Minnesota to Florida. In 2005 he performed for over 250 audiences in the mid-Atlantic region. In 2006, he was invited by ASCAP to perform at the Kennedy Center and won first place in the Australian Pacific Songwriting Competition. In 2007 he toured the UK for the first time. Superb musicianship and an artful array of thoughtful and sometimes hilarious songs mixed with dynamic stage presence and dry wit keep LaFleur in high demand at concerts and festivals. He has recently released his third CD 'Shepherd's Pie' and presently lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia with his fearless wonderdog, Paco.
