10/14/2013 1:41:00 PM Dan Engler takes stage in Living
Room Music Series at CPL Sedona
This week, Wednesday, Oct. 16, The Living Room Music Series at CPL Sedona will feature Cornville singer-songwriter Dan Engler with his program called "Simply Stated and Simply Played." He will perform his original folk music and talk about folk music origins and his own song-writing process. In addition, Engler will share songs from the deepest corners of the Americana-Roots-Folks music treasure chest.
Dan Engler pens his own original story-telling songs that reflect his life experiences over the past 40 years in Arizona. His songs combine wit, wisdom and an uncanny knack for expressing real-life-truths. His straight-forward guitar playing adds a folksy counterpoint to his "down home" lyrics.
An avid student of music and the icons of folk, rock, and blues, Dan's observations are reflected in the crafting of his songs, flavored with metaphor and experience from his 40 years in Arizona and the Southwest. "My music is simply stated and simply played," said Engler. "They are more stories than songs and the hope is they are shared in a way through which the listener can see some aspect of their own life."The Center for Positive Living Sedona (aka CPL Sedona), located in the Village of Oak Creek at 45 Castle Rock Rd., has created a concert series that they call, The Living Room Music Series at CPL Sedona.
CPL Sedona's seating is limited to 40 comfortable chairs, with a stage platform and excellent sound system. These concerts are allowing for an intimate, up close and personal showcase with some of the finest performing artists in Sedona and the Verde Valley every Wednesday from 7-8:15 p.m. Unlike any music venues in Sedona, audience members will have the opportunity to learn about the artists by asking questions of them during their concert.
Next Wednesday, Oct. 23, The Living Room Music Series welcomes Sedona Dynamite Diva, Jeanie Carroll where she'll perform all styles of music from Pop, Jazz, Standards and Show Tunes including songs in French.
Every Wednesday, the doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for tea and coffee with the concerts starting promptly at 7 p.m. Admission is $10 cash only and because seating is limited it is highly recommended to arrive early since tickets are available only at the door the night of the concerts.
