Fayetteville Public Library - Event Center

David Starr takes the stage to share his Americana sound, with songs from his numerous albums including "Beauty and Ruin" inspired by the final novel of his grandfather, Arkansas author, Fred Starr.

David Starr takes the stage to share his Americana sound and to perform from his extensive catalog of work (including his latest "Touchstones"), but will highlight songs from "Beauty and Ruin", produced and arranged by John Oates. The songs on Beauty and Ruin were inspired by the final novel of David's grandfather, noted Arkansas author Fred Starr. The novel, "Of What Was, Nothing Is Left", showcased Fred Starr's writing style, which mixed his philosophy with natural prose to explore rural Arkansas life. Beauty and Ruin was not intended to simply re-tell the novel's story, but to create songs inspired by the places, characters, and situations in the book that evoke a cinematic experience through oral storytelling.

Music and copies of the book will be available to purchase after the performance.

David Starr:

David Starr possesses “a compelling voice, something truly special, both accessible and passionate” (Elmore), that has been honed releasing ten albums, touring internationally, and opening shows for esteemed artists such as John Oates (Hall & Oates), Karla Bonoff, The Steel Wheels, Survivor and more. Starr’s prestige extends beyond the stage as well, having launched Starr’s Guitars in Little Rock in 1998, then relocating to Cedaredge in 2001. Today, the store is such an institution that Cedaredge proclaimed the musician’s birthday as David Starr Day in 2016. Starr was also instrumental in the 2018 opening of the Grand Mesa Arts Center, an intimate event space brought to fruition through strong community support in Cedaredge, CO. He helped design the space in order to attract musicians and visual artists to Southwestern Colorado. For more information, please visit davidstarrmusic.com.
