An Evening with David Massengill, September 15

Folk singer, songwriter, and storyteller David Massengill will perform September 15, 6-7 p.m., in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room at UNC’s Wilson Special Collections Library.


Massengill will perform his own material and cover additional songs by other folk artists. The Southern Folklife Collection in Wilson Library is the program sponsor. The event is free and open to the public.

Massengill creates “story songs” deeply rooted in folk traditions, while incorporating keen observations of modern American life. He graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in the mid-1970s and moved to New York shortly after for Greenwich Village’s notable folk scene. Massengill’s songs have been covered and recorded by Joan Baez, The Roches, Nanci Griffith, and Dave Van Ronk.
