Just some of the praise that’s been heaped on Anthony D’Amato, whose style and songs put him firmly in the tradition of the American singer-songwriter. The fact that he’s been variously compared to Bruce Springsteen, Josh Ritter, Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan to name just a few, illustrates not only how well regarded he is as both performer and writer, but also how his music is very much his own, crafted with a nod to tradition but steadfastly treading its own path.
This solo show is part of an intimate tour which promises to bring D’Amato’s finely crafted songs to the fore.
