(FAIR LAWN, NJ) – “Different Kinds of Love – Different Kinds of Love Songs”, a virtual concert by singer-songwriter David Wilcox and the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club, the county’s premier folk music presenter de Bergen, will take place on Saturday March 20, from 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost $ 20 for general admission, $ 30 for a family ticket, and $ 5 for those going through tough times. Tickets for music supporters range from $ 50 to $ 250. All tickets can be purchased from Hurdy Gurdy’s website.

David Wilcox is the quintessential folk singer and songwriter, whose music is full of heart, humor and hope. His lyrical insight is matched with baritone and virtuoso guitar artistry, bringing joy to audiences and praise from fellow music critics and colleagues. Rolling Stone noted that his “current musical journey is fascinating and more than worth listening to.”

Speaking about his concert on March 20, David said, “I have some unusual love songs that go into depth about how to make a relationship thrive and others that are more akin to studying the cause of the crash. I also have vigorous attraction songs, but I have always preferred ones that have complex characters and a strong female role.

David started playing guitar and writing songs in the 1980s at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina. In 1987 he released his first independent album, “The Nightshift Watchman”. A year later, he won the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Award. More than three decades and 20 albums later, he continues to hone his talents. Her performances include an improvised song “Musical Medicine” for a member of the audience in need. Most recently, he has composed and recorded “custom songs” for fans who want help in commemorating milestones. Her song “We Make the Way by Walking” won the grand prize in the songwriting competition in the United States in 2018 and is included in her latest album, “The View from the Edge”.

Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club has brought the best of folk music to the Northeastern New Jersey area since 1981. Its concerts, co-sponsored by the Borough of Fair Lawn, are held at the Fair Lawn Community Center in Fair Lawn, NJ. The center is closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
