A folk artist who moved to Greeley with his wife last year will take his talents to the Active Adult Center next week

David Durham has played guitar for most of his life and entertains audiences, especially at hootenannies – informal gatherings with folk music and dancing. Durham has been performing at hootenannies since his college days, when he performed at Glacier National Park in Montana.

Wednesday, May 22 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Durham will perform songs such as “This is Your Land,” “500 Miles” and “Hey Good Lookin'” for the Springtime Hootenanny at the Greeley Active Adult Center, 1010 6th St. .

“I love getting people to join in and sing along,” Durham wrote in an email. “My goal at the Hootenanny is to take the AAC (Active Adult Center) to the next level with singing!”

Durham and his wife Soni moved to Greeley from Arizona last May to be closer to their family, including their 2-year-old great-granddaughter. Over the past year, Durham has performed at the Greeley Farmers’ Market, various service clubs and children’s programs, including recently a singalong at Aims Community College.

All ages are welcome at the event and Durham invites all families to come and enjoy the music, but more importantly, sing along.

Tickets range from $5 to $10 and can only be purchased at the Active Adult Center. For more information, call (970) 350-9440.
