David Roth

Saturday, April 11, 8pm

DavidRoth "David and his music will touch you to the very depths of your soul. He’ll make you laugh and cry, inspire you to rise and fly..."
- Jack Canfield, co-author,
Chicken Soup for the Soul

David Roth strikes many chords, hearts, and minds with his unique songs, offbeat observations, moving stories, sense of the hilarious, and powerful singing and subject matter. As singer, songwriter, recording artist, keynote speaker, workshop leader, and instructor, David has earned top honors at premier songwriter competitions Kerrville and Falcon Ridge, and has taken his music, experience, and expertise to a wide variety of venues in this and other countries full-time for more than two decades.

David’s songs have found their way to Carnegie Hall, the United Nations, several Chicken Soup for the Soul books, the Kennedy Center, Peter, Paul, & Mary concerts, NASA’s Goddard Space Center, and other diverse venues. David also teaches singing, songwriting, and performance at workshops across the country.

'I tried to do many of the other things my parents preferred me to do over the years, but I always came back to song, voice, and guitar. As Confucius said "If you choose a job that you love, you'll never work another day in your life."'

We are thrilled to present David in a replacement show for a weather-forced cancellation from last year. We've been trying for this for a long time. And I've promised to make cheescake.

Concert Info

Acoustic Concert Tours is the Dallas area's premier house concert series. Concerts are brought to you by Paul Porter, Tom Noe, and Linda Silas. Since 1992 Tom and Linda have hosted over 250 concerts in the living room of their home outside Wylie, Texas. Directions are below, or you can go see a map.

Concerts are scheduled about once each month, with some breaks in the summer. Most are on Saturday evening at 8pm and a few are on Sunday afternoon at 4pm. We ask each person attending to make a donation of $15, which all goes to the performer. Drinks and snacks are available and there's a donation kitty. You can also bring whatever you like for yourself or to share. Reservations are normally not required but we suggest you arrive about 10-20 minutes before show time for a good seat.

We feature some of acoustic music's greatest singer-songwriters, from all over the US and beyond, in a serious listening room. We often call this "Hard Listening" music, because the lyrics have something to say and are sure to make you think. You will rarely hear it on the radio - it's just too good.


"The Arms of Eden" located at 4030 N. Hwy 78, Wylie, Texas 75098.

That's about 4 miles east of where 544 crosses 78 and about 1.5 miles west of where 205 ends at 78. The driveway turns north off Hwy 78 between Platinum Storage and RD384, which is the road to Lake Lavon. Signs near the driveway on both sides of 78 say "Lavon Lake Dam Headquarters."  Numbers say "4030" on the post by the driveway, and when there's a show happening we put out a sign that says "House Concert."

CONSTRUCTION NOTE: The state is still widening Hwy 78 and has removed our mailbox. The 4030 is still on the left gatepost. Red reflectors beside two of the barrels on the north side of 78 now mark our driveway. Coming east from Wylie they are on your left across from the "Lavon Lake Dam Headquarters" sign on the right. Coming west from Hwy 205, they are on your right, just after you cross the bridge and pass RD384 (the road to the lake, now with no sign.) Turning between the two red reflectors puts you in our driveway.

It's only 100 ft from RD384 to the wall at Advantage Storage and we're halfway between. Do not turn onto RD384. Turn off 78 between the reflectors, through the dip, past the "House Concert" sign and up our driveway.
