Dave Moore performs at Gayville Hall Saturday Iowa City singer-songwriter and instrumentalist Dave Moore performs in concert at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 19, at Gayville Hall in Gayville. John and Susan McNeill open.
Moore plays button accordion, harmonica and guitar and records for Minneapolis-based Red House Records. He has appeared in festivals and clubs coast to coast and has been featured on such national radio shows as A Prairie Home Companion, Live from Mountain Stage, World Cafe, and All Things Considered.
Born in Illinois and raised in Cedar Rapids, IA, Moore spent much of the 1970s living in Mexico, Columbia, and the American south and west. He returned to Iowa in 1980 and began performing and touring with singer-songwriter Greg Brown.
Moore's first album, Jukejoints & Cantinas, was released in 1985, which led to his apprenticeship under San Antonio button accordion master Fred Zimmerle. His performances reflect his love for Mexican-American music, as well as for traditional blues and country.
