New England Celtic Arts will present Juno Winner David Myles in concert at 49 Franklin in Rumford on Wenesday, Aug. 23, and at North Church Concert Series in Farmington,  Thursday, Aug. 24. Doors open at 6 p.m. with show at 7 p.m. David will also be performing at Port City Music Hall in Portland on Monday, Aug.21.
This is Myles’ long-overdue first tour in the Maine.  
Like his trademark suit, Myles’ music is timeless. Regardless of quickly passing trends and fads, it will persevere. From soulful, contemporary pop crooners to delicate, jazzy folk ditties, and down-home, back porch roots tunes to infectious hip-hop ear-worms, Myles’ only artistic constants are his always-growing, shape-shifting songwriting, and his exceptional ability to entertain.
Myles effortlessly injects any song with his irresistible energy, which has led him to numerous collaborations – with a Latin Grammy winner to a world-renowned opera diva to a Canadian hip-hop star. His endearing live charm, coupled with an uplifting sense of humour, has gained him an increasingly large fan base, and afforded him frequent festival appearances.
Hovering somewhere around a magic spot between James Taylor and Justin Timberlake, Myles’ diverse set of musical tools has garnered a staggering number of prestigious nominations and awards and numerous high profile music placements around the globe, from the U.S. hit series “Parenthood,” to Australia’s popular “Packed to the Rafters.”
Myles has earned a reputation as a great showman. His flawless musicianship and unforgettable stories have made him a favorite with fans everywhere.
