""Communication Breakdown""

"...Dave Richardson was leading a packed house in singing sea chanties. While the songs weren't specifically Irish, a roomful of people half-shouting, half-singing about Liverpool girls felt debauched enough for St. Patty's Day. For those that have never heard a sea chanty, they're basically songs that alternate between verse and chorus... making them super easy to learn the words and join in. At one point Richardson even encouraged someone to jump in and make up a verse!" - by Dan Barry, Hartford Advocate

A highly energetic, acoustic, singer-songwriter from North Western Connecticut. Whether he's rocking with one of his sizzling original, "high octane" songs, or intimately baring his soul with the insightfully poetic lyrics to one of his ballads, Dave Richardson delivers!

Dave masterfully draws audiences into his songs ... songs that paint vivid scenes on the walls of their minds, scenes of life and dream alike. His originals, as well as his folk and shanty selections, resonate with an infectious energy and passion that never fails to leave his audiences moved, rollicked, and most of all ... wanting more Dave Richardson! Simply put, Dave Richardson is like a bolt of lightning in a bottle!

In addition to his work here in the USA, Dave's international performances include being a featured performer at the world famous, Cavern Club in Liverpool, England ... a stage where the Beatles so often played.

Put Dave Richardson on YOUR stage and watch the magic happen!
