Music scene: Feb. 3-9
On a visit to see his mother last year, David Durham had an epiphany when his mother told him it was time to record his favorite all-time songs in case a time came when it would no longer be possible.
He will perform “Songs of a Lifetime” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Roper Music Ballroom, 135 N. Fifth St.
Tickets are $10 and available at Roper Music and Bray Real Estate, where Durham works.
Proceeds from the show will benefit “The House” for Mesa County Homeless Teens.
Special guests during the live show will be Chris Unfug, Merritt Kinsey and Russ Williams, who play with Durham in King’n Trio, as well as Terry Toner, who plays a “wicked harmonica,” Durham said.
Among the songs Durham plans to play are “Blue Tail Fly,” “Three Wheels On My Wagon,” plus originals “Grand Valley Home” and “You Said It,” a comical homage to The Daily Sentinel’s regular column in which people complain or applaud various things.
“When I read some of those again, I have to chuckle,” Durham said.
The entire evening will be informal and recorded live.
