GREENVILLE – Darke County Center for the Arts will present folk, pop and jazz musician Jonathan Kingham on Nov. 15 at Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville.
The second presentation of DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series season, the show begins at 7 p.m. “Jonathan’s songs have won international songwriting contests and his singing has been featured in many movies and TV shows,” DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins said. “His dazzling guitar work perfectly complements his passionate yet mellow singing voice, and his thought-provoking lyrics move and delight audiences of all ages.”
DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series offers high-quality professional musicians in a comfortable social setting where food and drink are also available.
“Jonathan Kingham’s quick freestyle wit will be a perfect fit for the casual, intimate Coffeehouse Series which often features frequent interaction between artist and audience,” Rawlins said.
Rodney Oda, Steve and Eileen Litchfield and The Andersons are sponsors of DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series. The Ohio Arts Council helps fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation, Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund and the John R. and Miriam H. Knick Fund of Darke County Foundation. DCCA membership contributions also help support this show.
