DARKE COUNTY — Darke County Center for the Arts will present award-winning singer/guitarist John Latini in concert on Thursday, Feb. 9 at Arcanum Historical Society’s Wayne Trail House; the show, one of DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series presentations, starts at 7 p.m.
According to DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins, Latini is a three-time winner at the Detroit Blues Challenge.
“However, John’s eclectic music is not limited to the blues; he kind of defies classification, except for being really, really good at what he does,” Rawlins stated.
DCCA’s Coffeehouse presentations offer high-quality artists performing in an intimate social atmosphere where food and drink are also available.
“Our Coffeehouse shows provide the opportunity to relax and enjoy close-up and personal interaction with the performer, as well as to visit with old friends and meet new ones,” said Andrea Jordan, DCCA Executive Director. “And John Latini is a perfect fit in this setting, as he is as delightful and entertaining in conversation as he is in performance. His wit and good humor will inspire smiles and lift spirits, as will his clever, literate songs and hard-driving guitar.”
DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series is sponsored by The Andersons, Inc., EB Real Estate, Julie and Tom Graber, Eileen and Steve Litchfield, and Rodney Oda. 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 and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund.
