March 16th, Featuring Dean Stevens
For twenty five years Dean Stevens has delighted audiences of all ages throughout the Americas. An exuberant performer of distinctive
style and wit, he combines an intricate, self-taught guitar style with a versatile and expressive singing voice. He has established himself as
a formidable creator and interpreter of a wide spectrum of songs in English and Spanish. His own material explores a variety of personal and social topics, paints sketches of people and places, celebrates the Earth, and annoys the narrow minded.
Born and raised in Costa Rica, Dean Stevens is a lifelong student of Latin America. He learned Spanish at an early age, and readily absorbed the musical and topical influences of the region. He travels frequently to Central America, and has become known for his humanitarian efforts on behalf of refugees returning to their homes in El Salvador and Guatemala.
Dean has five highly acclaimed recordings to his credit. His last release, “At Last” (Volcano Records), is a collection of songs in English and Spanish, with guest appearances by Aoife O’Donovan, Eric Kilburn, Billie Novick and many others.
About us: It is our goal to create a wholesome relaxing atmosphere for people to gather, listen and perform music, poetry and the spoken word.

A $5 donation is suggested (students may bring 2 cans of food as their donation, to help support the local St Vincent De Paul pantry).
