David Lister. Singer. Songwriter. Folk Singer. David Lister crafts songs, one at a time, wistful songs about family, relationships, and unanticipated discovery. Songs that bite. Songs that make you laugh. Songs that can be uncomfortable.

A frequent performer at area open mikes for the past two decades, he performs regularly in southwestern New Hampshire and central Massachusetts. In addition, he currently hosts The Meeting House Stage, a monthly open mike in Rindge, New Hampshire that normally takes place on the second Friday of each month. His many musical influences include Guy Clark, Bill Morrissey, Ian Tyson, and Townes Van Zandt. Whether performing his own songs or covering the songs of other songwriters, David puts his own personal stamp on them all.
