Darryl Holter Performs Live at Chevalier’s on July 21

unnamed-2Chevalier’s is pleased to welcome singer-songwriter Darryl Holter, performing live at the store on Tuesday, July 21st, at 7:00pm.

In addition to his role as co-owner of Chevalier’s, Darryl has just released a new studio album, “Radio Songs: Woody Guthrie in Los Angeles, 1937-1939,” via 213 Music.

With three critically acclaimed albums under his belt, he is also a historian and co-author of a forthcoming book (Angel City Press) on Guthrie’s early years in Los Angeles.  “I started working on these songs after I received a research grant from the Woody Guthrie archives,” Darryl explains.  “During his years in Los Angeles, Guthrie wrote dozens of original songs and performed them live on a daily show on KFVD.  The songs tell us a great deal about the issues of the day in the late 1930s.”

“Few musicians are as well-equipped as Holter to offer this look into Guthrie’s Los Angeles years.” – Will Kaufman, Woody Guthrie Annual

Admission for this performance is free, and Darryl suggests you purchase any book to show your support for LA’s oldest independent bookstore. Please RSVP here!
