Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
Warner (www.warnersongs.com) has traveled to all 50 states and beyond. During his journey he released 11 CDs, wrote “Beads on One String” (now in its eighth printing), and performed in concert at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.
Warner is a two-time winner of the McKnight Foundation Artist Award and a three-time finalist for the Kerrville Folkfest Songwriting Awards, co-founded by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary.
In 2020, he released his 11th album, “Pilot Me”, which debuted on the Folk DJ radio charts at No. 8 in August. Warner was among the top 10 artists of the month.
His breakthrough album ‘Seeds’ was named one of the best folk music CDs of 2012, based on radio shows from around the world. Folk DJ also named him one of the top performers in folk music that year. Midnight Special host Rich Warren named “Seeds” as his CD pick of the week on his nationally broadcast show.
Warner is an artist whose ballads are mixed with rhythmic songs. It has audience participation and engaging humorous stories. A warm stage presence and ability to connect with his audience are hallmarks of a Dennis Warner concert.
