Local singer-songwriter comes home

Emily Dale at Canal Street Tavern
August 18

Emily Dale

After spending two years at Ohio University and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Beavercreek native Emily Dale will return to Dayton for a show at Canal Street Tavern August 18.  Her husky contralto and effervescent charm have won over fans from Dayton to Athens, Ohio, from Boston to New York. It takes enough creativity just to write and play music, but to actually manage to self-employ, it takes creativity of a different sort. When she’s not composing her own pop-folk love songs, she’s a jingle-crafter for local Boston businesses. The last time she played Canal Street Tavern was nearly two years ago — Christmas 2009.  This time she has stripped down her sound, only using the ukulele, in order for her voice to pierce through the crowd, providing a more intimate listening experience, though she hasn’t eliminated the possibility of other musicians joining her onstage. The concert will be a showcase of her new material since relocating to Boston.  At 9:30 p.m., opener Danny Voris will take the stage and Emily will follow at 10:15 p.m.. Tickets are $5.  For more information visit www.facebook.com/emilydalemusic.  Oh yeah, Emily Dale is also my sister.
