Singer songwriter Joshua Davis will be featured at the first concert of the year scheduled at the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek on Wednesday, January 8. Tickets for the 8 PM concert are $25.
. A prolific songwriter, Joshua Davis was already a heavily touring/recording artist both as a single and with his previous band Steppin’ In It, (featured in the White Gull concert series in 2007 and 2010) when he got a call from NBC’s “The Voice” in 2015.
Unfamiliar with the show, he initially rejected the inquiry, but the producers were persistent. After being convinced by his wife and allowed to skip the auditions, Davis signed up for an incredible six months in the national TV spotlight. A Top 3 finalist that season, Davis went on to sing high profile duets with Sheryl Crow and Adam Levine and became the first artist to sing an original on the show.
Davis has shared the stage with a “Who’s Who” of American folk music icons including Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Greg Brown and Abigail Washburn. His most recent full-length album The Way Back Home mixes his rough-n-tumble grit with an undeniable Midwesterner’s charm for a soaring vocal performance backed by his deft acoustic guitar.
An optional pre-concert fixed price dinner will be served at 6 PM. The menu consists of Hunter Style Chicken with parsley buttered potatoes, kale salad with cranberries, pecans and cider vinaigrette, and Door County Apple Cake for dessert.
Tickets and more information on the concerts and the optional dinners can be obtained by calling the White Gull Inn at (920) 868-3517 or accessing the inn’s website, www.whitegullinn.com. If still available, concert tickets can be purchased at the door, although many concerts sell out, so advance ticket purchase and reservations for the pre-concert dinners are recommended.
