Calumet Art Center Benefit with Daniel House and Dave Morehouse in Concert

Daniel House is a self-proclaimed “contemporary acoustic man”. He is a past member and president of the Paint Creek Folklore Society who performs a grand variety of mountain, folk and soft rock music. His focus is finger-style guitar and mountain dulcimer and enjoys bringing Baby Boomers some “comfort music” and delivering it in a surprising form.

Dave Morehouse, well-known local multi-instrumentalist will be joining Daniel on stage. Dave’s passion includes, but is not limited to: mandolin, accordion, guitar, fiddle, and concertina. Dave feels that it is important to support the arts and has done so for several years.
