It was a great pleasure to welcome these two phenomenal acoustic singer-songwriters to our campus for an intimate night of acoustic music. Zachary is from Saskatchewan, Canada, while John resides in Denver. They teamed up for a month-long national tour that had its final night here at DSU.
Zachary and John’s music covers a wide-range of topics, many about traveling and various locations, and some quite serious and deep, such as a song from John about a man suffering from a head injury following a career in football. As a part of the show, my wife Cassie’s “Design II: Color” students created abstract paintings that were shown on the projector screens. DSU professor Wayne Madsen also displayed his artwork around and behind the performers.
The Arts Council helped to finish out the display with our signature hanging bulbs. During the show, the DSU Live and Audio Production students recorded the audio and shot video. They are currently working on editing and should have some videos finished up soon. It was an all-around fantastic evening!
