    THOMASTON — “Get ready for an unforgettable evening of music as Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Dave Gutter takes the stage for a solo concert at Watts Hall,” said Watts Hall Community Arts, in a news release.

    The performance will be Saturday, June 10, at 7 p.m., at Watts Hall, located at 174 Main Street in Thomaston. 

    “Dave Gutter, renowned as one of the most perceptive and enigmatic lyricists of his time, has made a significant impact on the music industry,” said the release. “As the founder, vocalist, and frontman of indie rock groups Rustic Overtones, Paranoid Social Club, and Armies, Gutter's talent extends far beyond his captivating performances. He is also an accomplished singer/songwriter, composer, and producer, having collaborated with legendary artists such as David Bowie, Imogen Heap, and Gramatik, to name a few.

    “With songs that have been licensed by prominent platforms like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO, Gutter's compositions have resonated with audiences both across Maine and worldwide. His song "Letter to the President" is even taught at Harvard as part of a literary class on protest music. Additionally, the history of New Orleans music at Berklee School of Music includes Gutter's iconic Stomping Ground, performed by Aaron Neville and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.”

    In recognition of his outstanding contribution to American roots music, Dave Gutter was honored with a Grammy Award in 2023 for Best American Roots Performance. The winning song, Stompin' Ground, was co-written with Eric Krasno of Soulive and Lettuce and featured on the soundtrack of the documentary Take Me To The River: New Orleans.
