Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase David A. Alberding


With over 20 years of experience entertaining audiences, David Alberding has honed his craft performing at festivals and venues up and down the East and Southern coasts. He delivers his award winning songs with an awesome, compelling baritone and a contemporary folk guitar style that extends from intricate finger styled blues ballads to rocking rhythm-filled acoustic fury. Davidís incredible vocal range, his mastery of the acoustic guitar, and control of the pen, have yielded an artist who wins over the ears and hearts of his audience with every note, chord, and story.
Davidís influences are as varied and eclectic as the landscape of contemporary folk itself. His strong deep voice and formidable guitar skills reflect years of study blended with the influences of masters such as BB King, James Taylor, and Joe Cocker, resulting in a range that combines nimble precision with unbridled power. Davidís songwriting, though unique to itself, gives a nod to the storytelling abilities and poetic imagery of such artists as Harry Chapin and Van Morrison. David writes songs that run the gamut of human emotion: from the sweet taste of newfound love to the mild bitterness of lost-love-lamented, from all-too-familiar stories of family weekend adventures to the sad struggle of a family coping with loss; all delivered with a promise to entertain and inspire.
