Tulsa Little Theatre
Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word eclectic. Well known as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne and a session player with the likes of Bob Dylan, Ry Cooder, Ben Harper, Emmylou Harris, Warren Zevon, and many others, Lindley has long championed the concept of world music, combining folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. The eye-poppingly clad “Mr. Dave’s” uncanny vocal mimicry and demented sense of humor make his onstage banter a highlight. The historic Tulsa Little Theatre was constructed in 1932 at the intersection of 15th and Delaware in Tulsa, Oklahoma and quickly became a center for performance art in the city. By the 1980s, the theater was in a state of considerable disrepair. In 2004-2005 a massive and beautiful restoration process was undertaken, with great care to preserve it’s historical ambience. Tulsa Roots Music is proud to be presenting a classic artist at this historic Tulsa landmark.
