David Young is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter from Maine who will be appearing in concert in Ompah on July 19. David has deep roots in the Ompah area and has spent many-a-summer swimming in Palmerston Lake and playing guitar with his grandpa, popular local musician Dave Young. As a boy, David performed in Ompah several times. Over the years, it has been impressive to watch his growth in skill and comfort on stage.
David performs a variety of genres from folk to rock to country and blues. He has played up and down the east coast of Maine and is delighted to be in Ompah again. David is an accomplished guitar player and singer and he has been mentored along the way by his grandpa. David has recorded two folk-rock CDs of mainly original material. In 2016, he released Acousticism, and in 2017, he recorded Midnight Road at Grandpa Dave's recording studio in Ompah. He will have CDs for sale at the concert.
David often performs solo but also has a group called The Rubber Band. However, in Ompah he will be backed up by brother Deven on drums and grandpa Dave on guitar. He will sing many familiar songs along with some of his own material.
David Young will be in concert at the Ompah Community Centre on Thursday, July 19 at 7pm. Admission is $10 with proceeds to the Community Centre. Refreshments will follow the concert.
