ST. CHARLES - David Roth will bring his music back to the Fine Line Creative Arts Center in St. Charles at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 23, where in 2017, he played to a sold-out audience.

"Poignant to improbable, holistic to hilarious (think James Taylor meets Jon Stewart), David has taken his songs, experience and expertise to a wide variety of venues in this and other countries for the last three decades," a news release stated.

His work has found its way to Carnegie Hall, the United Nations, several "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books, the Kennedy Center, Peter, Paul, & Mary and Kingston Trio CDs, the Kerrville and Falcon Ridge Folk festivals (top honors at both “Emerging Artist” competitions), NASA’s Goddard Space Center (his song “Rocket Science” sailed on the space shuttle Atlantis in 2009), the "Rise Up Singing" and "Rise Again" (sequel) songbooks, and 14 CDs on the Wind River and Germany's Stockfisch labels.  

His unique songs, offbeat observations and moving stories strike a chord in the hearts and minds of audience members, according to the release.

"Join us on Nov. 23 as we welcome a Chicago native back to the Land of Lincoln," Fine Line invites.

All tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be sold at the event.
