Dave Dersham

Dave was born in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and spent his formative years in Western Massachusetts. Although he largely ignored his guitar throughout college, the galaxy of artists, actors, and musicians at Oberlin stirred in him an aesthetic to be realized only over time. Un-musical sojourns would follow: cooking beneath Wyoming’s Grand Tetons; teaching in the Black Hills of South Dakota; Environmental Education in distant pockets of Maine; and therapeutic wilderness treks across southern Idaho. Finally, Dave addressed his muse and settled into the Cambridge folk scene, playing shows at Club Passim, the Can-Tab Lounge, and the Nameless Coffeehouse.  His first CD, “The Burn of Summer,” enjoyed regular airplay on Folk Radio’s WUMB and on numerous college stations.  His second CD, “Gilding the Lilies,” was released in 2011 and was promoted internationally.
