Dean Stevens, David Dodson and Friends in Concert at the UUCiA


"For 25 years, Dean Stevens has delighted audiences of all ages throughout the Americas. An exuberant performer of distinctive style and wit, he combines an intricate, self-taught guitar style with a versatile and expressive singing voice. A formidable creator and interpreter of songs in English and Spanish, Dean explores a variety of personal and social topics, paints sketches of people and places, celebrates the Earth, and annoys the narrow minded.
"Born and raised in Costa Rica, Dean is a lifelong student of Latin America. He learned Spanish at an early age, and readily absorbed the musical and topical influences of the region. He travels frequently to Central America, and has become known for his humanitarian efforts on behalf of refugees returning to their homes in El Salvador and Guatemala.
"Dean will be joined by David Dodson and performer friends from Andover and vicinity. Join us for a very special evening of music."
