For decades, David Greenberger has collected stories from elderly people. Rather than portraying them as repositories of wisdom and memory, Greenberger illuminates their full and present humanity. David's monologues are entwined with live music in a show that is emotionally rich, charming, funny and evocative.
The works all draw from David's conversations with the elderly in nursing homes, senior centers and mealsites. Some reflect memory loss or other aspects of cognitive decline, while others simply mirror the process of two people coming to know one another through conversation and listening. Greenberger is a regular commentator on NPR.
David will be accented and interspersed by the superb trio of Kevin Maul on dobro, Mitch Throop on guitar, and Matthew Loiacono on mandolin and other instruments.
