Singing Oak House Concerts Presents

Songwriters in the Round

Friday, March 8, 2018 at 7:30 PM
* Potluck finger food gathering at 6:45 *

(Note different times)

Singing Oak House Concerts is thrilled to host the second annual “Songwriters in the Round” which features organizer David Roth, Sloan Wainwright, and Harold Payne.  Join us for an intimate in-the-round with David (Orleans, MA), Sloan (Armonk, NY), and Harold (Los Angeles, CA).  Anything can happen as these seasoned (marinated?) nationally touring artists take turns in a one-of-a-kihd musical conversation.

CCSR director David Roth started the annual Cape Cod Songwriting Retreats in 2014 in order to create a safe and supportive environment for people in all walks of life and all levels of experience to reconnect with their creativity.  His own music strikes many chords, hearts, and minds with unique songs, offbeat observations, moving stories, sense of the hilarious, and powerful singing and subject matter. As singer, songwriter, recording artist, keynote speaker, workshop leader, and instructor, David has earned top honors at premier songwriter competitions – Kerrville (TX) and Falcon Ridge (NY) – and taken his music, experience, and expertise to a wide variety of venues in this and other countries full-time for three decades.

David’s songs (“Rising in Love”, “Earth”, “Manuel Garcia”, “May the Light of Love”, “Nine Gold Medals”, “Spacesuits”, “Rocket Science”, “I Stand for Love”, “That Kind of Grace”, and others) have found their way to Carnegie Hall, the United Nations, several Chicken Soup for the Soul books, the Kennedy Center, Peter, Paul, & Mary and Kingston Trio CDs, NASA’s Space Shuttle Atlantis’s, the classic folk song books “Rise Up Singing” and “Rise Again” (sequel), and 15 CDs on the Wind River and Stockfisch (Germany) labels.


David Roth - "I Stand for Love"

Defying standard categorization, singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright, consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles — pop, folk, jazz and blues — held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto, with the end result being a unique and soulful hybrid.  Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music. Sloan’s incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs.

With a solid and impressive discography of 10 original CDs Sloan continues to write, sing and perform live and has won two songwriting awards at the annual EmPower Posi Music Awards.  In addition, Sloan has written numerous musical compositions for theater and dance and teaches at many of the best-known master songwriter series and workshops.

Sloan will be accompanied by Glen Roethel, an accomplished singer and songwriter in his own right.

Although a major part of Harold Payne’s career has involved songwriting, he has maintained a performance schedule over several decades averaging over 200 dates per year. Harold has played just about every imaginable venue… from amphitheaters, festivals & Houses of Blues to corporate events, houses of worship & house concerts. He has opened for the likes of Van Morrison, Kenny Loggins, Heart, Emmy Lou Harris, Air Supply & Hawaiian legend “Iz” (Israel Kamakawiwo`ole). He was also invited by Jimmy Webb & Paul Williams to perform their songs at tribute concerts, and created customs songs for Regis Philbin, Al Pacino & Bob Cavallo. Most recently, Harold has created a one man themed show called ‘Under the Radar Over the Moon.’

At every performance he presents at least one “ON THE SPOT” improv creation, which is truly his musical signature! He often uses his uncanny gift for spontaneity to create recap songs, of talks just presented. Harold’s custom material for various tributes, “team building” and leadership activities help make special events more entertaining and interactive, while still imparting important content. All of Payne’s performances are soulful, heartfelt and humorous.
