David Potter
 
David Potter is a very talented and versatile musician, singer, actor, and performer. He can play anything from beautiful classical and spanish guitar, to old school rock and roll and country, to blues and folk, to fast-pickin' bluegrass and banjo music. David can do it all! His voice is as versatile as his playing and his acting experience allows him to keep the entertainment quality high for any event. David is also a yoga instructor, and can energetically sense what an audience needs and then deliver that through his music choices. A rare gift among musicians.  David has played for restaurants, weddings, business events, private parties, art shows, farmers markets, dance concerts, and is developing music and chants for yoga kirtans.He has produced many of his own CD's, which you can hear samplings of on this website, that he sells at his events.The spirit and joy of what David loves to do exudes from his music, and the audience can't help but be uplifted by his energy and performance. - Laurie Wood
