Russell Howard Benefit Concert

Singer-songwriter Russell Howard made a special visit to Dallas during his cross-country tour, performing at Poor David’s Pub on September 5, 2013.


Recognizing the value of music education, a portion of his concert proceeds were donated to Fine Arts Chamber Players’ after-school string program at Peak Preparatory School in Dallas. Nothing short of AMAZING, the audience was entertained with his smooth vocals, great guitar technique, and a wide range of self-penned musical styles.
