The annual SAB gala – “An Epic Evening: Journey Through the Art Museum” – is just one day away, so we talked with the students performing at the gala about how they and their work connect with the theme of “journeys.”
Be sure to come tomorrow night (to hear David Lind ’18, featured below, as well as our other student performers:
David Lind on the Open Road and Wanderlust
I’ll be performing some original acoustic songs that I wrote on my way to Nashville this summer, plus a few classic covers.
The gala theme is “An Epic Evening: Journey through the Art Museum.” How do you draw inspiration from the idea of journeys for in your performance?
I wrote most of these songs while on a recent cross-country road trip. The songs are definitely about the “open road” and all the wanderlust that goes along with it. This project has been more folk-driven than most of my past songs, and I hope the songs will convey the sense of adventure that I experienced while writing them.
