David Fisher

David Fisher is a resident of San Pancho, and has been a favorite for several years at the Music Festival.  In fact, David is one of the longest playing artists in the Festival, and has witnessed its evolution from the Festival’s grass-roots beginning.  He is a seasoned singer / songwriter who has been crafting his unique rhythmic and lyrical style ever since he picked up a guitar five decades ago.  Though strumming a guitar for more than 50 years, David says he has given up all hope that some day he may learn to play it.  Welcome to David’s world – where idiosyncratic guitar strumming provides a rhythmic canvas for the pictures and stories that he paints with lyric and poetry.

2013 Music Festival - Dave Fisher

2013 Music Festival – Dave Fisher

David is known for his diverse and original songscapes that include tunes such as an Ozark-tinged, country ballad “Jonny Cheep Cottonshot”,  a fantasy-rooted, jazz-inspired love song “My Lady of the Rain“,  an ode to longevity ambushed by a New Orleans funeral “I’ll Carry On”,  a scorched-earth, kamikaze-chorded, war-is-hell commentary “Smack Dab”, and a “life-could-be-good” melodic tune called “Set Me Free“.

David has many stories to tell… and not just in song.  As a long time performer and a supporter of the Music Festival, he has plenty to share with the audience and his fans.   Come hear what he has to say, and tap your toes as David weaves his tapestry of commentaries on life, and it’s twist and turns!  Welcome back David!

  1. Absolutely loved the Saturday show. David Fisher and his group were outstanding. Can you tell me the song list or titles of the songs David sang before Jose Carbrero took the stage and before Pasha took the state. One song was about the pain of words and how the stain can’t be taken away and the other song title I’m looking for was the next song he sang was a blues song which had to do with Momma and locking out her man.

    Also, I’m in La Cruz. Is there a store or venue in La Cruz that sells the San Pancho 2015 Festival T-Shirts.

    • We are not as familiar with David’s material as he is. So we will forward your questions to him directly.

      Regarding the Music Festival t-shirts… they are now being sold by Chez Lolo restaurant in San Pancho. We may be considering other outlets in the future, but for the time being they are only available through Chez Lolo. You may subscribe to the Festival website to receive future updates and news.

    • wow, bernie, i never saw this post. thanks for the feedback. the first song you mention is called “Waiting For The Pain” and the second one is “Ol’ Momma Blues”
      hope to see you in 2016. i’m playing Friday night.

      • Hi Dave

        I wondered why I never received a response to my email so thanks for clearing that up.

        Unfortunately, I cannot be In San Pancho this year. We hope to be back next year. We were there in 2014 and enjoyed it but we thought last year was outstanding. I looked for the music and the lyrics on the Net for the two songs you mentioned but I couldn’t find them. Are the songs your own compositions. I usually buy CDs when I hear music I like but I remember asking you last year if you had any CDs for sale and I recall you advising that you did not have any for sale. Will you be making any CDs of the songs you sang at the 2015 Festival. Your show (and Pasha) were outstanding. We bought their CD and they said they would be issuing another CD but so far I haven’t heard anything further.

        Thanks for responding to my email. I hope to catch your performance next year. All the best at 2016 Festival. I’m sure it will be a great one.
