Concert on the Square hosts John Dalton Worth on July 24

Posted: Tuesday, July 14, 2015 1:44 pm

The Mountain Grove Central Business District Association presents John Dalton Worth for the Concert on the Square series July 24.  The show starts at 6 p.m. and will go to 9 p.m.  Persons can bring their lawn chairs and enjoy this free concert.

John Dalton Worth is a self-taught musician, singer and songwriter whose music expounds on the hopes, dreams, challenges, loves, sorrows, and triumphs of the common man.

Born in rural upstate New York, he grew up listening to his father’s Hank Williams records, and he wore out his older sister’s Beatles albums, and has been singing since he could barely walk.  He has developed a style that is uniquely his own blend of Old Country, Cajun Blues, Folk Ballads, and classic Rock & Roll.

His songs, which he lovingly calls his children, develop from true life events or stories from his own imagination.  Starting with a seed idea, he writes both the words and music, sings and plays all his own instruments, and does his own production, recording, and mastering.  He is currently working on his fifth album.

John resides in the area with his wife, Julie, and a house full of animals.  He still performs and spends long hours in his own studio with his ladies (his many guitars, all named and pampered used to achieve a particular sound), as he records his own music as well as recording and producing single artists and small groups.
