Back to Events

We are pleased to announce our next Iowa Songwriters Showcase at The Goldfinch Room on Friday, November 8 featuring Melanie Devaney and Dan Tedesco.

Melanie Devaney is a folk-Americana singer-songwriter from the small town of Epworth in Dubuque County, Iowa (pop. 1,700).  Classically trained in piano and holding a degree in Creative Writing, her songs are stories from her own life’s adventures and the cast of characters she has met and created along the way.

Dan Tedesco is a guitar-driven, nationally touring singer-songwriter out of Des Moines, IA. Whether it be an acoustic folk ballad or a raw rock tune, Dan Tedesco’s music is the dirt on the hands of his generation’s working man. His band, Dan Tedesco and the Long Haul, ranges from a 3-piece touring act to a 9-piece act including additional vocals, piano/organ and 3-piece horn section.
