James Meadow LIVE FROM MODENA, ITALY
October 11 @ 3:00 AM - 5:00 PM CEST
James Meadow, aka Davide Falcone, is an anthropologist singer-songwriter. His stage name, concealing a reference to the well-known anthropologist Margaret Mead, reflects his search for a synthesis between song form and ethnographic writing.
His musical roots lie in the American folk-rock acoustic scene. Inspired by artists such as Bruce Cockburn and Michael Hedges, his finger-style technique, open tunings and expressive instruments are par excellence. In 2016, he began a journey as a troubadour in Italian, European and Canadian squares, and eventually he performed at the Ye Olde Orchard Pub in Montreal (QC), the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 276 in Slocan (BC) and The Dam Restaurant in South Slocan (BC). In the years that followed, he toured Italy playing solo and opening acts for acclaimed artists, such as Christian Kjellvander and Bocephus King. Moreover in March 2020, he was part of the Townes Van Zandt International Festival and Friends of Townes Festival.
