David Coffin: Live from the Revels Stage

Item Number: CD2019


Available for download through Amazon

For regular Revels attendees and past performers, this 2-CD set is a magic carpet that will transport you back to favorite moments as well as a marvelous showcase for David Coffin, Revels’ Master of Ceremonies and one of Revels’ most versatile performers.

This was going to be a compilation of songs from all the studio recordings on which I participated. But in conversation with my wife Kirsten, it dawned on us that there were songs I had performed on stage that had not been recorded in the studio. Searching through the archives revealed more songs than I had remembered and the project took an about face, becoming a CD consisting solely of live performances, with many songs that do not appear on any Revels recordings.

One of the joys of performing with Revels as song leader is the opportunity to lead a large audience that really comes to sing. With this live recording, we capture the unparalleled sound of twelve hundred Revels audience members joining the cast in song. What I hope for in curating this project is that the listener will experience the energy in the songs generated from performing for a live audience…
