Downers Grove's Two Way Street Coffee House to host 'An Evening with Dennis Warner' Nov. 19
Nationally touring singer-songwriter Dennis Warner returns to the Two Way Street Coffee House, 1047 Curtiss St. in Downers Grove, on Friday, Nov. 19. The concert starts at 8 p.m. with the doors opening at 7:30 p.m. Admission is a suggested $10 donation.
Toward the beginning of the pandemic, Warner released his 11th album, "Pilot Me," which debuted on the Folk DJ radio charts at No. 8 in August. He was among the top 10 for Artist of the Month.
His breakthrough album "Seeds" was named one of the best CDs of 2012 in folk music, based on radio play around the world. Folk DJ also named him one of the top artists in folk music that year. "Midnight Special" host Rich Warren designated "Seeds" as his "CD Pick of the Week" on his nationally syndicated show.
2018 was a big year for Warner. Early that year, he was invited to the RoundGlass Music Awards in New York City celebrating "Enlightened musicians from around the globe who create music to make the world a better place." A few months later, Warner was honored to perform for the Parliament of the World's Religions in Toronto, where 7,500 attendees representing 230 different faiths from around the planet gathered finding ways to coexist in our diverse world.
Early in 2020, Warner was featured on the popular PBS TV show "Backroads." Produced by Lakeland Public Broadcasting, the sold out concert celebrated his original music and was syndicated throughout the PBS network.
Warner is a two-time McKnight Foundation Artist Award winner and three-time finalist for the prestigious Kerrville Folkfest songwriting awards, co-founded by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary.
His "Beads On One String" book, now in its seventh printing, celebrates our "connectedness" and features a bully prevention curriculum for elementary schools currently being used throughout the U.S. and internationally as well.
His concerts blend serious, thought provoking songs with lighter, up-tempo material. Warner is noted for being an entertainer, bringing the audience into the performance with laughter and even a couple of sing-alongs.
Warner is excited to return to Two Way Street, "The intimacy of the Two Way Street makes it a favorite place to perform. It's well respected in the music community for hosting an audience that embraces acoustic, lyric driven music. This will be a fun evening!"
