Concert Will Benefit Food Bank

Joe Ehrbar Correspondent
 

For a quarter of a decade, Spokane singer-guitarist Dan Bosch had made music his life.

He’s a determined musician who has yet to taste commercial success. Somehow he keeps going, relating his experiences and struggles in his songs.

On Thursday, Bosch, his partner, singer-guitarist Pamela Van Kirk, and the Messengers of Soul band will play a benefit concert for the Spokane Food Bank at The Met.

In the ‘70s, the folk singer left Spokane and headed for Greenwich Village in New York City hoping to win a following in the district’s notable folk scene.

Often broke and sometimes homeless during his time there, Bosch never landed a record deal and ultimately returned to Spokane.

But that career setback never curbed his musical appetite. He’s still on the hunt for success.

On his own, he has released an album called “Daydreamer” and a handful of demo tapes.

He’s also made numerous concert appearances in the area over the years. Two years ago, Bosch played to hundreds when he made his debut at The Met.

Fans of Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot should easily acclimate to this veteran singer.

The concert starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 and are available at G&B; outlets.
