Dalton's music is a product of her wide-ranging musical tastes.
She was born in Bloomsburg, Penn., into a family of music lovers. Her father played a variety of stringed instruments, sang and wrote songs.
Her mother played guitar and sang harmony, and her sister was a pianist.
Dalton's early influences were the classic country music of the '40s, '50s and '60s and later, the folk and rock sounds of writer/artists like Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Fred Neil. She's always been a writer and artist who loved music with a message and lyrics that somehow brought a new awareness to the listener.
She retains this love of material with a purpose, and her songwriting reflects that appreciation. The music is acoustic-based, Americana/folk and ranges from the quiet introspective to the rollicking good time.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Reserved tickets are recommended; seating is limited.
