Dirty Linen Magazine ranks him with, “Woody Guthrie, Dylan, and Paul Simon,” while the New York Times calls him a, “respected cult figure,” whatever that may be.
When I think of David Massengill, I think in terms of pairs, some complementary, some contradictory….a gentle person but a powerful performer…equally skilled as a songwriter and storyteller…..songs full of narrative and allegory…his stories sing in a lyrical cadence and rhythm. A star of the sophisticated Greenwich Village folk scene, he doesn’t try to disguise his roots in rural Tennessee. John Henderson, Cornell Folk Club
Joe Virga’s musical roots spring from the Greenwich Village folk scene. After years making a living and performing music “on the side” retiremen has given Joe ample time to hone his craft. He has never left the folk scene and is active in all the festivals in SW Florida that he can attend, as well as out of state conventions and meeting. AND Joe is a founding member of the ACMA! Thanks joe!
