Dave Soroka

Rock and roll poet on tour

It’s been four years since Dave Soroka’s been to Vancouver Island.

The Grand Forks, B.C., singer/songwriter says, “I don’t play out much anymore, but after awhile, I begin to miss the road and my friends.”

So he’s putting together a nine-night tour that kicks off Friday, Nov. 3 at 2834 Wentworth Rd. with the Woodstove Festival in Courtenay, and from there consists entirely of house concerts, in the homes of the friends he wants to visit.

Soroka began writing songs in 1969 and has written more than one thousand – songwriting has been his life. In the last 17 months he has had entire albums of his songs recorded by Nova Scotia singer Sunny Daye, and by Victoria band, The Party On High Street.

His material rooted in the old-timey rock’n’roll of the ‘50s, but influenced heavily by the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Warren Zevon, Lucinda Williams and others.
