My Town My Music’s Local Artist Spotlight
David Wilson is the Lead Jammer of Rochester’s bluegrass-fusion band Root River Jam. He grew up in Preston, Minnesota. His father was a veterinarian; as a result, he spent many hours on random farms across the southeast region of the state, and thus developed a love of the outdoors.
Since he was young, music has been an important part of Dave’s life. Beginning in his elementary years, he performed in school concerts, plays, church programs, and in 4-H. It was through these activities that he realized he enjoyed being in front of an audience. Having older siblings who were also musically inclined helped shape him at an early age. And now, each gig that Dave plays is an opportunity to grow, explore, and hone his craft.
Dave finds that music provides him a place of refuge and room to challenge himself creatively. His songs focus on love, what-ifs, and what could be.
