Singer-songwriter David Newbould, whose soulful work has been featured on television’s “Criminal Minds,” “Dawson’s Creek” and “Party of Five,” will roll his rollicking brand of rock-edged Americana into the High Country, when he and his band visit Blowing Rock’s Canyons for a free holiday week kickoff show Friday, June 29.

Through his constant touring and prodigious song output, Newbould, a native Canadian, has cultivated a following of fans, critics and industry execs alike, drawing loyal crowds from coast to coast. Currently based in Nashville, he’s frequently invited to participate in the revered songwriter showcases regularly staged at the storied Bluebird Café, famed launching pad for the careers of stars from Kathy Mattea to Garth Brooks.

Newbould’s honest writing style and raspy, melodic delivery, which often draw comparisons to both Ryan Adams and Edwin McCain, will be highlighted in full force at Canyons, as he’ll feature brand new material from his latest album, “Tennessee,” slated for release later this summer.

Of his new work, Newbould said, “All I know is that this work is a long haul. I’ve been running towards these songs and this place for a long time. I’m glad we all found each other and am very excited to get this out into the world.”

You can find Newbould at Canyons in Blowing Rock, located at 8960 U.S. 321. The Friday, June 29, show is free, open to all ages and scheduled to start at 8 p.m. For more information, visit or call (828) 295-7661.
