About Dave Kline
Dave Kline is a fiery electric and acoustic violinist, creating an impact with his fresh take on fiddling. A transplanted Brit, Dave has been performing since 1972, sharing the stage with the likes of Chick Corea, Dwight Yoakam and Veronneau. Dave's music has been featured on NPR and DC's local stations WPFW, WUMC and Takoma Park’s WOW radio. Dave was interviewed for Paris TV station Godjo TV. Dave and his band are based in Washington, DC. A regular guest of award winning Veronneau on stage and in the studio, Dave has appeared on three of their CD releases Joie de Vivre, which was featured in the US top 10 charts for World and Jazz music, Snow Time, which won the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA) WAMMIE award for Best Jazz Album, 2014 (Dave also engineered and co-produced this album), and Love and Surrender which was in the top 5 of Roots Music Report Wrold Chart for over 15 weeks (which Dave also engineered and co-produced). CBC Music recognized Dave’s violin “gypsy jazz” as adding “color and depth” to Veronneau’s energetic sound. Dave Kline has enlivened audiences at IOTA, Gypsy Sally's, Blues Alley, and other local venues. He has fiddled in repeat performances at Washington, DC area festivals including the Alexandria Jazz and World Festivals, the Petworth Jazz Festival and Takoma Park JazzFest.
Dave's album, Life's Little Mysteries, succinctly demonstrates the breadth of his original compositions. Another album Dave released was Eclecticity. In 2017, Dave released Shifting Borders which reached #1 on the Top 50 Jazz Charts with Roots Music.
