A staple of the renowned Kerville Folk Festival since winning the “New Folk” award there in 1986, Roth’s has performed at venues as varied as United Center — where he twice sang the national anthem before Chicago Bull’s games — to the United Nations — where he performed “Earth” for the institution’s 40th anniversary in 1985.

Now he can add the Price Seniors Center to his list.

Roth will perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4 at the Price center, 222 W. San Antonio St. General seating is limited to 100 attendees. Tickets are $15, which includes a wine-and-cheese reception with Roth preceding the performance.

Andrea Marcovicci performed Roth’s “Riging in Love” at the centennial of Carnegie Hall in 1991 and Noel Paul Stookey — the Paul of Peter, Paul and Mary — frequently performs a Roth-penned song, “Spacesuites.” Two of his works — “Manuel Garcia” and “Nine Gold Medals” — were published in Chicken Soup for the Soul books.

The Supple Music Series was started in 2003 by Texas State’s folk music-loving former president, the late Jerry Supple and his wife, Cathy. The series is coordinated now as part of the College of Fine Arts & Communication’s Encore Performing Arts Series.
