David Norris was born and raised in St. Mary’s County. “I literally grew up in the middle of four cornfields on my grandmother’s farm in the colonial village of Chaptico, Maryland. I’ve been writing songs ever since I found out you were allowed to, and grew up singing with my twin brother Joseph (we still sing together occasionally).” David Norris can be heard these days singing traditional Irish music at D. B. McMillan’s Pub & Grill in California, Md., on Thursday and Friday nights.
