Wow - time flies!
Seems like just yesterday we were gathered at The Sevareid House grooving to the sweet harmonies of The Honey Dewdrops. They just released a fantastic new album, "Anyone Can See" and put on a great album release show at Hill Country last weekend. They previewed some of these songs at our house show so if you enjoyed it -- pick it up or give it a listen from your favorite music purveyor.
We were privileged to be able to attend the Folk Alliance International in Montreal last month and saw a TON of great music. We'll be bringing a few of those artists to you this year.
The lineup above is a work in progress.
We have a few artists pending, a couple of dates still open and some space for some up and coming or local acts to do opening spots.
A FEW WORDS ABOUT WHY WE DO THIS: In a nutshell, we love music. We need music creators and music makers to reflect back to us the things that matter in our families, our community and in our society. Compensation from the sale of recorded music in physical form is fast disappearing. In order to continue to produce music artists must perform for an audience for money. Lucky for us - there is nothing that replaces the live music experience. Some artists tour constantly doing upwards of 200 shows per year. They do it because they are committed to their craft and because they love it. But all artists - local and touring deserve our support. ALL OF THE PROCEEDS FROM OUR SHOWS GO TO THE ARTISTS. We sell tickets in advance for reserved seating so we can ensure a seat for those who plan in advance to attend. We can only seat about 50 people but we usually have a few extra chairs and some standing room. By attending a live music show, you are part of a virtuous circle that ensures that music will live on and continue on for future generations. Who knows? You may meet some new friends at the same time!
WHO DOESN'T LOVE BRUNCH?! We are VERY EXCITED about the Concerts at the Sevareid House series opener. We first saw them 2 years ago at the Northeastern Folk Alliance (NERFA) and then again, last year, at Howard County's great house concert series - The Historic Cooper's House. The Durham County Poets earned an International Folk Alliance formal showcase selection this year. We're so lucky to finally land a date with these guys - they are SO MUCH FUN! We'll provide a main egg dish, fruit salad, yogurt, coffee and juices. BYOB (mimosas?) and a dish to share. Doors at 11:30. Show at 1 pm.
WHO DOESN'T LOVE THE BLUES?! The Durham County Poets are a lively and soulful group, who write and perform an eclectic blend of blues and folk, with tinges of gospel and swing tossed in for good measure. They are five seasoned musicians, all of whom are songwriters, who work together individually and collaboratively in composing their music. Delving into a variety of styles and genres, their musical influences include a broad range of artists.
From The Band to James Taylor, Muddy Waters to Dire Straits...They have managed to put it all together to create their own musical style. The obvious joie de vivre expressed while performing together is reflected in the good-time feel that the band creates, which has been captivating their audiences consistently since their inception in 2011. Fronted by Kevin Harvey, a self proclaimed blues crooner on lead vocals, The Durham County Poets also feature David Whyte on electric guitars and vocals, Neil Elsmore on guitars and vocals, Carl Rufh on double bass and vocals and Rob Couture (formerly of The Echo Hunters) on drums and percussion. Popular at music festivals and venues across eastern Canada, the band is branching more and more into the U.S. market, with more bookings up-coming in 2019. This fall, The DCP will release a new album dedicated to the blues. Join us for a fun, community building event in celebration of friends and great music!GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!
