On Saturday, May 26, 7:30, make your Memorial Day weekend memorable with friends and family at The Revival on Lake Algonquin in Wells, NY when we present The Durham County Poets, a lively and soulful group, who write and perform an eclectic blend of blues, folk and rock, with tinges of country, gospel and swing tossed in for good measure.
On tour from Quebec, Canada, they are five seasoned musicians, all of whom are songwriters, working 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 Dire Straits, Leon Redbone to James Taylor and Neil Young, 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.
Fronted by Kevin Harvey, a self proclaimed blues crooner on lead vocals, The Durham County Poets also feature David Whyte on electric and acoustic guitars and vocals, Neil Elsmore on acoustic guitar and vocals, Carl Rufh on double bass and vocals and Rob Couture on drums and percussion.
Te band has just finished up their third album, Grimshaw Road, that received impressive reviews. $10.00 at the door/under 12 free. Refreshments. Learn more at www.durhamcountypoets.com. Questions? 518 924-2041.
