Live Music: Joyce Andersen and Harvey Reid

Saturday, February 21, 2015, 8:00 pm
Dunaway Center, 23 School Street, Ogunquit

Joyce Andersen and Harvey Reid have combined their talents to create one of the most potent duo teams in acoustic music. They are both gifted instrumentalists, strong and versatile singers, and prolific songwriters, and are comfortable in a dizzying array of styles of roots and Americana music. They jump from showstopping celtic jigs and old-time fiddle tunes to house-shaking blues rockers, soaring gospel duets, and achingly beautiful ballads.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door and may be purchased at the Ogunquit Camera Shop, Ogunquit Welcome Center, and the Dunaway Center. Tickets may also be purchased online at www.ogunquit.org/shop.php.
