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.
Reid’s legendary acoustic and slide guitar work make a perfect backdrop for Andersen’s powerful fiddling, and they take turns on lead and harmony vocals to showcase a large and interesting repertoire of original, traditional and contemporary music. They have brought audiences to their feet at folk & bluegrass festivals, clubs, coffeehouses and concert halls across the US and in Europe, and have released 4 highly-acclaimed collaboration recordings.
Joyce Andersen is a greatly talented and versatile fiddler, songwriter and singer from New Hampshire who has recently stepped out as a solo artist. She spent over 10 years in New England, New York and Nashville, playing in numerous bluegrass, swing, celtic and country bands, taking her from the club and festival circuit all the way to Carnegie Hall (with The McKrells) and The Conan O’Brien Show (with Marshall Crenshaw)
After 30 years as a full-time performer, Harvey Reid is a familiar name to acoustic music fans everywhere, for his peerless stringed instrument work, profound composing and songwriting, lively stage shows, and his in-depth knowledge of traditional music. Reid won the Beanblossom flatpicking contest in 1976, the National Fingerpicking award in 1981 and the International autoharp contest in 1982, and has shared the stage with most of the great pickers of today.
