Joyce Andersen and Harvey Reid (Folk Acoustic)

Event Date: 
Saturday, May 25, 2013 - 8:00pm

Reid & Andersen will play separately and together, and will keep you on the edge of your seats as they take you on a whirlwind tour of American music. Expect slashing blues, down-home bluegrass, razor-sharp duet harmonies, dazzling fiddle tunes and flashy guitar instrumentals, and everything from Woody Guthrie to Blind Willie Johnson, Billie Holiday and Jimi Hendrix.

Acoustic Guitar magazine called Harvey Reid "...one of the true treasures of American acoustic music, and one of his 27 recordings was the only album in the last 25 years to be selected in a list of Top 10 Folk CD's of all time. Guitar Player Magazine put him on their "desert island" CD list. He was the national fingerpicking champion and international autoharp winner, and Doc Watson took him to lunch to ask him how he played the 6-string banjo. Reid's songs have been recorded by dozens of artists, and after 35 years he is one of the most respected and versatile songwriters and acoustic players on the scene. www.woodpecker.com

Joyce Andersen has made her way from side-gal gigs in country, folk and bluegrass bands, a celtic band that played Carnegie Hall, a rock band on the Conan O'Brien Show, Irish fiddle sessions and a gypsy jazz band, through countless collaborations and studio sessions to center stage as a powerful singer, creator and instrumentalist. After 4 solo singer-songwriter albums and 4 acoustic folk collaborations with Harvey Reid, she now is re-inventing herself as an "electro-acoustic fiddle troubadour" and has created an exciting new body of new music for violin and voice. A reviewer said her new solo CD will "forever alter your perception of the violin." www.joyscream.com
