Joyce Andersen & Harvey Reid

Fri, Jan 18, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Joyce Andersen Harvey Reid

Doors at 7pm | Show at 8pm

Harvey Reid & Joyce Andersen will play separately and together, and will take you on a whirlwind tour of American music, with slashing blues, down-home bluegrass, gospel, razor-sharp duet harmony, dazzling fiddle tunes and flashy guitar instrumentals, and the songs that they grabbed out of the air themselves.

About Harvey Reid

Acoustic Guitar magazine called Harvey Reid “…one of the true treasures of American acoustic music,” and one of his 32 recordings was the only album in the last 25 years to be selected in their 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 acoustic musicians on the scene


About Joyce Andersen

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, a gypsy jazz band, through countless collaborations to center stage as a powerful singer, creator and instrumentalist. After 5 solo singer-songwriter albums and 5 acoustic folk collaborations with Harvey Reid, she has re-invented herself as an electro-acoustic solo violin troubadour. A reviewer said her new CD will “forever alter your perception of the violin.”
