Concert: Joyce Andersen and Harvey Reid

Northwood Congregational Church, 881 First NH Turnpike, Northwood NH
Joyce Andersen and Harvey Reid, Sunday November 19, 4:00 - 6:00 pm
Suggested donation $12.00 / children 12 & under free

After 20 years as a fiddle sideman and singer-songwriter, playing in bluegrass, country, rock, celtic, jazz and folk ensembles, Joyce Andersen has boldly created a new body of music and a new musical standard for the unaccompanied fiddle troubadour.  A reviewer said her solo CD “SWERVE” will "forever alter your perception of the violin." Most recently she has been on a songwriting tear and several choirs, including Voices from the Heart, are performing her uplifting songs.

Acoustic Guitar magazine called Harvey Reid " 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 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.

Andersen and Reid will play solo sets and perform together, and will keep you on the edge of your seats with a special uplifting Sunday repertoire of old gospel songs, new spirituals and any other songs they see fit to play that fit into the spirit of the day. Expect slide guitar, dazzling fiddle, razor-sharp duet harmonies, guitar instrumentals, down-home bluegrass, and some rousing sing-a-longs.
