Durham County Poets perform April 27 at The Commons
DOVER-FOXCROFT – Hailing from Ormstown, Québec and the surrounding Chateauguay Valley, the Durham County Poets will bring their soulful folk music with hints of blues and jazz to The Commons at Central Hall at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. The Commons Executive Director Tara Smith said that both spectators and dancers are encouraged to attend.
The five seasoned musicians, all of whom are songwriters, previously played in various blues, gospel, rock and country bands before joining forces in 2011. This varied background allows the band to transition smoothly between genres during performances. Kevin Harvey is the lead vocalist, with David Whyte on electric and acoustic guitars, and vocals; Neil Elsmore on acoustic guitar and vocals; Carl Rufh on double bass and vocals; and Rob Couture on drums.
The Durham County Poets launched their third album “Grimshaw Road,” in May of 2017 and the group has toured throughout the provinces of Quebec and Ontario, as well as in New York state and throughout New England. For more about the band, visit durhamcountypoets.com.
The April 27 performance is being brought to the region by the Center Theatre and The Commons at Central Hall. Tickets may be purchased online at the Center Theatre website, www.centertheatre.org.
