Durham County Poets
Featuring: Kevin Harvey/Lead Vocal, David Whyte/Guitars, Neal Elsmore/Guitar Acoustic, Carl Rufh/Double Bass, James Preimel/Percussion
A lively and soulful five-piece folk and roots band from Southwest Quebec’s Chateauquay Valley, Durham County Poets perform an eclectic blend of blues, folk and rock with tinges
of country, gospel and swing tossed in for good measure.
Every member of the Durham County Poets are songwriters - individually or collaboratively composing a musical potpourri of ballads, gospel, blues and country-rock
Popular at music festivals and venues across eastern Canada and fresh on the heels of a well-received juried official showcase at the 2015 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) Conference, the band is branching out into the US.
Durham County Poets are “inventive in their taking musical roots and reshaping them,” says Spike Barkin, co-founder of the Roots of American Music Festival as
part of Lincoln Center Out of Doors in New York City.
Their recordings, Where The River Flows (2011) and Chikkaboodah Stew (2014), have prompted Pierre Lamontagnele of Le Net Blues One to call them, "of the great discoveries
of the year!”.
