Reid and Andersen play Gayville Hall Saturday Harvey Reid, an acclaimed musician and songwriter from New England, will star with New Hampshire fiddler, singer and songwriter Joyce Andersen at Gayville Hall, 502 Washington Street, in Gayville on Saturday, June 1, at 8 p.m.
Reid likes to call himself a modern-day minstrel. He lives in York, ME, and has been a folk musician for three decades, mastering the acoustic guitar, the six and 12-string banjos, the autoharp, the mandolin, and the bouzouki. His 1990 album, Steel Drivin' Man, was chosen by Acoustic Guitar Magazine in 1996 as one of the 10 essential folk CDs of all time.
Reid has released 15 CDs, the most recent in 2001 with Andersen, who hails from Portsmouth, NH. Andersen played in a number of bluegrass, swing, Celtic and country bands for 10 years before teaming with Reid two years ago. Andersen released her first solo CD in 2000.
The regular hosts at Gayville Hall, John and Susan McNeill of Springfield, will open the show. Admission is $10 at the door.
