Durham County Poets are known for their eclectic blend of blues, folk, roots, and gospel. Hailing from Quebec’s Chateauguay Valley, the band was nominated for a 2020 Juno Award for Blues Album of the Year and two 2020 Maple Blues Awards.
Featuring Kevin Harvey (lead vocals), David Whyte (electric and acoustic guitars, vocals), Neil Elsmore (acoustic guitar, vocals), Carl Rufh (triple bass, that’s a double bass and a regular bass, trombone, vocals), and Rob Couture (drums, percussion). Regular guest players include Mark LeClerc (saxophone) and Patrice Luneau (saxophone) for the full-meal-deal seven-piece band.
“Lead singer Kevin Harvey and his band are sonic shape shifters of the first order. Whether it’s blues, folk, soul, country, gospel or New Orleans swing, they purvey it with skill, aplomb and pure honesty.” – Nate Dow
