About Harvey Reid: This will be Harvey's first local concert appearance in 2 years. He has been playing to sold-out shows across the US and abroad, and is working on his 14th solo recording to be out in 2000. He will be performing with long-time musical associate Brian Silber (violin + viola) from Baltimore. Reid has lived in the Seacoast for 20 years, and has sold almost 50,000 recordings in the area, but has done very few concerts locally in the last few years. Expect some new music + his usual humor and assortment of traditional music, insightful songs + dazzling picking on acoustic + slide guitars, mandolin, 6-string banjo and autoharp."...one of the true treasures of American acoustic music ." (Acoustic Guitar Magazine)“The breadth of Reid's musical knowledge is amazing...” (Sing Out Magazine)"Harvey Reid is a one-man history of acoustic music." (The Missoulian)
