     Blackstone Valley Bluegrass Band

                                                   Dave              Dan              Ken              Bob                                       

Blackstone Valley Bluegrass is becoming one the most sought after bands in New England. With powerful three and four part harmonies and fast but tasteful picking, these musicians are blazing new ground throughout the Blackstone Valley and beyond.  If you want to hear some great bluegrass music, come on out and see Blackstone Valley Bluegrass.  You will not be disappointed!  

 

Check out our new CD!!  Scott McLennan of the Telegram and Gazette writes; “Debut” is an acoustic stunner, bursting with fast-flying notes and sturdy vocal harmonies............no matter which direction the band chooses for an approach, the performances are inevitably crackling with an energy one is more accustomed to hearing from a stage than from stereo speakers. "  See our Music page for ordering info and some sound bytes!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some bands are fun to hear and watchSome bands are made up of great players.

  Blackstone Valley Bluegrass is both. 

Together almost 10 years, Blackstone Valley Bluegrass features renown banjo picker Dave Dick, his brother Bob Dick on guitar, Dan Nowlan on mandolin and Ken Taylor on upright bass.  Blackstone Valley plays great bluegrass music; the fast ones fast - and the slow ones - with lots of feeling.

Bob, Dave, Dan and Ken have all played in lots of other bands - some nationally famous such as Salamander Crossing, Northern Lights and Front Range - but it is together in Blackstone Valley Bluegrass where they really shine. Good friends all, they have the best time when they’re on stage. Jokes fly as fast as the notes, the boys swap blistering solos and even instruments, and they harmonize like the angels. They might even eschew the microphones and walk into the audience to lead a gospel number before the set ends, which no matter how long is always way too soon.

If you love bluegrass music and love a good time, you owe it to yourself to catch the Blackstone Valley Bluegrass Band live. Their audiences always have a blast, guaranteed!
