The Durham County Poets is made up of five seasoned, lively and soulful musicians, all of whom are songwriters, working together, individually and collaboratively in composing their music. Delving into a variety of styles and genres, their musical influences include a broad range of artists. From The Band to Dire Straits, Leon Redbone to James Taylor and Neil Young, they have managed to put it all together to create their own musical style. The obvious joie de vivre expressed while performing together is reflected in the good-time feel that the band creates which has been captivating their audiences consistently since their inception 6 years ago.
Fronted by Kevin Harvey, a self-proclaimed blues crooner on lead vocals, the Durham County Poets also features David Whyte on electric and acoustic guitars and vocals, Neil Elsmore on acoustic guitar and vocals, Carl Rufh on double bass and vocals and Rob Couture (formerly of The Echo Hunters) on drums and percussion.
Popular at music festivals and venues across eastern Canada, the band is branching more and more into the U.S. market.
Durham County Poets sont originaires de la Vallée de la Châteauguay situé au Québec, Canada. Leurs influences sont variées, du blues au folk, du jazz au ragtime, entre autres. Chaque membre apporte un fond musical différent qui se marie au son folk soul du groupe. À ce jour, ils ont enregistré deux albums et ont joué un grand nombre de festivals, concerts et clubs de la côte Est des États-Unis et du Canada.
