David Dodson writes great songs that run the gamut of American styles – folk, rock, blues, jazz and country – and range from poignant to hilarious. He plays a mean guitar, tells a good story, sings like a bird, and he’s got rhythm. Plus, he’s shared the stage with K D Lang, Bill Staines, Ramblin Jack Elliot, Gordon Bok, Dougie MacLean, The Persuasions, Greg Brown, Joe Ely, Marcia Ball, Sha Na Na, Chicago, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Who could ask for anything more?
John and Rachel Nicholas’ songbook is full of extraordinary original music that speaks to the ordinary heart. Add their songbook to Dodson’s and you have an embarrassment of riches. With the rock-solid Michael Nickerson on bass, John and David on acoustic and electric guitars and the dynamic David-Rachel-John vocal trio, all of their songs come alive. Their joie de vivre is a lift to the spirit.
