Kick Off the Summer with the Durham County Poets at Hubbard Hall!

June 1 @ 7:00 pm

Cambridge, NY – Hubbard Hall is thrilled to announce an exciting musical event to kick off the summer season. On Saturday, June 1st at 7:00 pm, Hubbard Hall will be hosting the acclaimed Durham County Poets, best known for their 2019 album “Hand Me Down Blues,” a Juno Award nominee for Blues Album of the Year.

Hailing from Quebec, the Durham County Poets have captivated audiences across Canada and the United States, gracing stages at popular music festivals and venues, like The Linda in Albany. Their eclectic sound draws from a rich tapestry of genres, including blues, folk, soul, country, gospel, and New Orleans swing. As Nate Dow from Fallout Shelter, Massachusetts, aptly put it, “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.”

The band’s journey began in a small café in Ormstown, Quebec, and their unique blend of styles has since earned them a prominent place on the Canadian music scene. Each member contributes to the songwriting and arrangement, creating a sound that is both diverse and seamlessly woven together. Their latest album, “Out of the Woods,” produced by Bill Garrett and released in May 2022, showcases original, uplifting compositions that reflect their experiences over the past two years.

The Durham County Poets have received numerous accolades, including:

  • 2022 Maple Blues Awards: Male Vocalist of the Year (Kevin Harvey)

  • 2022 #4 on the Penguin Eggs/Roots Music Canada 2022 Critics’ Album of the Year list: “Out of the Woods”

  • 2021 Maple Blues Awards: Best Producer/Recording (Bill Garrett) for “Hand Me Down Blues”

  • 2021 Maple Blues Awards: Best Songwriter (Kevin Harvey)

  • 2020 JUNO Awards: Blues Album of the Year

  • 2020 Canadian Folk Music Awards: Traditional Singer of the Year (Kevin Harvey)
