Blackstone Valley Bluegrass

With Dave Dick on banjo, his broth Bob Dick on guitar, Dan Nowlan on mandolin and Ken Taylor on upright bass, this seasoned group plays a wide range of bluegrass styles, complete with brilliant picking and smooth harmony, in a program which is entertaining for the entire family.

Their sound is contemporary, yet still firmly planted in the traditional sound of bluegrass. What can you expect at a BV show?  Fiery picking - Dave Dick on banjo and guitar is one of New England's finest multi-instrumentalists.  Tight trio harmonies -  Bob Dick on guitar has had a legacy of being in bands with great harmony singing, and brings that level of detail to all the trios the band sings.  Gospel quartets - Ken Taylor on bass not only makes the ground shake with his powerful bass playing, but also his deep bass voice.  Energy - Dan Nowlan on the mandolin puts out a tremendous amount of energy and emotion to all the songs which makes for a dynamic performance.  The band has two CDs available - Debut (2007) and Soulshine (2011) and Bob Dick has his CD Life's Highway which was released in August of 2014.
