Old Bowie Town Grille, 8604 Chestnut Avenue, Bowie, MD
Characterized by high energy and strong vocal harmonies, The 19th Street Band bridges the musical traditions of bluegrass and roots from Ireland to the Appalachia with their eclectic gypsy-rock spirit literally leaping from the stage and engaging every crowd. The charismatic vibe that Caolaidhe Davis (guitarplayer/vocalist) blends with fiddle/mandolin player/vocalist (and wife), Meghan Davis, creates a joy-filled chemistry that no crowd can resist. Add to the mix the talented rhythm section, Greg Hardin (bass) & Patty Dougherty (drums), and this band will have every crowd addicted. The band’s newest album, Diamond in the Rough, was chosen as ‘Album of the Month’ on West Norfolk Radio, was selected as a finalist for this year’s Wammie Awards and is currently receiving air play on a hundred different radio stations throughout the UK. It includes three songs that were co-written by the late, great Philip Donnelly and John Prine. Donnelly invited the band to record these songs with him in Tipperary, Ireland. The band is honored to be performing at this year’s DelFest.
