Dave Rowe Trio

Hairy-chested, fiddle-driven nautical songs, rollicking bluegrass and Appalachian tunes, old-timey instrumental masterpieces, broad-shouldered Celtic classics, captivating originals, and Downeast wit pepper every show by the Maine-based Dave Rowe Trio. Seasoned musicians Dave Rowe, Kevin O'Reilly and Zach Ovington seamlessly blend traditional and contemporary music with themes of northern New England, its interesting culture and rich heritage, effectively transporting the listener to the great state of Maine—from mountains to foothills to coast, from factory worker to farmer to fisherman. Dave’s own sturdy songcraft is uniquely suited to express these traditional themes and imagery of hard work, community, and family together with stunning clarity. The trio’s inventive use of instrumentation on guitar, fiddle, electric bass, and tin whistles along with their strong three-part vocal harmonies hearken back to the great folk bands of the 1960s create a unique musical tapestry rarely heard in the contemporary folk landscape.
