Relative Harmony

Fresh from their success at Mariposa, local traditional folk combo and family band Relative Harmony are playing again in Guelph on August 8.

The show takes place at St. David and St. Patrick Church, 520 Speedvale Ave and starts at at 7:30 p.m. Admission is by donation (suggested donation, $15) and reservations can be made by contacting Rick and Judy or 519-763-2494 or [email protected].

Relative Harmony are Rick Avery, Judy Greenhill, Jonathan Avery and Judy Avery. Their most recent album “Rolling Home” (2012) features all four band members playing a plethora of instruments in a predominantly Celtic traditional style, with country and jazz stylings creeping in. Katie performs on fiddle, guitar, banjo ukulele and cello; Jonathan contributes on fiddle, drums, percussion; Rick plays guitar, banjo, piano, jaw-harp and cheeks(!); Judy plays guitar, spoons, bodhran, and feet. Together they have a unique family vocal blend of 4-part harmony, as they perform a diverse collection of mostly folk songs and dance tunes from the new CD.
