A Coffeehouse in Rockport with an Awesome Band!

Yes, this band is indeed awesome. Not that I’m biased or anything. Of course the fact that the band is made up of my brother, niece and two nephews doesn’t influence my love for their music. Not at all, I swear (well…maybe just a bit). But it is true that I really think that anyone who digs roots music will find Daniel Dye & the Miller Road Band’s live show to be just as awesome as I do. They are playing this Thursday, March 13th at the Rockport Community House, with proceeds to benefit the work of Rockport Festivals, the group that puts together the Rockport Farmers Market, HarvestFest and Motif No.1 Day in downtown Rockport.

The Coffeehouse will feature the delicious coffee of Brothers’ Brew and give community members a chance to connect with the folks of Rockport Festivals. Opportunities to sign up to volunteer with the festivals and Farmers Market will be on hand, and we look forward to meeting up with our friends and neighbors and kicking off the spring after a long, cold, snowy winter.

Daniel Dye & the Miller Road Band are making a stop in Rockport on their Northeast mini-tour in support of their new album and feature a mix of original tunes in the style of indie-folk, Americana and roots music, playing everything from the fiddle, cello, viola, harmonica, mandolin, guitar, banjo to the melodica.
Please call me at 978-546-2861 or email rockportfestivals@gmail.com if you need any more information, and we’ll see you Thursday in Rockport!DDMRBpromoRockport SMALL

Free Music is Almost Always a Good Thing

This time, in my opinion, it’s a really good thing, if bluegrass/indie/Americana/folk music is your style. Singer-songwriter Daniel Dye is offering a couple of free downloads through his facebook page. Daniel’s music is all original – he comes up to Cape Ann a few times a year with his band, The Miller Road Band to play a mix of Americana music with bluegrass instruments (banjo, mandolin, guitar, harmonica, fiddle and even a cello). These people are all family members of mine, so I’m probably a little biased but if the Avett Brothers are your thing (or the suddenly-they’re-everywhere Mumford and Sons), you will probably want to take advantage of these free downloads. Of course, you have to be on facebook to take the band up on the offer but you can’t truly get something for nothing, I guess. Click here for the download: www.facebook.com/danieldyemusic.

Here’s a video of Daniel Dye & (part of) the band recording a show at public radio station WYSO.
