Andy and Judy (Acoustic Duo)-Open Mic Feature 10-21-10


Andy and Judy: An acoustic duo playing guitar, piano and harmonica

Andy Daigle and Judy Neveu live in Bridgewater and have been singing together for about a year and a half. It’s a duo built upon common ground. Each draw from a wealth of experience they received while singing with various choruses and choirs throughout their lives.

Their performances are highlighted by the quality of their vocal work, each individually and joined together with beautiful harmonies. They perform songs from Tricia Yearwood, John Denver, John Prine, James Taylor, Peter Paul and Mary, Simon and Garfunkle and many other folk and country artists.

Both New England natives, Judy is originally from Taunton where she was introduced to folk music at an early age through her mom’s Neil Diamond and Peter, Paul and Mary records. Andy was born in Maine into a musical family. He spent most of his youth in upstate New York where he grew up listening to folk and church music while traveling with his family before eventually settling in Malden.
Interestingly enough, Judy is related to Fred Pike, the man credited with bringing Bluegrass to the state of Maine. Although Judy prefers listening to 80’s rock bands, she hasn’t quite convinced Andy to adapt some of those songs into their repertoire.

They’ve promised all new material for their feature this Thursday, save for one very special song. We’ll have to wait and see what surprise might be in store.  Open Mic starts at 7pm, Performer signup is at 6:30. $3 admission.
