January 27, 2019: The Reunion Band

The Reunion BandCalling all bluegrass fans -- the Reunion Band is back! Known for tight vocal harmonies and a solid traditional bluegrass sound, the Reunion Band features Boston-area veterans Richard Brown (mandolin), Dave Dillon (rhythm guitar), Margaret Gerteis (acoustic bass), Laura Orshaw (fiddle) and Catherine "BB" Bowness (banjo). Formed in 2002, the group's core members have played together in various configurations for over 30 years. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Dave Dillon played with Don Stover as well as the renowned Joe Val and the New England Bluegrass Boys. Richard Brown, Monroe-style mandolinist and lead/baritone, joined Dave in the Hudson Valley Boys and the Stony Lonesome band. Rhythm bassist and high tenor Margaret Gerteis also played in Stony Lonesome, as well as Apple Country and Hazel Dickens. They are joined by two newer members: young fiddler & singer Laura Orshaw, praised by far and wide for her "boundless energy ... and contagious joy," and New Zealand native BB Bowness, who won the Uncle Dave Macon banjo competition at the tender age of 15. Together, the Reunion Band will blend their communal experience and vitality into a night of hot picking and sweet singing.
