Della Mae:

Friday, June 5th, 8PM

Picture of Della Mae band Since its formation in 2009, Della Mae, the Boston-bred, Nashville-based outfit, has established a reputation as a charismatic, hard-touring live act, building a large and enthusiastic fan base while racking up critical acclaim with its first two albums. The This World Oft Can Be album was Grammy nominated in 2013.Their new self-titled album will be released on May 12 and honors the musicians’ roots in bluegrass, folk and rock while staking out a distinctive, organic sound and style that are Della Mae’s own. The album reflects the musicians' compelling new compositions and the raw immediacy of their vocal and instrumental performances.

Della Mae returns to Newburyport for their second appearance at the Belleville Roots Music Concert Series. Members of the band are Celia Woodsmith—vocals, guitar, Kimber Ludiker-fiddle, vocals, Jenni Lyn Gardner—mandolin, vocals, Courtney Hartman—guitar, banjo vocals and Zoe Guigueno—bass, vocals.

Although Della Mae maintains a busy touring schedule, Della Mae serves as cultural ambassadors in the U.S. State Department's American Music Abroad program. In that capacity, they have undertaken a series of extended trips to Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, playing concerts for local audiences as well as collaborating with local musicians and participating in children's music education programs.

Belleville Roots:

Belleville Congregational Church has longstanding roots in the Newburyport community as a gathering place and supporter of local service organizations. The Roots Music Series, founded in December of 2010, has three important missions: First, the series brings a variety of high quality Roots Music concerts to the Newburyport area for all to enjoy. The series celebrates music ranging from a cappella to zydeco and includes a diverse range of blues, bluegrass, Cajun, Celtic, country, folk, gospel, Irish, jazz and world music. The second mission of the Roots Music Series is to raise funds to restore and maintain the historic 1867 Belleville Meeting House and adjacent Fiske Chapel complex at 300 High Street in Newburyport. Our objective is that the Meeting House and adjacent complex will continue to serve as a gathering place for many generations to come. The third mission is building community through music.
