Rockland Public Library Concert: John & Rachel Nicholas
John and Rachel Nicholas have been making music together for more than 30 years. Their compelling songs are anchored in the history of folk, roots, and popular music and tell stories that are deep and true. Their soulful harmonies have been described as singing “with one voice.”
Their most recent EP, ‘House of Dreams,’ was released in August 2016 and spent a total of seven weeks on WERU’s most played CDs. From their previous release -‘Here You Are’ – their songs ‘People Like Us’ and ‘America, It’s You’ were both award winning entrants in The Great American Songwriting Contest in 2009.
Since moving to Midcoast Maine in 2012, they have become known for hosting a music series at Harbor Square Gallery for six years as well as their collaborative band, The Lowdown, with fellow singer-songwriter David Dodson. They have also become regular features at the Sweet Chariot Music Festival. They have shared the stage with Dave Mallett, Patty Larkin, Chris Smither, Paul Sullivan, Mary Gauthier and many others throughout New England.
