10/5/96 Brian SIlber, Rick Watson, Lynn Rothermich & Harvey
Reid at the Unitarian Church in Portsmouth NH at Coming of Winter Concert.
On 10/10/92 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his 1st album, Harvey corralled 3 of his favorite musicians: Brian Silber (violin, viola) from Baltimore, Lynn Rothermich (vocals) from Branson, MO, & Rick Watson (vocals, keyboard, bass, mandolin, guitar, accordion, banjo) from Valparaiso, IN to do a concert at the Unitarian Church in Portsmouth, NH. They have performed & recorded with him for 20, 19 and 16 years, respectively, but this was the 1st time they all performed together. On Oct 5 this year they did it again, and launched The Coming of Winter Concert. Harvey plans to make it an annual event. So Oct 4, 1997 there will be the 3rd annual concert in Portsmouth. He recorded both the '92 and the '96 shows, and there may be a live album some time, or at least a bootleg. There was old and new material, and a lot of things not usually performed. It is a spectacular time of year to be in New England, and plans are afoot to make it special every year, with mystery guests if possible.
