The RMS Five
Americana and Gospel: From the Delta to Appalachia and Beyond
Five of the driving forces behind New England’s highly acclaimed Rock My Soul Gospel Choir branch off to form a roots-based sound of rich vocal blends and soul-stirring harmonies, with a repertoire that explores American music from the Delta blues of greats such as Blind Willie Johnson, to the folk gospel of Washington Phillips, to the more contemporary Americana music of Buddy Miller and the Band’s Levon Helm. Along the way, listeners are treated to traditional arrangements of slave spirituals, hymns, and songs from the “golden age of gospel.”
The RMS Five performs throughout New England. Shows are appropriate for audiences of all ages.
The RMS Five is
Dawn Boyer, Jody Dugrenier, Brett Hartenbach, Terry Olson, and Tina Weinberger. Frequently accompanying the group are renowned Seacoast NH musicians Bob Halperin on slide/acoustic guitar and Mike Effenberger on keyboards. The RMS Five also performs with a full band at certain venues.
