Singer songwriter Fred Dawson and bassist Amy Gieske have teamed to bring Dawson’s songs to a new audience in the West. Their music, drawing on rock, blues and country influences, blends driving rhythms, unusual chord structures and strong melodies in a style that’s uniquely their own. Previously based in New York where he performed at clubs such as The Bitter End, Tramps and Kenny’s Castaways, Dawson has appeared with an eclectic range of artists, including Richie Havens, the New York Dolls, Vassar Clemens, Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt and Pete Seeger. Gieske has performed widely in Colorado and Wyoming, currently as a member of the Jeff Finlin Band and the Todd Scott Trio and earlier with the Little Luke Band, Jalan Crossland, King Turbine and the Generators and others. Previously she pursued a career as a solo artist in Boston and New England.
