Welcome to Relative Harmony !
(formerly Rick and Judy)
Relative Harmony is an acoustic
trio comprised of Rick Avery (vocals, keyboards, guitar and banjo); Judy Greenhill (vocals, guitar ), Jonathan Avery (vocals,violin and percussion). Our daughter Katie Avery
(vocals, violin, cello, guitar) joins us on occasion when she is back in Southern Ontario. Currently, she resides in Whitehorse in the Yukon Territories, where she performs with local bands and teaches Suzuki Violin.
We perform a variety of British and North American folk
music, a sampling of which is listed on the many CDs we've released. We are pleased and excited to announce the upcoming release of our most recent recording Rolling Home that features all four of us singing and playing a wide range of folk songs and tunes. The official release will be taking place on December 19th, 2012 at the Green Door Cabaret on Ossington Street in Toronto. Recording and mixing are finished, and you can hear samples of the recording here.
With Judy as caller, Relative Harmony has been playing for
Contra, Square and English Country dances since the turn of the millennium.
Our style is influenced by the playing of many of the current New England
dance bands, and is sure to keep you on your toes with a strong, steady
back-beat and energetic fiddling. We have performed all over Ontario,
including Ottawa, Owen Sound, Toronto and Hamilton; in the U.S.; and at
a plethora of school, community, camp and wedding dances.
