Sweet Mercy is comprised of multi-instrumentalists who play Americana-influenced originals and covers. They perform as an acoustic trio or quartet, and sometimes as a full out six-piece featuring electric guitar and drums.
The core members include John on guitar, keys, and harmonica; musicologist Craig Edwards on fiddle, mandolin, and accordion; local legend Sandy Allen on lap steel, mandolin and percussion; and jazz great Jaime Duquette on acoustic and electric bass. At any time there might be a dozen instruments on stage – and the guys will play all of them!
Sweet Mercy has opened for prestigious acts, including The Hoolios and The Carleans. And they’ve shared stages with such talented song writers as Dan Blakeslee and Haunt the House.
Recently the band’s hot licks and harmonies earned them a New London, CT Whalie Award for Best Roots Rock Band.
