Join us for the Park Theater's grand opening concert!
The North & South Dakotas set out crafting a sound that paid homage to the spirit of old time'y American music, mountain folk, and singer-songwriter traditions. From quick pickin' newgrass tunes, to heartfelt ballads, The Dakotas bring a unique and original energy to the stage.
Though the band spent many years as a five-piece with drummer Mike Graves, and the past two years as a more traditional bluegrass quartet with utility man Nayt Patenaude (Dobro, Banjo, Mandolin), the Dakotas continue on as an ever-rotating cast of string players from the Upstate NY region.
In this more intimate setting, the band continues to write original, genre-sweeping music that makes use of their trademark vocal harmonies and the musical sensibilities of each band member's different background.
