Nicholas Keays and the North River to Make Their Festival Debut at MariposaPosted on
After he moved on from a ten-year stint as the front man of a touring rock band, Nicholas Keays spent time writing and stockpiling a bunch of great songs for a rainy day. When it came time to make his next move, he went in a new direction, joining Justin Rich and Jason Turner to form Nicholas Keays and the North River. The trio has crafted a stripped down, harmony filled, sound that is gracefully carried by a standup bass, acoustic guitar, banjo, and a kick drum fashioned out of an old suitcase. They play tunes of home and family that are hook-filled, simple, and of the foot stompin’ variety.
