During morning worship, the Whelks band accompanied the First Congregational Church choir in Keith Christopher’s “Poor Wayfaring Stranger.” For the Postlude, they sang Gillian Welch’s gentle and haunting “Dear Someone.”
The Whelks are an acoustic trio hailing from Warren and Tiverton, RI, consisting of Peri DeLorenzo on fiddle, Mark Dobbyn on guitar, and Erin Lobb Mason on upright bass. They play a mix of swing, country, old time, bluegrass, Irish, folk, and their own original songs, all dressed up in glorious three part harmony.
The Whelks will be performing on November 26 at the SEMAP Event at Buzzard’s Bay Brewing, 12-4pm. You can learn more about this talented group at https://www.whelkswhelkswhelks.com/
