Slow Boat Home is a fun-loving Americana band playing original tunes mixed with a lively collection of country, blues, jazz, and jug band music. Selecting many tunes from the first half of the 20th century, Slow Boat Home makes them their own with stellar lead and ensemble vocals, harmonica, mandolin, bass, dobro, guitars, keyboard, and percussion. When it comes to influences, Slow Boat Home is an eclectic bunch. Jim Kweskin, Bonnie Raitt, Bessie Smith, Lee Dorsey, Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonzy, Toots & the Maytals, Jerry Douglas and many more supply musical inspiration.
First Church and Parish Dedham Unitarian Universalist was first gathered in 1638 and is located in Dedham Center at 670 High Street. Its lively music program includes its choir at Sunday services, the Parish Players theater troupe, and the Concerts at First Church concert series in addition to our Friday Coffee House events.
