Originally born and raised in Springfield, MA., Dave and Hope Fontaine are a husband and wife acoustic duo. Their music is a diverse blend of styles and includes an eclectic mix of covers from artists including Maria Muldar, Joannie Mitchell, Adele, Fleetwood Mac, America, Jewel, Cranberries, Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Steve Miller Band, Fuel, Amy Lee and more, in addition to a number of originals spanning from Spanish/Latin flavored instrumentals to a folk rock and Americana style that blend well with the artists that they cover!
Dave has been playing guitar since the age of 14 and is an accomplished guitarist and song writer. He has been featured as the lead guitarist in numerous performing rock bands since the age of 16 and is influenced by many great guitarists including Joe Perry, Jimmy Page, Randy Rhoads, Eddie Van Halen, Al DiMeola, Alex Lifeson and most recently Gypsy Jazz guitarist Django Rheinhart.
Hope Fontaine is a classically trained singer with powerful vocals and is inspired by artists including Stevie Nicks, Adele, Annie Lennox and Joannie Mitchell. Her 1st live performance was with Dave on a local radio show in Easthampton, MA. called “The Toast and Jam Café” on the strength of a demo submitted to the radio station. The Two Fontaines (formerly known as Fanaticus) was formed shortly thereafter in 2014 and have been performing ever since in MA, Charleston, SC and most recently in their new home – Asheville, NC!
We hope you will join us on Sunday, July 7th. Grab a cold pint of your favorite hard cider and come listen to the eclectic mix that Dave and Hope have planned for you!
