Dean Stevens and Friends:Celebration of Dean's Sixth CD, "Arise!" w Ritt Henn, Rob Flax, Eric Kilburn, John and Rachel Nicholas, David Dodson

For decades, Dean Stevens has delighted audiences of all ages throughout Roslindale and the Americas. An exuberant performer of distinctive style and wit, he combines an intricate, self-taught guitar style with a versatile and expressive singing voice. He has established himself as a formidable creator and interpreter of a wide spectrum of songs in English and Spanish. His own material explores a variety of personal and social topics, paints sketches of people and places, celebrates the Earth, and annoys the narrow minded. Born and raised in Costa Rica, Dean Stevens is a lifelong student of Latin America. He learned Spanish at an early age, and readily absorbed the musical and topical influences of the region. He travels frequently to Central America, and has become known for his humanitarian efforts on behalf of refugees returning to their homes in El Salvador and Guatemala. Dean Stevens has six highly acclaimed recordings to his credit. His brand new release, "Arise!"" (Volcano Records), is a collection of songs in English and Spanish, with guest appearances by Ritt Henn, Kevin Barry, Cindy Kallet, Grey Larsen, Eric Kilburn, Randy Sabien, Rob Flax, David Dodson, and too many others to name here.... "Dean Stevens; remember that name; we'll be hearing a lot more from him. Deans Stevens will inspire you. Great voice!! ~~Pete Seeger * "Seeing and hearing Dean Stevens live on stage is proof that sanity, literacy, love, hope, and the forces of good are still alive and well and at work in the universe. Every song is offered with immediacy, humanity, and humor underscored by the most articulate and inspired guitar work you'll hear anywhere on the topical folk circuit. His powerful anthem to natural cycles, Salmon, and well-chosen covers, particularly David Dodson's brilliant indictment of our fossil fuel addiction, Gasoline, will convince you that you are in the presence of a thinking and compassionate master communicator at the peak of his powers. Losing your faith? Go to a Dean Stevens concert!" ~~ GeoffBartley * "Powerful...moving political performer" ~~ Boston Globe * "A performer with keen vision, tenacity and wisdom to inspire and to entertain" ~~ Dirty Linen * "Dean Stevens is a charming entertainer, a musician of great sensitivity and wit. His spirit of joy and sharing shines through his music." ~~Jerry Christen, New Song Coffeehouse * "Dean Stevens is such a consummate musician and singer, such an easy guy to be around that it's easy to forget what a great songwriter he is..a sunny guy with a wicked wit, a killer guitar player,a first quality player and a first quality human being." ~~Bob Franke

About Watertown, MA
Watertown Massachusetts was founded in 1603 and was one of America's largest settlements in that time. Watertown quickly became an important center for trade, commerce and industry.

Watertown once served as the temporary seat of government during the Revolutionary War. Paul Revere, who once resided in Watertown actually printed the first money for the Province of Massachusetts here.

Canvas sails for the U.S.S. Constitution were woven here at the old Bemis Mills and the renowned Stanley Steamers and the black Crawford stoves were manufactured in Watertown. Just outside of Watertown Square on Mt. Auburn Street is where the first Star Market store was opened.

Watertown is strategically located just 6 miles northwest of Boston and has easy access to all major highways in eastern Massachusetts. Providing an extensive public transportation system that includes rail and bus lines which provide access to the Logan International Airport and the world.

On April 19, 2013 the whole world was watching Watertown, MA as the Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev was arrested after a day long manhunt that shut down the City of Boston and the surrounding towns while law enforcement went door to door searching for the suspect. It ended when a resident on Franklin Street reported that they found bloody evidence that the suspect was hiding in a boat parked in the back yard of the home.
