The Campbell Brothers

Chandler Music Hall
71-73 Main Street
Randolph, VT
Friday, February 1, 7:30 pm
THE CAMPBELL BROTHERS
The Campbell Brothers mine a rich vein of music from the African-American gospel repertoire, albeit with a rollicking twist: the growling, wailing, shouting, singing, swinging voice of the steel guitar as you’ve never heard it before. Pedal steel guitar master Chuck Campbell a National Heritage Fellowship award winner for his contributions to preserving the legacy of African-American music — and his lap steel-playing brother Darick are two of the finest exponents of this vital but little-known tradition, rooted in the sacred spaces of the House of God Church, where steel guitars long ago replaced the organ as the primary means of “playing the word.” One listen and you’ll understand why Real Blues magazine calls Chuck Campbell “the Jimi Hendrix and the Django Reinhardt of the pedal steel guitar.”
Reserved seating: $25-$35

Chelsea Berry

Feb. 2, 7:30 pm

Chelsea Berry is a singer-songwriter with the edge, power, and finesse of legends. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” As a vocalist and performer, she evokes the style of artists such as Cheryl Crow, Eva Cassidy, KD Lang, and Melissa Etheridge.

Singer-songwriter Livingston Taylor calls her vocals “world class” and says of Berry, “A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast and firm favorite of Brandon Music audiences, , Berry’s beautiful voice and commanding stage presence has brought her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston and others as well as headliner of her own shows. Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home in NYC.

Her music transcends its indie rock roots and touches listeners with its poetic lyric, bold melodies, and pure, clear, powerful vocals. Singer/songwriter Chris Smither says Berry is “Great, talented, beautiful … her future is so bright you’re gonna have to wear shades.”

Berry has appeared on the cover of Boston magazines such as The Noise and Northshore Magazine. She has been featured multiple times on Boston’s 92.5 The River and Sirius XM’s The Loft as well as dozens of local stations from Maine to Florida. She has played Boston’s House of Blues, Carnegie Hall in New York City, the Shalin Liu in Rockport, MA, Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, World Cafe Live in Philadelphia and more. She has opened for many artists such as Chris Isaak, Mavis Staples, Belinda Carlisle, Roger McGuinn, and Tom Chapin.

Berry was a 2016 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist and has been a student of American songwriting legends such as Dave Van Ronk, Janis Ian, Susan Werner, and Ellis Paul.

Berry’s newest full length album, “Wanderbird”, was released this September.  It was recorded, mixed, and mastered in NYC with producer Adam Rhodes.  The instrumentation and arrangements are a mindful and energetic extension of Berry’s own music and performance.

Concert at 7:30pm. Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert diner is available for $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for shows. Venue is BYOB.

Call 802 247 4295 or e-mail info@brandon-music.net for reservations or for more information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon, VT 05733 www.brandon-music.net.

Scrag Mountain Music presents Musical Storytelling for All Ages

Concerts:
  • Sat., Feb. 9, 2019 at 10 am @ Bread & Butter Farm, 200 Leduc Farm Rd., Shelburne, VT (Co-presented with Bread & Butter Farm)
  • Sat., Feb. 9, 2019 at 4 pm @ Lost Nation Theater / City Hall Auditorium Arts Center, 39 Main St., Montpelier, VT (Co-presented with Lost Nation Theater)
  • Sun., Feb. 10, 2019 at 4 pm @ Middlebury Community Music Center, 6 Main St., Middlebury, VT (Co-presented with Middlebury Community Music Center)
Scrag Mountain Music’s 2018-19 season continues with a delightful program of music inspired by popular tales. In Musical Storytelling for All Ages, Scrag co-Artistic Directors Evan Premo (double bass) and Mary Bonhag (soprano), will be joined by the award-winning Aeolus Quartet and acclaimed Montpelier-based theater artist Kim Bent (narrator) for concerts that showcase how chamber music can bring our most memorable storybook fables to life. This program is appropriate and entertaining all ages 0-100.
Musical Storytelling for All Ages features four dynamic pieces of music all inspired by stories. The concert’s centerpiece presentation, Jon Deak’s The Ugly Duckling (“…a piece of music both accessible and intelligent, hilarious and touching, and — best of all — one that appeals to adults, children and poultry lovers alike. – The Washington Post), performed by string quartet, double bass, and soprano, takes the listener on a complex aural journey highlighting the many sounds, characters, and emotions found within this beloved Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. Also included in the program is James Balentine’s version of the Norwegian folktale Three Billy Goats Gruff, performed by string quintet and narrator, which introduces the string family of instruments as the three billy goats attempt to cross a bridge manned by a hungry troll. Jon Deak’s B.B. Wolf: An Apologia is a humorous and virtuosic piece for solo double bassist/narrator that makes a case for re-thinking the much maligned wolf as is so often portrayed throughout human history and literature. Departing from the world of fairy tales, the program includes Scrag Mountain Music co-Artistic Director Evan Premo’s composition Oday Daywayigun for string quintet inspired by the Ojibwe creation legend.
All concerts are “Come as you are. Pay what you can.” with at-will donations collected at intermission. Securing your seats in advance at www.scragmountainmusic.org is encouraged as space is limited.

Melissa D

Feb. 9, 7:30 pm

Brandon Music

Singer/songwriter Melissa D began her singing career as a painfully shy six year old in a southern Vermont church where in those moments that quietness fell away and revealed a genuinely beautiful voice that immediately set her apart from the rest.  It took years of personal growth to shake her inner demons and move forward to pursue her music dreams but she persevered and achieved her goal.

Although classically trained, Melissa fell in love with Rock and Roll and later became front-woman for The Alley Katz and also a member of CHILL, an acoustic act.  She currently performs as an Americana folk/rock solo artist who from time to time dips her toe into Country.  Her music is relaxing with reflective lyrics that take you on an emotional journey.

Melissa D performs with Phil Henry, award winning singer-songwriter from Rutland VT, on guitar and special guest Steve Latanision of Merrimack N.H., a stellar multi-instrumentalist and graduate of Berklee College of Music.

Concert at 7:30pm.  Concert tickets are $20.  A pre-concert dinner is available for $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show.  Venue is BYOB.   Call (802) 247 4295 or email info@brandon-music.net for reservations or for more information.  Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon, Vermont 05733 www.brandon-music.net.

Monteverdi Music School Chamber Music Soirées

On Friday, February 22nd, Monteverdi Music School presents the next in a remarkable series of house concerts. Hosted by Monteverdi faculty member Chris Stork, this is a fabulous opportunity to hear chamber music in one of Monteverdi Music School’s most relaxing settings: the chapel, a room replete with stained glass windows, where years of meditation by devout nuns has created an inspiring space for music.

This chamber music soirée features the music of composers from five centuries, including a violin sonata in C major by J. S. Bach, whose compositions for solo instruments almost invariably sound like they must have been intended for ensembles; Niccolo Paganini’s truly capricious, Caprice Op.1 No.2; a twentieth century Cadenza for Viola by Krzysztof Penderecki, the world premiere of Dancing in the Meadows by George Milne; and the 1919 Sonata for Viola and Piano by Rebecca Clarke.

The internationally seasoned players include Central Vermont’s ubiquitous Alison Bruce Cerutti on piano, Benjamin Jacob Lombordozzi Kronk, violin and Canadian, Elizabeth Reid playing viola.

Friday, February 22nd, 7:00pm
Monteverdi Music School, Room 200

Monteverdi is located in the Center for Arts and Learning building at 46 Barre St. in Montpelier, VT.

Richard Ruane and Beth Duquette

Ruane and Duquette, Tammie award winners for Best Folk Album 2019, at Brandon Music Feb 23.

Richard Ruane and Beth Duquette are a Vermont-based acoustic duo performing original music with a clear traditional-roots influence that is steeped in tradition, but of its own time. They are known for their strong, imaginative vocals and harmonies, often compared to classic sibling harmony duos. Some of their original songs harken back to traditional ballads and jazz tunes from the 30’s, but also remain firmly planted in life’s current challenges and joy.  Ruane sings and provides inventive instrumental backing on guitar, tenor guitar, mandolin and ukulele, while Duquette contributes inspired lead and harmony vocals.   Ruane and Duquette perform with a comfortable ease and audience rapport that comes from many years of collaboration and love of creating music together.

This event is a part of Vermont Arts 2019, celebrating arts in Vermont.

Concert begins at 7:30pm. Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for $25.  Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show.Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 247-4295 or e-mail info@brandon-music.net for reservations or for more information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Rd. Brandon, VT 05733 www.brandon-music.net
