Dana and Susan Robinson 

In Concert at the Cabot Town Hall Auditorium
Friday, March 1st 7pm
3084 Main Street in Cabot, Vermont
$16 Adv. / $20 at the door
For info: 802-793-3016
Dana & Susan Robinson’s WEBSITE – http://www.robinsongs.com
From Cabot, Vermont – Americana-roots and folk duo, Dana and Susan Robinson will be celebrating the release of their new recording, The Town That Music Saved. Dana and Sue will be accompanied by their band, including Mitch Barron: bass, Lee Blackwell: drums and Katie Trautz: fiddle. Supported by a Creation Grant awarded by the Vermont Arts Council, The Town That Music Saved is a celebration of Vermont’s unique spirit and identity.
Dana and Susan combine vivid, songwriting and storytelling, with fiddle tunes, banjo grooves, elegant melodies, and rich harmony singing. Their compositions have been featured in Ken Burns’s “The National Parks, America’s Best Idea” and “The Dust Bowl.”
Drawing upon experiences of more than twenty years of touring, Dana and Susan craft a performance that conveys the mystery and wonders of their journey. Their unique blend of original songwriting and traditional Appalachian music, bring to their performances a deep understanding of America’s musical heritage.
A native of the Pacific Northwest, Dana relocated to New England where he discovered both a thriving songwriters scene and the deep well of traditional mountain music. In the early 1980s, Dana settled in northern Vermont and built a house “off the grid” on 30 acres near the Canadian border. There he founded a popular bakery, café and music venue. Dana launched into full-time touring after the release of his 1994 debut CD, Elemental Lullabye, and after receiving a request to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City for Putumayo’s Shelter benefit project.
Susan grew up with her dad’s jazz big band rehearsing in the basement in Manchester, Vermont and learned classical piano as a child. As an adult she turned to oboe and Scottish fiddle. After Susan and Dana met in 2002, she took up old-time banjo and learned from the banjo-greats in and around Asheville, North Carolina. Since 2003 Dana and Susan have performed hundreds of concerts across the United States, Great Britain and Canada.

Cyrille Aimée: A Sondheim Adventure

Friday, March 8 at 7pm

Acclaimed vocalist Cyrille Aimée’s Sondheim Adventure began in 2013, when she was invited to participate in a tribute concert for the Broadway legend at New York’s City Center, co-starring with Bernadette Peters and backed by Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Her show-stealing performance was widely praised, but the most memorable compliment came from the composer himself. “You made me cry,” Sondheim told Aimée backstage after opening night. “That was pretty powerful,” Aimée recalls with a touch of understatement.

While its narrative arc is a self-contained story, Move On: A Sondheim Adventure is just the beginning of a new chapter in Aimée’s remarkable journey. It’s the French-born singer’s first release since disbanding the acclaimed band she’s led for the last several years, to which she bid a fond adieu on her last album, Cyrille Aimée Live. It’s also her first since moving from Brooklyn to New Orleans, the latest music-rich city that she’s been able to call home.

Join us in Stowe to hear Cyrille Aimée bring this musical journey to you on Friday, March 8 at 7pm at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, 122 Hourglass Dr., Stowe

$25–45

To purchase tickets visit SprucePeakArts.org or call 802.760.4634.

Vermont Virtuosi: "Neighbors"

Neighbors,” Vermont Virtuosi’s first concert of 2019, reveals how the stylistically diverse works of three Vermont composers are simultaneously musical neighbors to one other. Louis Moyse’s First Flute Sonata is imbued with a neoclassicial lyricism, while Allen Shawn’s Three Nightscapes inhabits a jazz-tinged dream world. And Thomas L. Read’s Neighbors (a world premiere) uses silences to enrich his musical dialogue between clarinet and piano. Three deliciously exuberant Slavonic Dances of Antonín Dvořák end the program.

The concerts will take place in two locations:

Saturday, March 9, 2019, 4:00 p.m., Unitarian Church, 130 Main Street, Montpelier

Sunday, March 10, 2019, 4:00 p.m., First Baptist Church, 81 St. Paul Street, Burlington
