The Brattleboro Reformer presents the first of four festivals in our Summer Concert Series. At each concert they will be collecting food donations for the Vermont Foodbank!
Headliner: Jordan Tice & Horse County
Jordan Tice is a singular voice on the American roots music scene. The band on “Horse County” is also top-notch and includes such first call players as Paul Kowert (Punch Brothers) on bass, Dominick Leslie (The Deadly Gentlemen) on mandolin, Mike Witcher (Peter Rowan) on dobro, Brittany Haas (Crooked Still) and Shad Cobb on fiddles, and Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers) on banjo. The record was recorded by guitarist Chris Eldridge who also, along with Jordan, co-produced the session.
Other bands in the line-up will include:
The Stockwell Brothers – The Stockwell Brothers are Green Mountain Newgrass artists. Their music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic sound features new singer/songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms and three-part harmonies. They cover straight ahead bluegrass songs, finger picked acoustic guitar ballads, full tilt breakdowns and traditional mandolin tunes mixed in with more unusual fare – Americana melodies riding world beat grooves and Celtic, jazzy, even neo-classical instrumentals.
Pinedrop – Pinedrop’s fresh Americana sound skillfully intertwines folk and bluegrass. This four-piece band from Brattleboro, Vermont features Derek Sensale’s mesmerizing songwriting and vocals, Dan Bisson on upright bass, Nick Paar on mandolin and Charlie Peckar on fiddle. Pinedrop has played venues and festivals near and far, including MASS MoCA’s acclaimed FreshGrass Festival.
