Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves

Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves
Description:

Presented by Young Tradition Vermont and the Burlington Violin Shop. $20 suggested donation. Limited seating. Reservations recommended at mark.sustic@gmail.com.

Allison and Tatiana brings together two women on the forefront of American traditional acoustic music. In this new duo, clawhammer banjo innovator Allison de Groot (Molsky’s Mountain Drifters) and fiddler Tatiana Hargreaves (Laurie Lewis, Dave Rawlings Machine) join forces to explore the boundaries of Appalachian stringband music. Having both studied with musicians such as Bruce Molsky and Darol Anger in addition to more traditional masters, Allison and Tatiana share a musical vocabulary that reflects on tradition while also utilizing new techniques and sounds.

Allison has toured all over the world with various groups, performing at venues such as Trafalgar Square in London, Newport Folk Festival and other major festivals across the US and Canada. She combines love and passion for old-time music, technical skill and a creative approach to the banjo. Allison has immersed herself in American roots music through festivals such as the Appalachian String Band Festival in West Virginia, making pilgrimages to musical communities in North Carolina and participating in the acoustic music scene in Boston, MA.

Since releasing her first solo album “Started Out To Ramble” in 2009 (produced by Bruce Molsky and featuring Sarah Jarosz, Mark Schatz, Alex Hargreaves, and more), Tatiana has toured with musicians from Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch, to Laurie Lewis, and Darol Anger. From being the second woman to place first at the Clifftop Appalachian Fiddle Contest in 2009 to her 2012 and 2013 participation in the Acoustic Music Seminar in Savannah Georgia, Tatiana is dedicated to respecting and preserving oldtime and bluegrass traditions while simultaneously seeking her own musical voice and approaching these styles in new ways.

Julia Mark to perform at Brandon Music

Julia Mark to perform at Brandon Music Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

"I have literally seen people's breath taken away when they first hear Julia Mark,” says Jay Ottaway, with the Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival. Julia Mark is a singer-songwriter and pianist of jazz-inflected folk/pop but her songs are unique in their subjects. She writes lyric-driven, optimistically dissonant songs about life on the moon, loss of memory, shifting homes, and palindromes. With the songwriting penchant of Carole King and the soft-easy vocals of Suzanne Vega, Mark is for the listener who likes to transcend into a musical and visual scene. Show $20. Dinner & show $45. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. BYOB.

Time: 3/10/18 7:30pm - 9:30pm

"These lads (and one lady harpist) make an impressive noise. - Folk World

Since forming in 2013 Skipper’s Alley have garnered wide critical praise, appeared on national and international TV, and toured on four continents. Write-ups include The Irish Times (4 stars), The Living Tradition, Folk Radio UK, Folk World, and Celtic Music Radio (5 stars). TV appearances include S4C’s ‘Lorient’ as well as RTÉs ‘Fleadh!’ and The Late Late Show. Festival appearances include Electric Picnic (Ireland), Festival Interceltique de Lorient (France), The Stan Rogers Folk Festival (Canada), Spring Fest (India) and The Dayton Ohio Irish Fest (USA).

In 2014, Skipper’s Alley’s released their self-titled debut album under the production of Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa, The Waterboys, Sharon Shannon). To date the record has received wide critical acclaim and sold out several repressings. They are currently touring regularly in North America and are hard at work on a second album due for release in late 2017.
