Ali McGuirk

Ali McGuirk

The Spruce Peak Arts Winter Concert series brings seven live performances back to Stowe! The series includes options for limited, safe, in-person attendance, as well as livestreaming.

Join us on Saturday, January 23 for Ali McGuirk! Ali commands the room with her dynamic voice and heartfelt songwriting. Blending classic soul power with folk songwriter lyricism, Ali has the rare ability to silence a room with just a few words of a song. With a vocal style rooted deeply in improvisation, her sets are a hypnotic and intimate emotional journey.

Her debut album, Slow Burn earned her recognition as one of New England’s most compelling artists and Ali has been bringing her music to national audiences ever since, leading her award winning band, serenading solo with her electric guitar and finding inspiration in unexpected collaborations.

In the event that VT guidance shifts to restrict in-person attendance, existing in-person tickets will be changed to livestream. In-person ticketholders will have the option of a credit, refund, or making a donation with the remainder. Thank you for your support of musicians and other performing artists to keep the arts alive!

Let's Tango!

Let's Tango!

This event is in partnership with the Jewish Community Organization of Greater Stowe.

A concert not to be missed, Let’s Tango! will showcase Boston based Duo Cello e Basso and pianist Victor Cayres. The trio will perform their own arrangements of the music of Piazzolla and Gardel, with favorites such as El día que me quieras, Por una cabeza, as well as lesser known works such as Kicho, a virtuoso piece dedicated to Enrique Kicho Díaz, the double bass player in Piazzolla’s band. Celebrated works, such as Le Grand Tango, dedicated to Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, and Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas, also known as The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, will also be featured. The trio has recorded these arrangements for a CD scheduled to be released in the Spring/Summer 2021.

This concert, generously sponsored by Deborah and Ron Feinstein, will be livestreamed from Boston’s own state-of-the-art Futura Productions recording studio on January 28th, at 7PM Eastern Time. Admission is free but a ticket reservation is required to receive the link to the program.

Bow Thayer

Bow Thayer

The Spruce Peak Arts Winter Concert series brings seven live performances back to Stowe! The series includes options for limited, safe, in-person attendance, as well as livestreaming.

Join us on Saturday, February 20 for Bow Thayer! Bow will be releasing a new album written over the course of the Covid pandemic and recorded at his Central Vermont studio, “The Woodshed”. Thayer’s playing makes up the lion’s share of tracks, but the recording also features long-time drummer Jeff Berlin and Boston bass staple Jeremy Dryden, both of whom will be joining Thayer for the Spruce Peak show. Other guests providing tracks remotely from the left coast include Chris McGandy (Perfect Trainwreck) on pedal steel and Val McCallum (Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams, Bonnie Raitt) on guitar. The show will cover most of the new album as well as some old favorites. It is hard to say what will really conspire on the night of February 20 but expect Thayer, Dryden and Berlin to rattle the walls of this beautiful and spacious room. As always, Thayer will incorporate multiple unique instruments into the set with fresh songs that depict a look of humanity observed from the “green bubble” of Vermont. Sometimes groovy, sometimes dissonant, often thought-provoking and ultimately positive.

In the event that VT guidance shifts to restrict in-person attendance, existing in-person tickets will be changed to livestream. In-person ticketholders will have the option of a credit, refund, or making a donation with the remainder. Thank you for your support of musicians and other performing artists to keep the arts alive!

” Beg, Steal or Borrow have managed to absorb their essential influences — Appalachian, folk and country sounds in particular — and refashion them in a way that’s so accessible and infectious that the music’s all but irresistible.” Lee Zimmerman – Bluegrass Today

“The songs that found their way onto the new record are more than mere imitation — they’re the genuine article.” Dan Bolles – Seven Days Review

“The first CD released by bluegrassers Beg, Steal or Borrow, “Old Mountain Time,” could contend for best bluegrass album of 2019, it’s that good.” Art Edelstein – Times Argus | Rutland Herald Review

“Raw yet still devastatingly beautiful.” – Candace McDuffie, Vanyaland
