Summit School Trad Camp

Summit School Trad Camp

The Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture presents Trad Camp 2019 July 15-19! This week-long music immersion camp is perfect for kids 8-16 years old who either have a newfound interest in music, or a deep interest in furthering musicianship. Classes range from Beginner to Advanced on a variety of instruments including fiddle, guitar, ukulele, drums, songwriting, voice, and more. Budding musicians enjoy developing technique and skill on instruments they know, but are also encouraged to try something new. Our instructors are first class, recognized for both the quality of their teaching, and their performance skills.

The Trad Camp day begins at 9am with a group song or short performance, then students disperse into their different chosen classes. Mid-day lunch break includes ample time outside on the beautiful Orchard Valley Waldorf School campus in East Montpelier. Afternoon class choices include an ensemble option, where students can experience playing in a group and arranging music together. For campers who want to spend some time practicing or trying their hand at an art activity, there will always be time reserved at the end of the day. Pick-up is at 3pm, with an option for Stay and Play to accommodate longer work days. The Summit School has presented this camp for many years, and after taking one year off, has decided to offer it once again. The camp’s director, Katie Trautz, is thrilled to give children and teens an opportunity to explore music and deepen their interest in the arts.

Music by the River - Early Risers: Ashley Storrow and Putnam Smith in Woodstock

Music by the River - Early Risers: Ashley Storrow and Putnam Smith in Woodstock

Acoustic Folk
​​​​​​​We started as separate songwriters, drawn to each other’s music. We’d occasionally back each other up with vocal harmonies or some guitar or banjo accompaniment. Through playing shows and touring, our sound and style has grown into something new and entirely its own. Our new songs, especially, have been crafted with a new synergy. At some point we decided to stop referring to this new sound as simply “Ashley Storrow & Putnam Smith,” and we became The Early Risers.

Nathan Evans Fox and Jane Kramer to co-headline at Brandon Music

Nathan Evans Fox and Jane Kramer to co-headline at Brandon Music

Brandon Music is delighted to welcome Nathan Evans Fox and Jane Kramer to Brandon Music Friday July 19th at 7:30pm. Fox and Kramer are both highly regarded singer songwriters from North Carolina who frequently perform individually and with other artists but for this American tour have come together to co-headline a special night of Americana Folk with a North Carolina overlay. They will be playing together and separately.

Nathan Evans Fox is an Americana songwriter and musician from Glen Alpine, NC. Growing up immersed in country, rock, bluegrass, and hymns, Fox synthesizes his musical roots to produce a sound all his own. He has been writing music, playing fiddle and guitar, and collaborating with other musicians for over ten years. Fox’s lyrics confront the difficulties of his cultural and religious heritage with quiet grief, incisive anger, and an unexpected wit. Above all, he is a storyteller whose narrative landscapes are at once familiar and strange. He has written, produced, and performed two full-length albums: Home (2017) and most recently Texas Dust, which was released in April 2018. Fox is based in Atlanta, where he lives with his best friend/wife Elizabeth and their dog Maisie.

Asheville-based Jane Kramer was described by a UK music reviewer in Three Chords and the Truth as sounding like she was “…born to gypsy poets and raised by Emmylou Harris.” With deep roots in Appalachian musical traditions, culture, and lore, Kramer’s songs are introspective and gracefully gritty. Her performances are poignant and engaging, accessible, warm, and often hilarious. Her third album, Valley of The Bones, was released this March 2019.

“Jane Kramer embraces songwriting that runs through a gamut of emotions, with heartache, regret, fear, and hope resounding deeply in her eloquent lyrics, and each tune is delivered with a voice that only be described as one of the purest in modern Americana.”
- David Stallard, Blue Ridge Outdoors

The Stockwell Brothers at Wardsboro Town Hall

The Stockwell Brothers at Wardsboro Town Hall

Bluegrass comes to Wardsboro on Saturday, July 20, as the Stockwell Brothers perform on Saturday, July 20 as part of Wardsboro Curtain Call’s 2018 Music Series. Bruce, Barry and Alan Stockwell's 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. “Tasty arrangements; brotherly harmonies, perfectly blended instruments, and great songs.” – Music Revue. http://www.stockwellbrothers.com/

All shows are in the Wardsboro Town Hall Café, Main Street, Wardsboro, and feature excellent refreshments and BYOB. Doors open at 6:30, music begins at 7 pm. Admission is $10 at the door. For more information, email kwkmdavis@yahoo.com or call 802-896-6810.

Judy Collins

Judy Collins

Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Few singers have the staying power of folk icon, Judy Collins. For nearly 45 illustrious years, her dulcet tones have graced our ears, and her poetic lyrics have galvanized a generation. She has released more than 40 albums, has had numerous Top 10 hits, Grammy nominations and gold and platinum selling albums.

Judy Collins is as creatively vigorous as ever, writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. Judy Collins continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.
