House Blend performs at the Old Firehouse
May 27, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 pm
House Blend is an assembly of 20 veteran singers from Vermont and New Hampshire, devoted to the collective exploration of the many styles of mostly a cappella singing from around the world and throughout musical history. They’ll fill the little stage at Tinmouth’s Old Firehouse on Friday, May 27 starting at 7:30. They have visited us several times before, filling the house with excited fans every time.
A democratically-governed party of self-professed singing addicts, the “Blenders” look to the artistic direction of all of its members rather than a single director, Coming together from differing walks of life undoubtedly influences the creative energy of this ensemble. Their occupations range from teachers to a web designer, from an airline pilot to a carpenter. The infectious welcoming energy of House Blend engages the audience with a passion for the music they sing. Their repertoire includes early music, contemporary arrangements by local composers, songs from American folk traditions such as spirituals, soulful gospel songs, hill songs from Appalachia; village music from many countries, and anything else the singers choose to add to the mix.
All concerts are on Friday nights at 7:30 PM in Tinmouth village. The Old Firehouse is on Mountain View Road just a few hundred feet south of the intersection with Vermont 140. Park on the road or on the Town Green in front of the church. Suggested donation of $10; 90% goes to the musicians. 10% goes to the Town to support maintenance of the Old Firehouse. Local groups provide refreshments. Your donations support their activities.
