Sky Blue Boys performing at the Old Firehouse on Friday, June 2 @ 7:30 pm

June 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Sky Blue Boys Return to Tinmouth’s Old Firehouse

The Sky Blue Boys, long time favorites of the enthusiastic crowds at the Old Firehouse, have revived the tradition of “brothers duets”. They have built up a large repertoire of wonderful old ballads, parlor songs, heart songs and sacred numbers. Heeding their own musical instincts they have expanded the accompaniment to include a variety of acoustic instruments and added many newer songs including several of their own compositions.

Willy and Dan have played together for decades. They formed the celebrated Vermont bluegrass band Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys in 1972. But never far from their hearts were the sounds they learned to love long ago – the simple moving sounds of the early “brothers duets.”

The Sky Blue Boys will be the fifth and final concert in the Spring Series at the Old Firehouse, at 7:30 on June 2.

The Tinmouth Old Firehouse Crew is made up of eight Tinmouth volunteers who do everything from sweeping floors to writing the publicity. That’s why 90% of the donations go to the performers, with 10% to the Town of Tinmouth towards the cost of maintaining the Old Firehouse. Our regular folks know that we raffle off two free tickets for any future concert every time.

All concerts are on Friday nights at 7:30 PM in Tinmouth village. Doors open at 7 PM. The Old Firehouse is on Mountain View Road just a couple of hundred feet south of the intersection with Vermont 140. Suggested donation of $10 to $15; 90% to the musicians; 10% to the Town. Local groups provide refreshments. Your donations support their activities.
