Big Woods Voices in concert at the Old Firehouse
October 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Big Woods Voices unites four veteran Vermont singers from the Brattleboro area in celebrating their common passion for a cappella harmony: Alan Blood, Will Danforth, singer-songwriter, traditional acoustic artist, and the group’s arranger/composer; Becky Graber, and Amanda Witman, They marry singing traditions from around the world with various American roots genres. They concoct original compositions and arrangements in which harmony and dissonance dance in riveting yet accessible soundscapes.
Imagine lyrical settings of poetry by David Whyte, Mary Oliver, W. B. Yeats, and others; richly-harmonized standards of the American roots lexicon; and completely original compositions. Add to that gems by musicians such as Pete Sutherland, The Finest Kind, and the Stanley Brothers, and you have the ear-thrilling experience called Big Woods Voices.
All concerts are at 7:30 on a Friday night; doors open at 7:00. Coffee and tea will be hot soon after the doors open; refreshments available as well. Donation for the concert is $10-15. 90% goes to the musicians; 10% to the down for maintenance of the Old Firehouse. Donations for the refreshments go to support local projects. The Old Firehouse is at 9 Mountain View Road at the intersection of Vermont 140 and Mountain View Road in the heart of downtown Tinmouth.
