The Sky Blue Boys – Banjo Dan and his brother Willy at the Old Firehouse
September 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Sky Blue Boys, long time favorites of the enthusiastic crowds at the Old Firehouse, have revived the tradition of “brothers duets” from the 30’s and 40’s. Two fellows with a mandolin and a banjo, a musical teamwork built of habit, their voices fused in the special blend produced by kinship.
Willy and Dan have built up a large repertoire of wonderful old ballads, parlor songs, heart songs, songs about Vermont history, 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.
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.
