21st Annual Folk Concert with Deb Flanders, Pete’s Posse, Jane Oxnard, John Dunlop & Laura Markowitz

21 July 2019
4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Old West Church

The 21st Annual Folk Music Concert celebrates master folk musician Pete Sutherland and his Posse, Vermont’s own trad-roots power trio! Composed of acclaimed musician Pete, his talented protégé Oliver Scanlon and the uber-dynamic Tristan Henderson, Pete’s Posse never fails to surprise and excite! Twin fiddles in tight, wild harmony over high-powered guitar and pounding foot percussion with mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jaw harp, rocking keyboards, and soaring vocal harmonies adding color to the Posse’s sonic landscape. Joining Deb and Pete are fiddler Jane Oxnard, native of Northumberland, England, VSO cellist John Dunlop and violin/fiddler Laura Markowitz.

General admission is $20 at the door. $5 for kids 18 and younger.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Vermont Folklife Center.

The annual folk concert has been organized by singer Deb Flanders in honor of her great-aunt Helen Hartness Flanders, an internationally recognized ballad collector and authority on folk music found in New England and in the British Isles.
