Pete’s Posse

7 February 2020
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Palmer Street Coffeehouse

High-energy fiddle, guitar and vocals are in store for the Palmer Street crowd as the Vermont-based traditional-roots trio Pete’s Posse takes the stage at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s coffeehouse 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7.

Musicians Pete Sutherland, Oliver Scanlon and Tristan Henderson make up the neo-traditional folk group, which combines new bluegrass with the classics. All play multiple instruments, their music often featuring twin fiddles in tight, wild harmony over high-powered guitar and pounding percussion. Mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jaw harp and keyboards join forces to add color to the group’s sonic landscape.

Audiences can expect a “kaleidscope of sounds and style with equal parts amiability and energy,” according to the Boston Irish Reporter.

Members have racked up more than 150,000 miles, playing at various festivals, including the Shetland Folk Festival, Festival Memoire et Racine, and New Bedford Folk Festival. They’ve also produced five albums, including the latest, “Fruit Fly Blues.”

Plattsburgh’s Palmer Street Coffeehouse, now in its 32nd season, hosts acoustic acts every first Friday of the month, October through June at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 4 Palmer St. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10. Refreshments will be available.
