DaddyLongLegs

Town Hall Concert Series

Wednesday, October 24th – A bluegrass trio, DaddyLongLegs, will be performing at Wallingford Town Hall on Wednesday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m. The band features three of Vermont’s finest acoustic players. Violinist David Gusakov was a member of Burlington’s progressive bluegrass pioneers Pine Island in the late 1970s and now performs with gypsy-jazz outfit Swing Noire. Banjo specialist Rick Ceballos and multi-instrumentalist Matt Witten are well known in Vermont traditional, old-time and bluegrass circles. The group performed at the Tinmouth Old Firehouse Concert series and more recently at the Brandon concert series. DaddyLongLegs will be the first in a series of Town Hall concerts. Suggested donations of $10 to $15 at the door.

Wednesday, December 12th – Bells of Joy directed by Karen James will perform as part of the Wallingford Town Hall Concert series on Wednesday, December 12 at 7:00 p.m. Please mark your calendar to save that date for this wonderful holiday concert. Suggested donations of $10 to $15 at the door.

Wednesday, January 9th – The Sky Blue Boys, a duo comprised of Willy and Dan Lidner, will perform at Wallingford Town Hall on Wednesday, January 9th at 7:00 p.m.. The duo has built up a large repertoire of wonderful old ballads, parlor songs, heart songs and sacred numbers. Heeding their own musical instincts, The Sky Blue Boys 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 and have toured and recorded extensively in that context, as well as sitting in on shows and recording sessions for many of the region’s top acoustic musicians. But never far from their hearts were the sounds they learned to love long ago – the simple moving sounds of the early “brothers duets.” Suggested donations of $10 to $15 at the door.

Wednesday, March 13th – Extra Stout, the Green Mountains of Vermont’s Rutland County is a traditional Irish band that has been playing together for upwards of twenty years.  They bring all of the variety that Irish music has to offer from raucous drinking songs to ballads of home and county; from slow and haunting airs to rocking reels, jigs and polkas. Suggested donations of $10 to $15 at the door.
