Charlie Parr At Higher Ground

Charlie Parr
Higher Ground, Showcase Lounge
South Burlington, VT
July 27, 2018

Charlie Parr was downright dazzling in Higher Ground's Showcase Lounge Friday July 27. And if that seems hyperbole given his somewhat subdued concert in the same room last autumn, it probably shouldn't: with some eight more months of touring ...

Flynn Center for the Performing Arts

July 20, 2018

Given the musicianly approach Bruce Hornsby has applied to his career, it makes perfect sense for him to tour with Los Lobos. With his bands (originally the Range and now the Noisemakers) ...

Burlington, Vermont
June 1-10, 2018

As the case with any festival worth attending at all, the passionate musiclover faces a challenge with Burlington Discover Jazz. Simply put, it's the choice between attending a marathon of events, thereby risking overload and over-stimulation, or more selectively discern which bills at ...

Radio Underground
The Last Stop Sports Bar
Winooski, Vermont
May 6, 2018

It's a special pleasure to catch a band on the rise, and even more so at the threshold of a breakthrough. Chicago at Tanglewood in 1970 come to mind as does the Who at Fillmore East in 1968. ...

Vorcza at Nectar's

Vorcza
Nectar's
Burlington, VT
January 13, 2018

Vorcza brought its earthy elegance to Nectar's early this new year in what hopefully constitutes a harbinger of more frequent appearances to come in 2018. The stage once inhabited so regularly by Phish can seem uncomfortably cramped for some bands, but from a particular ...

FlynnSpace
Burlington, Vermont
December 16, 2017

In a focused performance comparable to that which his Green Mountain jazz peer, saxophonist/composer Brian McCarthy, offered just two weeks prior, bassist/composer Robinson Morse authoritatively led his Sound of Mind ensemble through a vigorous seventy-five minute ...

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood
The Ballroom at Higher Ground
South Burlington, VT
November 5, 2017

Sunday November 5th was the first night following the end of daylight savings time, which might have held some portent for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, a group whose leader places so much stock in the mystical. ...

The Seth Yacovone Blues Trio
Red Square
Burlington, VT
July 16, 2017

On this warm, breezy summer evening outside Burlington Vermont's Red Square, The Seth Yacovone Blues Trio's first of three sets was sufficiently moving and diverse to satisfy like a concert complete unto itself. Yet the threesome's performance manifest ...
