The Local Spin: Don’t be afraid to sing alongBy Ali Flewelling
Arts Correspondent | December 26,2013Thanks to my familyís shared love of music, I have had the chance to hear the Vermont Symphony Orchestra twice in the past two weeks, and what a treat! Itís great to see the community join together in music and watch as talented entertainers from all over the Green Mountain State perform live. One thing I enjoy most about this time of year is that everyone can join in song. So, whether your voice carries, or you prefer to hum along, there will be plenty of opportunity to find your favorite tune in the days ahead.
Tonight, Duane Carleton will be at Nipperís Cafť & Steakhouse on Main Street in Manchester. Duane will be tearing it up on guitar starting at 7 p.m.
Friday night, Chad Hollister comes back to his roots with a performance at the Whammy Bar. This little gem is located in the back of the Maple Corners Store on West County Road in Calais. Showtime is 7:30 p.m.
Friday and Saturday, Lost in Paris will take the stage of the Pickle Barrel Nightclub on Killington Road in Killington. The group will perform starting at 8 p.m. both nights.
Modern Bliss will also be entertaining mountain goers at the Wobbly barn for back-to-back Friday and Saturday night shows starting at 9 p.m.
On Saturday, Duane Carleton will be at his usual Killington spot, The Foundry at Summit Pond, for a 3:30 p.m. show. Fans can get a double dose as he then travels to The Clear River Tavern on Route 100 in Pittsfield for a 9 p.m. performance.
