The Local Spin: Don’t be afraid to sing alongBy Ali Flewelling
Arts Correspondent | December 26,2013Thanks to my family’s 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! It’s 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 Nipper’s Café & 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.
Saturday night, you can catch the Aaron Audet Band at JAX in Killington as they perform a mix of your favorite covers starting at 9:30 p.m.
On Sunday, Joshua Tree will be at the Pickle Barrel for an 8 p.m. show.
Also on Sunday, Duane Carleton will be at JAX for local’s night at 9:30 p.m.
Rick Redington performs at The Outback Pizza & Nightclub on Killington Road Sunday night beginning at 9:30 p.m.
The Wobbly Barn welcomes Hazzard County to the stage on Sunday. The group will begin at 9 p.m.
Never in Vegas will also be in Killington to help celebrate the New Year with shows on both Monday and Tuesday starting at 8 p.m.
Local group, Rubblebucket, will be at Higher Ground in South Burlington on Monday and Tuesday nights. Tickets are on sale ranging from $17 to $35 and can be purchased by visiting highergroundmusic.com. Don’t miss your chance to see these Indie rockers live.
Also, I wanted to remind you all that there is an open mic night at Center Street Alley in downtown Rutland every Wednesday. Steve Audsley invites interested musicians to take the stage starting at 9 p.m. If you haven’t had a chance to go yet, this is a great way to start 2014 off right!
