Live Concerts

Katie Trautz & New Foundry with Rusty Belle

Event Date: 
Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 8:00pm

The New Foundry is an all-star Americana band from Vermont, featuring fiddle, acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, bass and vocals.  The band performs original folk and old-time with a unique contemporary inflection.   Each member contributes original songwriting, haunting melodies and upbeat fiddle tunes. The group is composed of some of Vermont’s finest musicians who have been touring and performing in stellar ensembles for a number of years.  The New Foundry weaves together roots music of the past with contemporary arrangements, tight three part harmonies, and compelling improvisation.

Rusty Belle began with the quiet determination to make unique music.  Starting in their living rooms and working their way through coffee shops, bars, clubs, listening rooms, concert halls, and festival stages, they developed a style all their own. rusty belle swings easily from sweet, simple melodies, whiskey lullabies, blood ballads, busted bluegrass, and folk-punk anthems, to tongue-in-cheek sleaze-rock, glossy-mag candy-pop, and down-home porch-tunes.  The remarkable thing is that its all done with honesty and respect for the music.  Their shows are never predictable and always dynamic. at their best they will bring to you sweet nostalgia, swaggering poise, drunken logic, and grimy dancing before sending you home with a gentle "goodnight."

Tickets: $12, members $10
