ONE LINE SALES FOR THIS EVENT HAVE ENDED. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.
Vermont Festivals, LLC in association with Flying Under Radar and Kicking & Screaming launch a series of all-acoustic "Summer Sunday Social" concerts at the 200-year old Rockingham (VT) Meeting House with Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion on Sunday, July 22. The Rockingham Meeting House is a National Historic Landmark built between 1787 and 1801 and features wooden 'pig-pen' pews, no electricity and superb acoustics.
Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion have accomplished a great deal in the six years since they formed their musical partnership. Between the release of their 2005 debut album Exploration, and their new, full-length Bright Examples they've undertaken a busy tour schedule both as a duo and as part of the "Guthrie Family Rides Again" tour (with Sarah Lee's dad, Arlo Guthrie).
They've also released the children's album Go Waggaloo (Smithsonian Folkways), a live DVD entitled Folk Song, a solo album by Johnny (Ex Tempore), and brought two fresh folksingers into the world (their daughters Olivia and Sophia). Their new album features the spine-tingling harmonies and country-rock sound they're known for, but leaning in the direction of colorful, dreamy songs with a retro '60s flair. In the opinion of reviewers and fans alike, this duo has clearly found their sweet spot.
Doors for the show open at 1:30, with showtime at 2:00 pm. The Rockingham Meeting House is located on Meeting House Road, just off Rte. 103, a half-mile west of Interstate 91 Exit 6. Free parking is available.
Tickets are available at Village Square Booksellers and Fat Franks in Bellows Falls, Turn it Up! in Brattleboro, Misty Valley Books in Chester, as well as online at brattleborotix.com. For more information, call 802.463.9595.
