The 4th annual Local Legends Concert will be held at 7:00 p.m. at Champlain Valley Union High School on Jan. 27. The Will Patton Quartet, Patti Casey and PossumHaw will be part of the lineup featuring some of the most talented acoustic musicians in Vermont. This is a benefit concert for Responsible Growth Hinesburg, an advocacy group focused on responsible land use and environmental stewardship.
Will Patton Quartet
Combine a jazz/Brazilian mandolinist with an accordionist, add a string bass player, a lifelong guitarist and stir in a little rock & roll attitude and season for 15 years and you get some idea of the music of the Will Patton Quartet.
This prolific songwriter has perfected her own New England-flavored, bluegrassy style. She has recorded five solo albums, and her latest, “The Heart of a Waiting Boy,” is aural testament to “the sweetest voice and some of the finest songwriting to come out of Vermont…” (Vermont Public Radio).
A special combination: the drive of bluegrass and the original lyricism of folk, delivered by Colby Crehan, one of the finest female vocalists in the region. After performing together for 12 years, PossumHaw will be playing its final round of shows this winter—loss for Vermont but a wonderful opportunity to see them one last time and benefit a great local cause.
Tickets are $20 and $15 for students 18 and under. Tickets can be purchased through Flynntix, and the Vermont Liquor Store in the Aubuchon Plaza in Hinesburg.
