After a full day of hiking at Smugglers Notch and parts of Long Trail, I performed at The Radio Bean in Burlington in the evening . A band called Copilot opened up the evening. They are an awesome acoustic duo that features perfect harmonies, some percussion and a little harmonica too! Check em out here. Here is the duo covering some Dave Matthew's Band.
I played in the middle of the show and I was pleased to discovered that an incredible grand piano was waiting for me! It was perfectly tuned and all of the pedals were working! I closed my set on guitar, ending with Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry."
The headlining band was an absolutely mind-blowing duo called Tart Vandelay. The duo consists of percussion and vocals on a looper pedal, sometimes having four different vocal parts at once! There is also a guitar player, who looked like he was having the time of his life and shredding acoustic style. The duo had one song about how our generation is obsessed with computers, which really struck a chord with me. I invited the duo to come to Massachusetts so you all can see the magic for yourself this winter!
The show was truly one of my favorites of the journey. Jon and his wife Rachel sent me home with a bag full of apples they picked and some tea to get me through the rest of my travels. They are some of the kindest folks in all of New England! Photos courtesy of Jon and Rachel!
An unbelievably tight latin-jazz trio opened up the night. I love bossa music and I truly felt like I was transported to a much warmer place!
So many of my New York friends came, including my good friend Caitlin Shea, who took this video of my set. It's nice to see a familiar face when you are far from home. Here's some "Bang Bang."
