Britt Connors & Bourbon Renewal

 

Saturday, July 18th at 7:30pm

The members of Bourbon Renewal are no stranger to Brandon Music, as regular visitors will know them as members of the John Funkhouser Quartet, but this concert marks Britt Connor's debut performance at the unique Brandon venue. Hear their blend of blues, folk, and country with jazz voicings and pop sensibilities live with us on the 18th.

DJ Joltin' Joe Pszonek of Radio Nowhere 90.3 in NJ says Britt “draws you in with folky charm and then sucker punches you with her amazing pipes!” while the Boston Globe says “h er pitch perfect voice and smartly written songs show amazing versatility in a broad range of styles. [Connors] evokes a young Patty Larkin in her vocal quality and is blessed with a similar eclectic style.”

Britt's latest album ‘ Warmer Season ' features her original tunes that are alternately rockin', country, sweet, rootsy, New-Orleans-street-parade-style, or just plain fun.  With its clapping, foot-stomping, and even some whistling, the record could be said to belong in its own category of "Y'all-Ternative" music.

Bourbon Renewal  is a tight ensemble well-steeped in a wide range of American music.  Members are some of Boston's most in-demand musicians:  John Funkhouser  on keys,  Greg Loughman  on bass, Andrew Stern  on lead guitars, and  Mike Connors  on percussion.

Britt was born and raised singing in small-town West Boylston, MA before taking her studies to Ithaca College in NY.  She did a 4-year stint as the featured vocalist for the 20-piece Compaq Big Band (swing, jazz, and American Songbook), singing to audiences at Scullers, Ryles and Regattabar while building a loyal following and honing her songwriting craft.  Her first original tunes appear on her 2010 release ‘ The Bad Side of Good ,' which presents insightful lyrics and captivating melodies that leave the listener with a vivid tapestry of imagery and sound. 

This event celebrates Vermont Arts 2015, in celebration of public funding for the arts.

Tickets are $20 with a pre-concert dinner also available for $20. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 247-4295 or e-mail us for reservations or more information.
