DaddyLongLegs

The Addison Independent calls DaddyLongLegs' music “irresistibly exuberant”. The trio of seasoned Vermont musicians – David Gusakov, Rick Ceballos, and Matt Witten – infuse 15th century French country dances and ‘oldtimey' melodies with Celtic music and jazz pieces. The mixed repertoire, according to the Addison Independent, results in a night of music “guaranteed to brush away the blues”, music that is “upbeat, whimsical, delightful”.

The convergence of these three musicians' talents forms a highly original acoustic trio. DaddyLongLegs “will take you on a musical journey around the world with their wonderful arrangements of traditional and original tunes” (The Ripton Community Coffee House). Between them, they play fiddle, viola, banjo, gourd banjo, piano, guitar, percussion, as well as sing, creating vibrant, sensitive and surprising 21st-century folk music.

Rick Ceballos is a banjo and button accordion player who has been playing and promoting traditional folk music in the Champlain Valley for over twenty five years. He has written music for film scores and often performs his History of the Banjo program for libraries and festivals.

David Gusakov is a long-time member of the Vermont Symphony, while also exploring a variety of other genres with any number of ensembles, including the Last Train to Zinkov with his son Nate, and Swing Noire, an acoustic Parisian jazz ensemble.

Matt Witten began his performing career on the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater with Pete Seeger and a bunch of other sailors and enviros. Witten's main gig is with the Swing Peepers, who carry on the tradition of earth-friendly songs for families in Vermont and surrounding states.

DaddyLongLegs have played in many Vermont venues including the Tinmouth Firehouse Music Series, Bristol Best Night, Spice on Snow Music Festival, Burlington City Arts Noontime Concert Series, and Burnham Music Series.
