Video: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
Editor’s Note: The following video is provided courtesy of Steven Kwasnik, producer of On Canvas, which airs on WHYY-TV in Philadelphia. It’s the story of Vermont rocker Grace Potter and the band The Nocturnals, and their rise to fame. Along the way she reflects on Vermont and her family upbringing. Addison Independent and Vermont Ski & Ride Magazine editor and publisher Angelo Lynn wrote extensive stories on the Potter family a couple of years ago (focusing on Grace’s dad, Sparky and her mom, Peggy, as two of the original ski bums that made successful careers along the way) which, along a few photos of the family, were used in the video. We’re happy to share and to be a part of this great Vermont story, and cheers to On Canvas for a well-done profile with ample footage of Grace rocking out.
