Burnham Music Series sets slate of Lincoln concerts
LINCOLN — The Burnham Music Series is about to begin its sixth season at Burnham Hall. Thanks to local volunteers, sponsors, donors, and top-notch Vermont artists, the music series has become a success for the surrounding community.
After many renovations to this historic building, including stage lighting and sound improvement, Burnham Hall is the ideal setting for audiences to absorb a variety of musical performances in an intimate and friendly space. Seating is close to the stage, admission is kept at a reasonable price and delicious homemade desserts and coffee are served downstairs during intermission. There is always plenty of room for seating, and many enjoy dancing in the back when the music gets lively. An excellent sound system and sound engineer are present for the shows in order to provide the best sound quality.
Because there is much local talent to draw from, the series prefers to showcase Vermont musicians who have spent time writing, creating, recording and producing their own Vermont flavored music that area folks are eager to hear. Folk, bluegrass, blues, old time country and gypsy jazz are just some of the genres that the Burnham Music Series offers.
The shows take place on the second Saturday of the month from September through May. The 2016-2017 lineup will be: Kelly Ravin and Lowell Thompson (country/pop); The DuPont Brothers (indie/folk); The Dave Keller Band (soul/blues); Possumhaw (bluegrass/folk); Va-Et-Vient (French/Quebecois); Red Hot Juba (countrified jazz/blues); Patrick Fitzsimmons and friends (folk/pop); The Will Patton Ensemble (gypsy jazz/ Brazilian); and The Michele Fay Band (folk/bluegrass).
Doors open at 7 p.m. and shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults; teens and kids are free. Burnham Music Series has a facebook page that features videos and schedules of upcoming performers. Individuals or couples can become sponsors of the series by contributing $100 and in turn will have free entrance to all shows of the season. For more information about the series, or to become a sponsor, call: 802-388-6863.
