Last train to Zinkov stops in Lincoln this Saturday
Last Train to Zinkov will perform at Burnham Hall, 52 River Road in Lincoln on Saturday, Sept. 9, 7:30 p.m., for the Burnham Music Series.
David and Nathan Gusakov, father and son, play with a lively, toe-tapping touch, sing with mournful sensitivity, and exhibit a creative chemistry that can only be born of a lifetime of relationship. Their music tells of the beauty and peace of home, of delight and sadness and the wild human emotions inherent in living and dying.
David arrived in Vermont in 1973, joining the Vermont Symphony Orchestra that year and bluegrass/swing band Pine Island the next. In the intervening 42 years he has been a full-time musician, playing with such groups as the Midnite Plowboys, Redwing, Swing Shift, Will Patton Ensemble, Swing Noire and Michele Choiniere. At home in a wide variety of genres, he brings improvisatory flare and depth of feeling to everything he plays.
Nathan lives with his family in Lincoln, near the headwaters of the New Haven River, where he makes his living as a carpenter and musician. He is self-taught on the banjo, and his first album of all-original music, Running Clear (2011), received praise for its “stellar claw hammer style banjo and rich lyricism” (Jamie Masefield, Jazz Mandolin Project).
Doors at Burnham Hall open at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be available during intermission. Admission is $10 for adults, teens and kids are free. Call (802) 388-6863 for more information.
