Michele Fay Band bringing Americana to Lincoln
Local favorites Michele Fay Band will step on the stage at Lincoln’s Burnham Hall on Saturday, May 12, and perform original and Americana music for the Burnham Music Series.
The namesake bandleader’s heartfelt lyrics are central to the four-piece ensemble, as Michele sings with a crystal clear, authentic voice. She has been writing songs and performing them for most of her life, but has made it formal for the past 12 years in Vermont. Her three band musicians are a perfect match for Michele’s talent as a singer-songwriter, and they add to the charm and sincerity of these songs without detracting from their earnest messages.
Kalev Freeman on fiddle brings forth a light-hearted, lilting sound. Michael Santosusso on upright bass adds dynamic beat and perfectly matched harmonies. Tim Price contributes accomplished, melodic instrumentals on mandolin and guitar.
Together, than band will play music that brings forth a comfortable groove of folk, swing, and bluegrass-influenced songs that are woven seamlessly together. Observers say the band’s performances are both energetic and unpretentious, appealing to a wide range of audiences. Its growing musicianship is increasingly being well received throughout the region as it continues to gather its well-deserved recognition.
The cost of admission to the 7:30 p.m. show is $10 for adults; teens and kids are free. Refreshments will be served during intermission. Burnham Hall is at 52 River Road right in Lincoln village. For more information, call: 388-6863.
