Folk musician Melissa Plett bares her soul

This Saturday evening, Notte (downstairs Two Brothers in Middlebury) welcomes Melissa Plett and her folk music. Originally from a farm-yard in Manitoba, this truck-driver’s daughter has journeyed her way through thick and thin, chiseling and shaping her sound to what it is today. Plett’s influences come from the down-south storytelling of Johnny Cash, the tell-all nature of Kitty Wells, and the heart-wrenching tales of hardship from Etta James and Ray Charles.
At the age of 13, Melissa was involved in a vehicular accident that took the life of her cousin and best friend and almost cost her her own life as well. However, Plett overcame debilitating and life-threatening injuries to over half her body, avoiding amputation and eventually taking the long, slow road to recovery. With a second chance at life, she vowed never to take her existence for granted.
After pouring her heart out on the piano through her teenage years, Plett soon picked up a guitar and began her first foray into songwriting. Playing open mics and cafe gigs, collaborating with like-minded musicians and joining the trio group Little Black Dress, Plett’s confidence grew. And with that came more recording and performing opportunities.
However, as Plett’s music career started to crescendo, she found out that her mother was diagnosed with brain cancer and was given one year to live. Plett poured her pain into her music and advanced her career all the way to Nashville. She released her first studio album “Ghost Town” in 2017.
If you’re looking for something new and beautifully honest, don’t miss Plett’s concert this Saturday.
