Live music in Lincoln this weekend
LINCOLN — Want some local music? Lincoln is where it’s at this week. Check out the final Barn Concert of the season on Thursday, Sept. 6, or the Burnham Music Series on Saturday, Sept. 8, for some good ol’ tunes.
Today, Thursday, Sept. 6, is the final Barn Concert of the season at Fred and Judi Danforth’s in Lincoln. Tim McKenzie will play the first set and Goose & Finch will play the second set.
If you haven’t been to one of these shows before, it’s a house concert in a barn. Essentially, it’s a listening party. The barn is not a commercial venue.
Bring along friends — be cool and car pool. Bring along a picnic, a chair, your own drinks and anything else you’d like to enjoy. Suggested $15 donation. All are welcome.
Tim McKenzie, one of the founding members of Pine Island, will start the evening. McKenzie is a Vermont flat picking and songwriting legend. He’ll be joined by his cousin Bruce McKenzie on percussion and fellow Pine Island alum David Gusakov on wizardly swing fiddle.
Up next is Goose & Finch. A new collaboration between Henry Finch (keyboards, vocals) and Nate Gusakov (electric banjo, vocals). Featuring original music from the duo, with Jason Pappas on electric bass and Brian Hanf on the drum kit. Songs that are at times raucous, sardonic, delicate, haunting and delightful.
Come by the barn located at 413 Hall Road in Lincoln. Doors open at 7 p.m. Music starts at 8 p.m.
SHADY RILL PLAYS BURNHAM HALL
Patti Casey and Tom MacKenzie will be performing as “Shady Rill” for the Burnham Music Series, at Burnham Hall in Lincoln, on Saturday, Sept. 8. Casey is an award-winning songwriter and her voice will melt your heart, and MacKenzie’s accompanying banjo and voice are a perfect compliment. The duo weaves their way through the many styles of traditional songs and tunes. They’re sure to get your toes a tappin’ and put a smile on your face.
Over their professional careers, both Casey and MacKenzie have presented many school shows, adorned many a private party, packed many a hall, while traveling all lower 48 states bringing great tunes and polished harmonies to appreciative audiences. They will happily make any event shine or charm any audience with their banjo, guitar, hammered dulcimer, flute, keyboard, ukulele, seated clogging and fine humor. Everything from French Canadian dance tunes, to Tin Pan Alley, to Old Time Country, to their own impressive originals is likely to be on the musical menu.
Tickets are $10 for adults, and free for teens and children. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call (802) 388-6863.
