Patti Casey returns home to play at Vergennes Opera House
After many years touring nationally with Woods Tea Co, Patti Casey has reunited with longtime musical collaborator Colin McCaffrey and former Bluegrass Gospel Project bandmates Steve Light and Kirk Lord. Together The Wicked Fine Players will bring their music to Patti’s hometown — Vergennes — on Saturday, Nov. 10, 7:30 p.m. This reunion puts a little more blue in the bluegrass, adds a little more swing and a whole lotta fun.
“Vergennes is my hometown, where I was born and raised, and the Vergennes Opera House holds a special place in my heart,” Casey said. “I am so happy to be able to play there again and this time with this terrific group, The Wicked Fine Players.”
The group features Casey, guitar, flute, foot percussion and vocals; McCaffrey, guitar, fiddle, mandolin and vocals; Light, banjo, dobro and harmonies; and Lord, bass.
“This will be an exceptional evening of musicianship,” said Gerianne Smart, President of the Vergennes Opera House and event producer. “Not only will folks enjoy seeing Vergennes-native Patti on the stage, but they will be able to witness the incredible acoustic richness of the historic theater. The building will literally ‘sigh’ with gratitude.”
Tickets are $15 in advance online at vergennesoperahouse.org or at LuLu’s Ice Cream Shop on Main Street in Vergennes, or $18 at the door. Doors and cash bar open at 6:30 p.m. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
