Hayburners bring the party to Salisbury

SALISBURY — On Friday, Aug. 2, at 7:30 p.m., the 40th annual Salisbury Summer Performance Series (at the Salisbury Congregational Meetinghouse) will host a performance by Addison County favorites Deb Brisson and the Hayburners. Behind Brisson’s powerfully expressive singing, the band combines original songs with favorites by Natalie Merchant, Joan Osborne, Keb Mo, Ryan Adams and many more.
Brisson is joined by Mark Pelletier on guitar and vocals, Carl Boss on bass and vocals, John Wallace on drums, and Doug Wilhelm on harmonica, congas and percussion. The band’s repertoire, arranged and rehearsed in the loft above Brisson’s Weybridge horse barn, ranges from Americana and alt-country to rollicking R&B, with soulful vocals, fine harmonies, and driving bass and percussion. They are back by popular demand — their performance last year having had folks dancing in the aisles.
This will be the fifth event in the Summer Performance Series, which will continue  on Friday evenings until Aug. 9 at the historic, but handicapped accessible, 1838 meetinghouse in Salisbury Village. There is no admission charge; a free-will donation in support of the series will be appreciated. Any receipts in excess of the expenses for the series will be applied to the continuing restoration of the Salisbury landmark.
