Twangtown Paramours play Salisbury Meetinghouse
On Friday evening, July 9, at 7:30 p.m., the Salisbury Congregational Church will welcome back the award-winning, Nashville-based Americana/Folk duo the Twangtown Paramours. The husband and wife team of songwriter-instrumentalist Mike Lewis and vocalist MaryBeth Zamer have toured nationally with their Nashville/Austin mix of songs that are alternately poetic, socially conscious, and funny. Their annual swings through Vermont, revived after a year of song-writing and virtual performance from home, have included the Spruce Peak Arts Center at Stowe, Killington, Woodstock, Brandon Music, and Marlboro. They have worked with the likes of Jimmie Dale Gilmore and the late Eva Cassidy. Their albums have made top-ten charts in New York and Chicago, individual songs have been released in the U.K. and Korea (where they scored with a near-million-selling #1 hit). Come prepared for an evening of superbly crafted songs, fine musicianship, top-notch singing, and humorous banter.
This will be the second event in the 41st Summer Performance Series, which will run until Aug. 26 at the historic, but handicapped accessible, 1838 meetinghouse in Salisbury Village. Weather permitting, the performance will be under the tent on the side lawn. Come prepared with your own lawn chairs or blankets. In case of rain, it will be indoors. If you have not been fully inoculated, wear a mask. There is no admission charge; a free-will donation in support of the series will be appreciated.
