Deb Brisson and The Hay Burners to play at Brandon Music
Brandon Music welcomes the return of the popular Deb Brisson and The Hay Burners on Saturday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m. The concert will open Brandon Music’s 2022 and final season.
Brisson and the Hay Burners are a group of veteran Addison County performers, led by Brisson’s powerful, expressive vocals. Their songs are real and heartfelt, ranging from soulful and bluesy to rocking alt-country. With an album of original music, “Heart-Shaped Stone,” to its credit, the band plays a mix of its own work and favorite covers by artists such as Natalie Merchant, Alabama Shakes, Coldplay, the Talking Heads and more.
Backing Brisson’s guitar and vocals are Mark Pelletier on guitar and vocals, John Wallace on drums, Carl Boss on bass and vocals, and Doug Wilhelm on congas, percussion and harmonica.
“I think if I had to pick a genre for our music, it would be Americana,” Brisson said, “but it really is a little bit of everything. I think the sound is becoming distinctive. Mark’s Telecaster style brings that country ‘chicken pickin’ sound on top of the driving bass and percussion. I think my vocal style changes a bit from song to song, but I’ve always gravitated to a soulful, passionate feel. I love music, I feel it deeply and I want the crowd to feel it as well. I think that comes through with this group.”
Saturday concert tickets are $25. A pre-concert dinner is available for and extra $35. Reservations are required for dinners and recommended for the show and can be made online at brandon-music.net.
