Up Popped the Music in Bristol

November 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

5Town Friends of the Arts presents the 3rd in the series of pop-up music concerts with Va et Vient Thursday November 14th 7pm at Vermont Tree goods 27 Main St Bristol
Admission by free will donation.

Vermont’s Addison County group Va-et-vient (‘Come & Go’) celebrates the many colors found in music from several French cultures. These musiciennes will take you through the centuries from France to Québec and New Orleans with lively dance numbers, touching love songs, kickin’ Cajun and Créole tunes, and rollicking Québecois favorites. From our neighbors to the north, they bring back traditional tunes learned from Québecois elders (and youngsters!), reweave them into their own arrangements, and have been spreading them throughout New England and Québec since 2001. The group includes Carol Reed from Leicester (voice, guitar, & mandolin), Suzanne Germain from Lincoln (voice and percussion), and Lausanne Allen from South Starksboro (voice, fiddles, flute, penny whistles, harmonica, & mandolins).
