Saturday, March 4, 7:30 p.m.—RANDOLPH—Brothers Sam and Zack DuPont play Vermont-made folk-Americana, reunited after years of geographical separation by a fortified collaboration in music. Lush finger-style guitar work is complimented by elegant prose and a vocal blend that could only be matched by blood relation. The duo will perform Saturday, March 4, 7:30 p.m. as part of Chandler Music Hall’s Live & Upstairs series.
Based out of Burlington, the indie-folk-rock duo has kept busy on the road since 2013. Their two records, “Heavy as Lead” (2015) and “A Riddle For You” (2016), have taken them all over the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, South and Midwest playing in support of some of their musical heroes including Sturgill Simpson, Jerry Douglas, Blake Mills, Bahamas and Chris Eldridge and Julian Lage. A new EP is in the works for early this year.
The Live & Upstairs series aims to provide affordable interactive performances and community events featuring regional musicians, poets, storytellers, comedians, and more. The Upper Gallery underwent extensive renovations as part of Chandler’s centennial project in 2010, and has provided a venue for intimate performances, classes, and workshops. Other Live & Upstairs events this year have included local band Haywire and Burlington-based Kamikaze Comedy. Chandler will collaborate with PoemTown to round out the season with PoemTown’s closing celebration on April 28 at 7 p.m.: Pie and Poetry. Poet and Vermont Public Radio host Reuben Jackson reads from his work, a local jazz trio provides musical accompaniment, and homemade pie sweetens the evening.
General admission is $12.
