Thursday, Dec. 6, 7 p.m.RUTLAND—Fresh off the standing-room-only release of their debut album, “The One That Got Away,” Miss Guided Angels will play the historic Chaffee Art Center in Rutland on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. The show is part of a series produced by New Edge Productions and hosted by The Chaffee Arts Center.
Miss Guided Angels came together three years ago when Lisa Gardner and George Nostrand began playing regularly at the Highline Lodge in Killington. The singer-songwriters added percussionist Bob Campbell and fiddler Jimmy Kalb rounding out their own take on Americana music, which they dubbed “Ver-mericana” sound.
Influences include Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams, as well as CCR and Cowboy Junkies. Both Gardner and Nostrand were heavily influenced by the popular songbook, “Rise Up Singing,” assembled in Vermont.
The band caught local attention through events like Hops on Top in Rutland and festivals like Harvest Moon, Roots on the River and NoTown. The band opened for Gang of Thieves, Crazyhearse and Plumb Bobs.
Songs from the album have already received airplay on WFVR’s “Green Mountain Global” and VPR’s “All The Traditions.” Prior to the release, a single from the album, “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow” was chosen by the blog County Tracks as one of the Best New Songs of September 2018.
Chaffee Art Center is located at 16 S. Main St., Rutland. Tickets are $7 at the door.
