Vermont bluegrass graces Tinmouth’s Old Firehouse

Friday, Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. — TINMOUTH — John Gillette & Sarah Mittlefehldt return to Tinmouth’s Old Firehouse on Friday, Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. This is the final concert in the 2014 Series. Work is underway by the volunteer organizers to be sure there is music in the Old Firehouse starting in April.

John and Sarah’s music is grounded in the old field of traditional Bluegrass music and nourished by the sounds of the 21st century. They have blazed a trail of bonafide home-spun singing and songwriting, playing guitar, banjo, and an upright bass that towers over Sarah. The songs on their new CD, “Old Field Pines,” stand out in the open, firmly planted in old sounds but calling out anew. Songs like “Ten  Thousand Lies” and “She’s Leaving the Farm for the City” are sung like mountain songs, but are clearly about the 21st Century.

The Old Firehouse is at Vermont 140 and Mountain View Road in downtown Tinmouth. Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. show. Coffee, tea, and locally made treats are available, provided by local groups to support their activities. A donation of $10 is requested at the door.
