Duane Carleton and Rick Redington bring back the Heavily Brothers

Friday, Jan. 20 at 9 p.m.—KILLINGTON—Music fan-favorites Rick Redington and Duane Carleton will reunite their acoustic duo the Heavily Brothers on Friday, Jan. 20 at The Foundry in Killington. The 9 p.m. show is free and open to anyone 21 years of age and older.

The Heavily Brothers perform a wildly diverse and unpredictable range of music from classic rock, folk, pop, blues and beyond—a style of collaboration Carleton describes as “spontaneous.”  “The thing with Rick and I is this—we don’t have set lists and don’t discuss what we’re going to play. It really is off-the-cuff, with a lot of improvisation. We are definitely a unique duo.”

The Heavily Brothers were a large force on the music scene in Killington during the 90s, drawing large crowds to their shows at Marcia B’s Roadhouse, among other venues. Redington and Carleton, who began playing together in their teens, went their separate ways in 2006, pursuing their own music careers and each developing loyal followings. After a series of fundraisers brought them back together in front of enthusiastic fans this past year, the pair put a revival in the works.

“It was really easy to play together, like no time had passed. It was like sliding into a very comfortable pair of sneakers. We put our toe in the water, and now we’re proceeding forward,” says Carleton.

The Foundry at Summit Pond is located on Summit Path, just off Killington Road in Killington. For info, visit foundrykillington.com or call 802-422-5335.
