Saturday, Jan. 30 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — Ian Ethan Case, a Boston-based multi-instrumentalist best known for his innovative approach to the 18-string acoustic double-neck guitar, has become a favorite at Brandon Music. He will perform there along with Berklee College of Music percussionist Bertram Lehmann on Jan. 30 at 7:30 p.m.

The duo will preview new compositions from Case’s next album “Earth Suite,” as well as perform exciting duo versions of songs from his recent “Run Toward The Mountains” album. Bertram has an advanced degree from Tufts in Ethnomusicology and is the assistant percussion professor at Berklee College of Music where he teaches a world music class.

Case is thrilled to be bringing Bertram to Brandon Music, stating “He is really an incredible musician and the word ‘percussionist’ really doesn’t do justice to the extremely wide range of sounds, textures and dynamic shaping he brings to the music. Using a jungle of percussive instruments from all over the world, he really helps highlight the structure of these compositions in beautiful and effective ways, and of course it’s so much more fun and inspiring getting to play with someone as opposed to just doing my solo thing. Some of the best improvised solos I feel like I’ve ever done have been when playing live with Bertram.”

Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is also available for $20. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB. Call 802-247-4295 or email [email protected] for reservations or for more information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon. Visit the website at
