Saturday, Dec. 1, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON— Vermont’s own Va-et-vient is a trio performing French, Québecois, Cajun, and Créole music. Carol Reed, Suzanne Germain, and Lausanne Allen each have backgrounds rich in French cultures and language through lifelong experiences living and traveling in French-speaking lands. They create beautiful harmonies, teaching and engaging audiences on both sides of the Quebec border. Take a step out of Vermont without actually leaving, and hear Va-et-vient at Brandon Music on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
Since 2001, the group has carved out its place in New England and particularly in Québec, where its ties to traditional musicians provide a fountain of resources in collections of songs, tunes, and dances. “Their joyous music is filled with deep history and an unrestrained, soulful rhythm — it’s impossible not to smile, let alone keep your toes from tapping,” wrote the Addison Independent.
Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for $25. 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.
