Britt Connors & Bourbon Renewal

Saturday, July 18 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — The members of Bourbon Renewal are no stranger to Brandon Music, as regular visitors will know them as members of the John Funkhouser Quartet, but this concert marks Britt Connor’s debut performance at the unique Brandon venue. Hear their blend of blues, folk, and country with jazz voicings and pop sensibilities live on July 18 at 7:30 p.m.

Connors’ latest album, “Warmer Season” features her original tunes that are alternately rockin’, country, sweet, rootsy, New-Orleans-street-parade-style, or just plain fun. With its clapping, foot-stomping, and even some whistling, the record could be said to belong in its own category of “Y’all-Ternative” music.

Bourbon Renewal is a tight ensemble well-steeped in a wide range of American music.  Members are some of Boston’s most in-demand musicians: John Funkhouser on keys, Greg Loughman on bass, Andrew Stern on lead guitars, and Mike Connors on percussion.

This event celebrates Vermont Arts 2015, in celebration of public funding for the arts.

Concert tickets are $20. Venue is BYOB. Call 802-247-4295 or email for reservations or more information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon.
