DEB BRISSON AND THE HAY BURNERS
Saturday, Jan. 27, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON— On Jan. 27, Brandon Music welcomes back Deb Brisson and the Hay Burners, at 7:30 p.m. Led by Brisson’s powerful, expressive vocals, this group of veteran Addison County performers offers music that is real and heartfelt, from soulful and bluesy to rocking alt-country. With an album of original songs, “Heart-Shaped Stone,” to its credit, the band mixes its own work with favorite covers by artists such as Natalie Merchant, Amy Winehouse, Ryan Adams, Slim Harpo, Talking Heads and more.
Backing Brisson’s guitar and vocals are Mark Pelletier on guitar and vocals, Carl Boss on bass and vocals, John Wallace on drums, and Doug Wilhelm on congas, percussion and harmonica.
“If I had to pick a genre for our music, it would be Americana — but it really is a little bit of everything,” Brisson said. “In my vocals I tend to reach for a soulful, passionate feel, and we’ve got some really fine harmonies going with Carl and Mark. They also step in with some lead vocals, and Mark’s lead Telecaster is just so expressive on top of the driving bass and percussion.”
She added, “I love music, I feel it deeply and I want the crowd to feel it as well. I think that comes through with this group.”
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. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon. For reservations or more information, call 802-247-4295 or visit brandon-music.net.
