Saturday, Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — The music of the Twangtown Paramours has been called “Sophisticated Americana,” and is a hybrid of the Nashville and Austin music scenes. The acoustic duo, made up of MaryBeth Zamer and Mike T. Lewis, Twangtown Paramours is known for their well-crafted and award-winning songs, top-notch lead singing, and fine harmonies. They can be heard at Brandon Music on Saturday, Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

During their summer Northeast tour, the duo performed at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe and was featured on WCAX-TV in Burlington. Nationally, they have performed at recognized venues such as Uncle Calvin’s in Dallas, Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, and the Bluebird Café in Nashville. They have opened for Joe Ely, Claire Lynch, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Carrie Newcomer, and Kim & Reggie Harris, among others.

With their third album on the way, the Twangtown Paramours are sure to see more praise and chart-rankings for their efforts. Their sophomore album reached no. 2 on the Folk DJ Chart and radio stations in NYC and Chicago also listed the album among their very top albums of the year.

In 2013, the Twangtown Paramours were chosen – for a second time – to be finalists in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk contest and in 2012, the Twangers (technically, MaryBeth Zamer) won the Michael Terry People’s Choice Award in the Wildflower Arts and Music Festival Songwriter Contest. Their songs can be heard on over 70 Americana, folk, and independent country radio stations world-wide.
