Kat Wright to perform at the Pickle Barrel

Thursday, Feb. 22, 8 p.m.—KILLINGTON—Vermont-based soul singer Kat Wright will appear in concert on Thursday, Feb. 22 at the Pickle Barrel Nightclub in Killington. The show is open to anyone 21 years of age and older.

Wright’s sultry voice has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse.”  Wright and her band entered the Vermont music scene in 2010 when they began playing covers at Burlington’s Radio Bean for a series called “Soul Sessions.” Since then, the group has climbed steadily through the musical ranks to regional prominence, and has become one of Vermont’s most well-known bands. Their debut EP was released in 2013, and their first full-length album, “By My Side,” was recorded in Brooklyn and released in November 2016.

Wright has performed on stages with The Original Wailers, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and Leon Russell, among others. She has appeared at the Syracuse Jazz Festival, Grand Point North and the Brooklyn Bowl, as well as in venues along the East Coast from Montreal to Virginia.

Tickets may be purchased online, at JAX Food & Games, or at the Pickle Barrel during business hours. Tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the performance. Doors open at 8 p.m. The Pickle Barrel is located midway on the Killington Road. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call 802-422-3035.
