Wednesday, Jan. 9, 7 p.m.—WALLINGFORD—The Sky Blue Boys, a duo comprised of Willy and Dan Lidner, will perform at Wallingford Town Hall on Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. The duo has built up a large repertoire of wonderful old ballads, parlor songs, heart songs and sacred numbers. Heeding their own musical instincts, the Sky Blue Boys have expanded the accompaniment to include a variety of acoustic instruments and added many newer songs including several of their own compositions.
Willy and Dan have played together for decades. They formed the celebrated Vermont bluegrass band Banjo Dan and the Mid-Nite Plowboys in 1972 and have toured and recorded extensively in that context, as well as sitting in on shows and recording sessions for many of the region’s top acoustic musicians. But never far from their hearts were the sounds they learned to love long ago – the simple moving sounds of the early “brothers duets.”
There is a suggested donation of $10-$15 per person at the door. The town hall is located at 75 School St., Wallingford. For more information, call 802-446-2872.
