A sound and style that could easily have come from Memphis or Chicago is perhaps what makes John Lackard and his Green Mountain origin so unique. Not just another trip on the “Blues Bandwagon” that is so ever popular today. This is the real thing.His apparent connection and understanding began when his father brought the Boogie Woogie piano and records into the household, and started a professional career that has lasted over half of a century.

Prydein photo

Prydein is an American Celtic rock band forged in the Green Mountains of Vermont. With a diverse array of musicians from all different backgrounds, the boys have melded the traditional Celtic music of Scotland, Ireland, Galicia, and Brittany, with the traditional Classic Rock music of Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, and the J. Geils Band. It is the mix of an American rock band with the Great Highland Bagpipe… the taste of chocolate and peanut butter, if ears could taste.

The Rough and Tumble (Concert on the Common)

The Rough and Tumble photo

The Rough & Tumble are as easy to detect as a stray dog on your doorstep– and as difficult to send home. The dumpster-folk, thriftstore-Americana duo, consisting of Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler and their menagerie of classic folk and homemade instruments, have been hobbling around the country in their 16ft camper with their two dogs since 2015, taking their songs to the far corners of the US and to the weird little towns they pass along the way. Love Is Gross…but it looks good on you, the newest collection of songs by The Rough & Tumble is a “fun project of kinda, sorta love songs” released February 11th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. This comes on the heels of We’re Only Family If You Say So, the 2021 album about what it means to be family, and what it means to lose it. With a single debuting on The Bluegrass Situation and Grateful Web referring to the album as “a must listen,” it has been embraced by fans for its stark honesty, unique storytelling and well-crafted melodies, especially at a time when families are deeply divided.

Hi-Way 5 photo

HI-WAY 5 is a high energy Vermont based rock band that plays classic songs from the 50s, 60s, and 70s along with original songs that were born right here in the Upper Valley. HI-WAY 5 is a classic power trio with occasional guest musicians who add to the the flavor of HI-WAY 5’s brand of rock n roll. Covers include all manner of nuggets from Elvis to the Beatles, from Creedence Clearwater Revival to Jimi Hendrix, from Chuck Berry to the Rolling Stones, and all points in between. Their originals delve into local experiences like navigating the old rope tow at Northeast Slopes in East Corinth, mysterious happenings on Brushwood Road, and the timelessness of a summertime Saturday night at the old HI-WAY 5 Drive In Theater in Fairlee, from which the band derives their name.
