Celebrate the musical roots of New England with Catamount's family-friendly night of Appalachian music. The evening will begin as Vicki Moore and Joe Godwin share some of their favorite Appalachian, country, gospel and original songs. Vicki plays mountain dulcimer and has performed with her daughters (some may remember "HomeSpun" when they were part of St. Johnsbury's 1st Night event). Joe has been playing guitar and writing songs for many years. Their vocals and instrumentals combine nicely to make heartfelt music that warms the soul and can get your feet to tapping. A "back porch style" jam will follow in which all types of folk instruments are welcomed. Musicians will gather in a circle and take turns choosing their favorite tune. Bring your instrument or just come to listen and make new friends!
Location: Catamount Arts Center, 115 Eastern Avenue, St. Johnsbury, VT
