Brandon Music





Saturday, August 26 at 7:30pm

DaddyLonglegs is the confluence of three well known Vermont musicians whose talents merge to form a highly original acoustic trio. David Gusakov, Rick Ceballos, and Matt Witten infuse catchy folk songs, Celtic and “old-timey” melodies, and early minstrel and jazz pieces with passion and intricacy.

Seven Days' music reviewer Dan Bolles described the group's self-titled CD as “a finely curated collection of traditional tunes and originals, performed with exceptional skill and taste”. Playing fiddle, viola, banjo, gourd banjo, piano, guitar, percussion and vocals, DaddyLongLegs creates vibrant, sensitive and surprising 21st-century folk music.

Rick Ceballos is a banjo and button accordion player who has been playing and promoting traditional folk music in the Champlain Valley for over twenty five years. He has performed solo and with various groups. Ceballos recorded a solo CD of his original works in 2002 called ‘Spring is Near'. He has written music for film scores and often performs his History of the Banjo program for libraries and festivals

David Gusakov arrived in Vermont in 1973 and has been playing music in the state fulltime ever since. A long-time member of the Vermont Symphony, he has explored a variety of other genres with any number of ensembles. Currently, in addition to DaddyLongLegs, he plays as a member of Last Train to Zinkov with his son Nate, and Swing Noire, an acoustic Parisian jazz ensemble.

Matt Witten began his performing career on the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater with Pete Seeger and a bunch of other sailors and enviros. Witten's main gig is with the Swing Peepers, who carry on the tradition of earth-friendly songs for families in Vermont and surrounding states. With DaddyLongLegs, Witten plays guitar, keyboard, and percussion.

This event is a part of Vermont Arts 2017, celebrating arts in Vermont.
