Christmas concert featuring Dickerson and Nop

 

Saturday, December 20th at 7:30pm

Matthew Dickerson and Susan Nop join us to present a concert celebrating their Christmas CD “The Brilliant Whiteness of Snow”. This harmony-rich lyric-oriented Americana music duo brings together influences of folk, bluegrass, blues, gospel, country and the singer-songwriter tradition with a unique mix of their originals. They will perform a variety of other songs and covers of their favorite artists such as Over the Rhine, Pierce Pettis, Buddy and Julie Miller. Nop (piano, accordion, vocals) and Dickerson (guitar, bass, harmonica, vocals) will be joined by Dutton Smith (bass, violin, percussion, vocals).

Dickerson, prior to his collaborative efforts with Nop, received national radio airplay as a songwriter, bassist, and one of the original members of the blues band Deep Freyed. Dickerson appeared solo with Deep Freyed and more recently with the band Zephyr. He has performed music at clubs, colleges, and festivals around New England as well as in venues in Texas, British Columbia and New Jersey. Dickerson is also the author of numerous books.

Susan Nop is a musician and teacher in Middlebury, Vermont. She is lead vocalist, pianist and songwriter behind the Americana musical quartet Zephyr. Tapping into her southern roots, she brings both passion and authenticity to her work. Jeff Rehbach, conductor of the Middlebury Community Chorus, notes that “Susan weaves a wonderful tapestry of melody and harmony as a pianist. Her singing brings lyrics to life with sincerity and spirit”. Nop currently enjoys solo performance and collaborations with other musicians, both in the classical and Americana traditions. Susan notes that, “playing music has always been a delight for me. Whether it is the simple beauty of an Appalachian tune or the fire and fury of Beethoven, performing evokes the sense that I'm a small part of a long tradition. I hope to communicate that sense of belonging to others when I play.”

Tickets are $15 with a pre-concert dinner available for an additional $20. Reservations are recommended for the show and required for dinner. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 247-4295 or e-mail us for reservations or more information.
