Jimmy Gaudreau & Moondi Kline Bluegrass Concert
Jimmy Gaudreau & Moondi Kline Bluegrass will be on stage Saturday, October 19th at 8pm at Bennington Center for the Arts.
Emmylou Harris said about Jimmy Gaudreau and Moondi Kline’s newest CD, Home from the Mills, “These two gifted artists, armed only with their instruments, voices, and a good bunch of songs, have produced a record that is a joy to listen to. Thanks, Moondi and Jimmy, for reminding us that less truly can be more.”
On stage with only one guitar, one mandolin and their classically trained voices, the two will share with our patrons their own creativity in music that ranges from traditional folk and ballads to contemporary songs written by the two artists.
Gaudreau and Kline have been performing together since 1990 when they were introduced at a mutual friend’s picking party. After singing a few tunes together, it quickly became evident that they were a great fit. Their first CD as a duo, 2:10 Train on Rebel Records, gained international ac-claim. From this release came many opportunities to perform including a tour of the US and Canada as co-bill and opening artists for Emmylou Harris.
In May of 2012 their second album, mentioned above, was released and received a 4.5 out of 5 star review from the Lonesome Road Review and the following praise from Bill Emerson at the Country Gentleman,”…their duets are reminiscent of the old time acoustic country duos from the 30s and 40s, but are to-tally updated and refined. They are perfect singing partners whose voices blend seamlessly together into one. Both are world class instrumentalists who take traditional string music to the very highest level.”
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the concert begins at 8:00.
