Luminous Crush: Laura Molinelli and Ben Campbell in Weston
Local musicians Laura Molinelli and Ben Campbell who perform together as Luminous Crush, will appear in concert on Sunday, May 22, at 4 p.m., in Weston’s Old Parish Church. The pair’s sweet, soaring harmonies shimmer as they perform original songs and lovingly chosen covers. Newly formed in 2015, Luminous Crush has already recorded two albums. The pair is at home with acoustic instruments as well as effects pedals, drum kits and amplifiers.
Ben Campbell has collaborated with a number of Vermont’s musical luminaries, including Anaïs Mitchell, Michael Chorney and Caleb Elder.

She has shared the stage with Lucinda Williams, Dar Williams, The Band, NRBQ, The Samples, Rebecca Hall, Lou Gramm (former lead singer for Foreigner) and The Legendary Lead Singers of the Temptations. She won many fans for her solo performances and her appearances with the Bondville Boys.
