Tinmouth Old Firehouse to Host Vermont Bluegrass Duo
John Gillette and Sarah Mittlefehldt return to Tinmouth’s Old Firehouse on Friday, October 24, at 7:30 p.m., for the final concert in the 2014 Series. Work is underway by the volunteer organizers to be sure the music continues starting in April.
John and Sarah’s music is grounded in the old field of traditional bluegrass music, nourished by the sounds of the 21st century. They have blazed a trail of bonafide home-spun singing and songwriting, playing guitar, banjo, and an upright bass that towers over Sarah. The Old Firehouse, with its modest size, outstanding acoustics and warm, friendly audiences is the place to hear them.
Located on Route 140 and Mountain View Road in downtown Tinmouth, Vt., the doors open at The Old Firehouse at 7 p.m. Coffee, tea and locally made treats are available, provided by local groups to support their activities. A donation of $10 is requested. Ninety percent of the donations are paid to the performers, with the balance paid to the town for upkeep of the Old Firehouse.
