New York-based punk bands Cash Registers and The Tracys have tied their fortunes together with a Northeast tour, with one of their first stops in Bennington.
Hannah Gill and The Hours combines 70s lo-fi pop and rock with contemporary soul and blues, transforming them into sweet and sultry songs that overflow with feeling. Steered by soulful 19-year old vocal powerhouse and songwriter Hannah Gill and the skilled guitarist, songwriter and arranger Brad Hammonds, the group offers up music with contagious melodies and wise lyrics.
Libations will be available for purchase. For more information about Vermont Arts Exchange and the 2017 Basement Music Series season, call 802-442-5549 or visit vtartxchange.org.
