VAE to Host Session Americana


Session Americana brings its unique version of folk and rock music to Bennington at VAE’s next show at the Masonic Hall.

The Vermont Arts Exchange (VAE) welcomes Session Americana on Saturday, April 2, at the Masonic Hall, 504 Main Street, Bennington. Doors open at 7 for the 8 p.m. show. Described as a rock band in a teacup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle, this band/collective of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this free-wheeling modern hootenanny. Session Americana bring a kind of ease and genuineness to their timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American song bag.
