Cricket Blue's Website:

February’s featured artists in Cabot Arts’s new “Cabot Folk Club” concert series will be Burlington-based indie folk duo from Burlington, Cricket Blue. When you first hear the haunting chamber folk of Laura Heaberlin and Taylor Smith, you might think of Simon & Garfunkel or of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.


Cricket Blue were voted “Best Folk Group” in Vermont’s Seven Daysie Awards and they've played stages and folk festivals around the United States and Canada. NPR Music calls Cricket Blue “master storytellers” and the All Scene Eye says Cricket Blue “sets a new standard for fiction-folk.”

Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno
$17 Adv. $20 Door

Vivian and Riley's Website:

On tour from the Pacific Northwest, Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno write and perform old-soul roots music with stunning breadth and originality. 


Both Leva and Calcagno grew up in the Appalachian stringband tradition, have noted parents in the old-time scene, and spent formative years running wild around festival campgrounds. They are steeped in an instrumental culture of hard-picking and virtuosic musicianship. 


Plus...  Afternoon Workshops and Potluck 
At the Willey Building Meeting Room
Workshops 4pm   /  Potluck 5:30pm

Oldtime Fiddle with Riley Calcagno "We will dive into old time fiddling, investigating how to be relaxed fiddlers that drive a jam or band. I find that having a fluid bow arm opens up a lot of groove potential, so we’ll work on a little technique along with some common bowing patterns that gives tunes life. We will then learn a tune together, listening to an older recording and trying to glean the special bits. Lastly, we’ll talk about how to get better on your own, learn tunes, and develop a style that feels comfortable!"

Getting the Most Out of a Song w/ Vivian Leva 
"There are three things I like to consider when choosing and singing a song: what makes it special, how to get the most out of it, and how to make it my own. In this workshop we'll identify what makes a song interesting: melodies, harmonies, ornamentation, rhythm, and phrasing. We'll work on recreating those nuances, through both listening and singing. We'll also get creative, adding our own individual touches. We might sing songs from old-time, country, and/or bluegrass repertoires. There might even be some duets and harmony singing!"
