The Cabot Folk Club Winter/Spring 2024 Season

Brett Hughes
Thursday, May 2nd at 7pm
Artists Website:  www.BrettHughesMusic

Pretty much everybody who follows the Burlington music scene knows who Brett Hughes is. He spent years hosting the ever-popular “Honky Tonk Tuesdays” at Radio Bean. The number of bands he has worked with over the years is staggering, including the Chrome Cowboys, Belle Pines, Cider House Boys, viperHouse, Mike Gordon And Ramble Dove, Whiskey Likkers, The Decentz, Fortune Tellers, All Fall Down and a great many more.


Brett sings with the pep, energy and tone that simply screams “bluegrass,” in all the best ways. While Brett is decades deep in the industry he still sings like its day one. He has cited a number of influences for his style, including George Jones, Merle Haggard, The Delmore Brothers, Bill Monroe, Johnny Cash and his own mother.

Here's a duet of Brett Hughes with Kat Wright

Fern Maddie 2.png

Fern Maddie is a balladeer-songwriter based in Montpelier. Her songs -- performed with clawhammer banjo, guitar, and clear, soulful vocals -- explore themes of trauma, grief, and renewal. Fern’s modern interpretations of traditional ballads have earned national and international acclaim: her debut album, Ghost Story, was named #2 of The Guardian’s Best Folk Albums of 2022 and was listed on NPR’s Best Roots Music of the year. 

Fern’s unique sound is the child of many influences: Old-Time string band music, the revivalist balladeers of the 60s and 70s, dark country, experimental folk-rock, and the modern trad renaissance(s). Her music has been compared to the work of June Tabor, Kate Rusby, Sharon Van Etten, Rhiannon Giddens, and Joni Mitchell. 

From Cabot, Dana Robinson is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who combines an openhearted singing style, with wry humor and astute observations about community and place.  


For over 30 years, Dana has been a fixture on the folk and acoustic music scene in the United States and Great Britain, playing his unique blend of contemporary songwriting with traditional influences. From performing at Carnegie Hall to providing music for Ken Burns’ documentaries, Dana's rich voice and landscape-inspired lyrics connect the listener to the world around us.


From 1995 to 2015 Dana logged over a million miles of touring across the United States and Great Britain, performing songs inspired by the American landscape. Dana continues to craft his blend of original songwriting and traditional music, bringing his unique voice to the canon of American songwriting. 


Dana’s most recent recording, “The Town That Music Saved,” features songs written in and around his home town of Cabot, Vermont, and captures the essence of modern rural life. 


Seven Days writes, “Dana is a master storyteller, spinning his yarns with the precise skill of an artisan loom weaver. 


 “Rural America explored with elegant simplicity. Their music and cleanly poetic songwriting bring to mind the great folksingers of our times.” Asheville Citizen-Times
