Pete’s Posse will conduct a master class and workshop with the Just Desserts Contra Dance band. The focus will be on Just Desserts, but the workshop is open to interested musicians. Call Mike and Pat to discuss.
Vermont’s own trad-roots power trio! Composed of acclaimed musician Pete Sutherland, his talented protégé Oliver Scanlon and the uber-dynamic Tristan Henderson, Pete’s Posse never fails to surprise and excite! Twin fiddles in tight, wild harmony over high-powered guitar and pounding foot percussion with mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jaw harp, rocking keyboards, and soaring vocal harmonies adding color to the Posse’s sonic landscape.
With a steady flow of powerful uplifting energy that spans their age gap, they tap into many traditions from the north to south, and east to west, to distill a distinct sound that is completely their own. The Boston Irish Reporter recently proclaimed the Posse puts forth a “kaleidoscope of sounds and styles with equal parts amiability and energy.”
