Where: Gethsemane Church, off Depot St in Proctorsville

Cost: $10

More Information:  On Sunday February 15 Becky & the Murphy Boys will light up Gethsemane Church in Proctorsville for the last Raise the Roof concert of the season. A musical family from southern Vermont that is well known on the concert and contra dance circuit, they are a rich musical mix of fiddle, piano, guitar, mandolin, French Canadian style foot percussion and vocals. Becky Tracy and Keith Murphy are dynamic performers of traditional music from Newfoundland, Quebec, Ireland, France and beyond. Between them they have been part of the bands Nightengale, Childsplay, Assembly and Wild Asparagus, and have each recorded their own solo albums. Keith, a native of Newfoundland, is an accomplished composer whose work was recently featured on the Ken Burns documentary about the Roosevelts. Becky, who has fiddling in her blood, is classically trained and later studied Irish and French Canadian fiddle styles with some of the masters. She was the featured soloist with the New Hampshire Symphony Orchestra in their performance of Evan Chambers' Fiddle Concerto. For their special performance in Proctorsville they will be joined by their 13 year-old son Aiden, a budding fiddler. Gethsemane Church is on Depot St. next to Crows Bakery Cafe. The concert begins at 4:00 p.m. and admission is $10 at the door. Spice up your late winter afternoon with a concert that promises to be a foot tapping, shimmy shakin' good time.
