Raise the Roof Concert: Big Woods

Big Woods Voices 2018-17 full size.jpeg

When: October 14 (Sunday); 4 pm

Where: Gethsemane Church, Proctorsville

Cost: $10

Description: Four voices, powerful medicine.  That's one way to describe Big Woods, the Vermont a cappella quartet of performers with a shared passion for close harmonies.  These veteran singers, musicians and composers will perform in Proctorsville's Raise the Roof concert series on Sunday October 14 at Gethsemane Church.  The pristine acoustics of the 1895 wooden church create the perfect setting for a cappella voices, making the music of Big Woods feel like hearing poetry on the wing.

 The group unites their diverse talents to perform music from traditions around the world and American roots genres---from heart stopping to foot stomping.   Big Woods is made up of Will Danforth, singer-songwriter and traditional acoustic artist; Becky Graber, director of the Brattleboro Women's Chorus and Animaterra Women's Chorus; Amanda Witman, founder of the wildly popular Brattleboro Pub Sing; and Alan Blood longtime bass singer for the Blanche Moyse Chorale, I Cantori and House Blend.  

 The concert begins at 4:00 at Gethsemane Church at 89 Depot Street.  Admission is $10.00 at the door.  What better way to spend a late fall Sunday afternoon.
