STOWE, VT. – The Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center Presents Suzanne Vega on February 24 and Blackberry Smoke on February 25, both shows at 8pm.
Tickets available online at http://www.sprucepeakarts.org/events-ticket/events/
Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s when, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, she sang what has been labeled contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs.
Atlanta based Blackberry Smoke continues to grow into the premiere Southern Rock band of America. Over the last 12 months they have shared the stage with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Shooter Jennings, Cross Canadian Ragweed and countless others. They strike the right balance between the original purveyors of Southern Rock and the legitimate second-generation revivalists.
