Spencer Lewis will be preforming at Vermont’s hidden mountain meadow music venue in Barnard, VT Feast & Field on June 7th. Lewis has played for Fable Farm from their humble CSA pick-up beginning’s at their original location in Barnard town adding a ’60’s folk vibe’ to the original gatherings. This concert also marks Lewis’ 30th Anniversary of his record label Quartz Recordings and first release Weeding the Garden.
Lewis will be playing his folk and folk that rocks with host of friend’s to help showcase a variety of Spencer’s musical incarnations. For starters, there will be a sampling of his best selling guitar and violin instrumental music, for which he is most known for. The performance will then switch to his folk -singer-songwriter roots with his old friend the “The Songfinder” Kevin Ladden playing some Blaze Foley and his quirky originals. Andy Mueller from Haywire will bring his soulful vocals mandolin and fiddle for an Americana set. Long time collaborator Scott Paulson will play bass and cajon - reprising music from the live studio gem Song of Stone and a host of other albums he has worked on with Spencer. Eric Graham plays both fretless and fretted electric bass to complement a folk that rocks set including some of the music from Lewis’ latest album New Years Ramble. There will be a few more surprises in the evening but the wild card is one of Vermont’s hidden secrets: Rudy Dauth, music sideman extraordinaire who plays bass, electric / acoustic guitars and mandolin with equal virtuosity. Rudy hails from Spencer’s former stomping grounds up north in Waterville and currently plays with pop-rocker Chad Hollister.
