The Verbing Nouns are a tight brother-sister folk duo from Burlington, VT. The songs, all penned by Micah Plante recall a great deal of folk music through history, with rollicking finger style guitar laying the bedrock for stories of industry, heartbreak, success, and modern apathy. His sister Sarah weaves delicate and unique harmony through each yarn, blurring the line between melody and harmony to lend the audience a common voice that is at once mournful and sweet. Always endeavoring to stretch the well worn and loved chain of genre, The Verbing Nouns will bring you a certain sound that can't be heard anywhere else.
Alicia Phelps is a singer songwriter based out of Portland ME, but born and raised in the Burlington, VT area. Playing piano and singing from the age of five, she found her voice through music and has been plunking away ever since. The winner of 2010's Burlington First Night Rising Star Competition, Alicia has gone on to perform in venues such as Elly Long Music Center, The Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, and for the Vermont Council On World Affairs. You'll hear a mix of jazz standards sent straight from the swing era and originals with a new-age flair. Influences include Gretchen Parlato, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Bill Evans, Chet Baker, and Dexter Gordon.

The Leatherbound Books
The Leatherbound Books forge a uniquely inspired, poppy blend of danceable folk music which radiates both a sense of universality, and artistic amplitude. At the core of the Burlington, Vermont based band, casually sits singer/songwriter/guitarist, Eric Daniels. Daniels' brilliantly catchy and inherently honest songwriting is seamlessly augmented by the angelic vocal contributions of singer/songwirter, Jackie Buttolph. Together, what they create on stage is a refreshingly transparent snapshot into the soul of the band's expressive foundation and fun-loving nature. Daniels and Buttolph are in good company; Tuck Hanson's fiery, innovative fiddle work soars over the driving, stomp-worthy groundwork of drummer Charlie Smyrk and bassist Jamie Bright.
