The iconic Vermont band, Will Patton Ensemble, crosses the pond to perform at Weatherwatch Farm in Saranac on Sunday, August 21 at 4 p.m. The show will take place rain or shine under a large tent on the lawn; $20 admission at the gate. Current public health guidelines will be followed.
The Will Patton Ensemble famously serves up “an astoundingly rich musical stew flavored with jazz, choro, folk, and other influences…. a unique blend of musicality, passion and respect sets this band apart as a special experience,” as stated in Mandolin Magazine. Here is the recipe: Combine a jazz/choro mandolinist with a symphony violinist who plays bluegrass and hot swing; add a string bass player who came of age working the Chicago blues clubs with the likes of Howlin’ Wolf and Buddy Guy; a lifelong guitarist equally at home with flatpicking fiddle tunes and fiery Gypsy jazz solos; and spice it up with a first-call jazz/Brazilian percussionist. Stir in a little rock ‘n’ roll attitude and season for twenty years in small clubs and large concert halls and you get some idea of the music of the Will Patton Ensemble.
