Saturday, June 3, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—Deb Brisson and the Hay Burners are a group of veteran Addison County performers, led by Brisson’s powerful, expressive vocals, who make their Brandon Music debut Saturday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. Their songs are real and heartfelt, ranging from soulful and bluesy to rocking alt-country. With an album of original music, “Heart-Shaped Stone,” to its credit, the band plays a mix of its own work and favorite covers by artists such as Natalie Merchant, Alabama Shakes, Coldplay, the Talking Heads and more.
Backing Brisson’s guitar and vocals are Pelletier on guitar and vocals, Wallace on drums, Carl Boss on bass and vocals, and Doug Wilhelm on congas, percussion and harmonica.
“I think if I had to pick a genre for our music, it would be Americana,” Brisson said — “but it really is a little bit of everything. I think the sound is becoming distinctive. Mark’s Telecaster style brings that country ‘chicken picken’ sound on top of the driving bass and percussion. I think my vocal style changes a bit from song to song, but I’ve always gravitated to a soulful, passionate feel. I love music, I feel it deeply and I want the crowd to feel it as well. I think that comes through with this group.”
Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.
