Nathan Evans Fox and Jane Kramer will be out on tour from North Carolina and will grace our stage for a rare Monday show on July 15. Door at 6:00, music at 7:00 — an early evening quality listening event. Suggested donation of $10 at the door for the performers to get them to the next show, more if you can. If it’s wicked hot out we’ll do it in the big room behind the stage, which has good AC and a lingering natural reverb that should nicely enhance this acoustic set.
Nathan Evans Fox from Glen Alpine, NC, grew up immersed in country, rock, bluegrass, and hymns. He synthesizes those roots in musical and narrative landscapes that confront the difficulties of his cultural and religious heritage with quiet grief, incisive anger, and unexpected wit. His second full-length, Texas Dust, was release this April.
Asheville-based Jane Kramer was described by a UK music reviewer as sounding like she was “…born to gypsy poets and raised by Emmylou Harris.” With deep roots in Appalachian musical traditions, culture, and lore, Kramer’s songs are introspective and gracefully gritty. Her performances are poignant and engaging, accessible, warm, and often hilarious. Her third album, Valley of The Bones, was released this March.
Nathan and Jane will play both separately and together.
33 Bridge Street is an accessible space. We have 40 chairs, first-come first-served. The listening event will be recorded and filmed — your likeness or voice may be incidentally documented; your presence is your permission.
33 Bridge Street is a couple blocks toward the river from the only intersection in downtown Bellows Falls, which is the corner of Flat Iron Exchange coffeehouse and Popolo restaurant. And it’s a T so there’s no way to take a wrong turn. Stage 33 Live is in a brick building on the right after the post office and over the little bridge. Look for the giant stylized sheep-heads in the corner windows; that’s the community radio station, WOOL-FM. The most reliable parking is in the free lot across the street, next to the canal.
Stage 33 Live invites the public to listening events that are recorded and filmed for radio, TV, and the internet. It’s a volunteer run nonprofit on a mission to help local and regional talented and knowledgeable people reach wider audiences on multiple platforms. The stage is also open to established performers and presenters, because their participation helps bring attention to others still getting their foot in the door. We aren’t a bar, club, restaurant, or venue with regular hours. We’re also not a plush theater or a state-of-the-art facility. We’re just good folks doing this fine thing — the homegrown love child of Tiny Desk Concerts, TED Talks, Science Friday, Midnight Special, and The Little Rascals.
Stage 33 Live allows only original material.
