Saturday, April 21 at 8 PM: The Vermont Bluegrass Pioneers!
The Michele Fay Band features original and Americana music that brings forth a comfortable groove of folk, swing, and bluegrass-influenced songs that are woven seamlessly together. Michele’s heart-felt lyrics are central to the ensemble, as she sings with a clear, authentic voice accompanied by guitar and banjo. Tim Price adds ideal melodic instrumentals on mandolin and guitar, while Kalev Freeman works his “lilting” fiddle. Michael Santosusso provides tenor harmonies and drives a dynamic beat with upright bass.
Her “crack backing band”, a perfect match for Michele’s talent as a singer-songwriter, adds to the charm and sincerity of these songs without detracting from their earnest messages. Their repertoire provides a mix of understated originals and well-placed traditional covers, played and sung with relaxed polish, personality and taste.
The band’s performances are both energetic and unpretentious, appealing to a wide range of audience. Its growing musicianship is increasingly being well received throughout the region as it continues to gather its well-deserved recognition.
Seven Days Magazine comments on Michele’s 2015 CD Believe:
“On the newly released Believe, The Michele Fay Band serves up a suite of material that plays exclusively to their front woman’s best assets. With a mix of understated originals and well-placed traditional covers, played and sung with relaxed polish, personality and taste, the record is easily the band’s strongest to date.” More can be found out at www.michelefayband.com
