Duo to perform at Wardsboro Curtain Call
WARDSBORO- Wardsboro Curtain Call presents Patty Carpenter and special guest Verandah Porche on Saturday, September 21, at 7 pm in Wardsboro Town Hall.
They will be performing old favorites and new original songs. The two women have been life-long friends and collaborators and the new songs represent some of their work together since the 2010 release of their CD “Come Over.”
Carpenter sings with a number of bands around New England as well as in New York City. These include Patty and the Cakes, The Patty Carpenter Jazz Band, and the Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band (DFJB), a Brooklyn- based collective with four family members. She studied jazz at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, with the great Archie Shepp and Max Roach, and was heavily influenced by many great women artists from Joan Baez and Roseanne Cash to Billie Holiday and Carmen McRae.
Porche has published “Sudden Eden” (Verdant Books), “The Body’s Symmetry” (Harper and Row), and “Glancing Off” (See Through Books), and has pursued an alternative literary career, creating collaborative writing projects in nontraditional settings. The Vermont Arts Council presented her with its Award of Merit in 1998, and its first Ellen McCulloch-Lovell Award in Arts Education in 2015. Marlboro College awarded her an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters in 2012.
All shows are in the Wardsboro Town Hall Café on Main Street, and feature excellent refreshments and BYOB.
Doors open at 6:30 pm. Music begins at 7 pm. Admission is $10 at the door.
The final show in WCC’s 2019 music series is on Saturday, October 19, at 7 pm, featuring rockabilly hall-of-famer, Marty Wendell.
