BELLOWS FALLS Nathan Evans Fox (of GA) and Jane Kramer (of NC): Fox and Kramer will play both separately and together. Fox is a multi-instrumentalist storyteller who blends his musical roots of country, rock, bluegrass, and hymns into landscapes that confront his cultural and religious heritage with quiet grief, incisive anger, unexpected wit. Frequent themes of family, place, and love come out in ways that are both familiar and strange. Kramer has been described as "born to gypsy poets and raised by Emmylou Harris." With deep roots in Appalachian musical traditions, culture, and lore, her introspective songs are gracefully gritty, poignant, and engaging. Her third album, Valley of The Bones, was released this March. Local up-and-comer Nick Badaracco opens. 7 p.m. (doors open 6 pm). Seating is limited to 40, first-come first-served; however, chairs front-and-center will be reserved for those who make their entry donation in advance online.
