Internationally celebrated singer-songwriter Rupert Wates to perform in Bellows Falls

BELLOWS FALLS—On Sunday, Nov. 10, Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge St., will host the final East Coast date of Rupert Wates before his tour heads to the Southern states. Local favorite Josh Maiocco opens.

England-born and Oxford University-educated, Wates has released nine acclaimed solo CDs. Since he relocated to the U.S., two tribute albums to his material have been made by musicians in Nashville and Los Angeles, and he has won dozens of songwriting awards.

He has been a full-time songwriter since the late 1990s, when he signed an exclusive publishing deal with London-based Eaton Music.

Wates prefers the intimacy of up-close audiences in small listening rooms rather than large venues and festivals to perform his eclectic mix of acoustic, melodic art/folk flavored with jazz, vaudeville, and cabaret.

Doors open at 6 p.m., music starts at 7 p.m. Advance tickets are $15 and available online at A chair is guaranteed until 40 tickets are sold. Tickets are $20 at the door; if any chairs behind the reserved rows are available on show day, they will be available on a first-come first-served basis.

Attendees may bring their own portable seating to set up behind the house chairs or to use in place of their reserved chair. Coffee, soda, water, and snacks will be available for a donation.
