Rusty DeWees to perform benefit show for Jamaica Community Arts Council

JAMAICA — Rusty DeWees returns with all new material to the historic Jamaica Town Hall on Saturday, Nov. 9. DeWees delivers an old-time traditional evening of entertainment with iconic Vermont humor that is “part comedian, part musician, all Yankee with a side of cussin' to amuse everyone ... almost,” according to a news release.

The Boston Globe has called DeWees “inventive, entertaining, and exceptional.” He was raised in Stowe, and lives up the road in Elmore. He has worked in every entertainment medium, including appearances in 30 films and television shows.

DeWees has toured New England for over 20 years in The Logger, his original one-man comedy show. The show combines stand-up and theater, incorporating ad-libs and country music with Rusty on guitar and vocals.

Tickets are $25 and are available at D&K General Store in Jamaica and at Meulemans' Craft Draughts in Rawsonville. Doors open at 6 p.m., with the show beginning at 7 p.m. Seating is limited, and the event is BYOB.

The show is presented by the Jamaica Community Arts Council, a nonprofit with a mission to bring live local arts and entertainment to the historic Jamaica Town Hall. To learn more, visit
