Breanna Elaine performs at Stage 33

BELLOWS FALLS — Breanna Elaine will play the Stage 33 Live listening room at 33 Bridge St., on Sunday, May 29, at 7 p.m.

Favorably compared to Jewel, Alanis Morissette, and Stevie Nicks, Elaine has been “making waves with her unique sound and strong songwriting: earthy folk with rock, jazz, and occasional punk underpinnings,” say organizers.

Born and raised in Brattleboro, Elaine played violin and bass and sang in a band that performed at soup kitchens for the homeless.

She moved to Northampton, Mass., in her teen years. There, she played in several bands and sang in a choir that featured African folk music and other explorative genres. At 18, she moved to the Rutland area to care for her grandmother, bringing her lifelong passion for singing and songwriting with her.

This is an opportunity to catch Elaine in an intimate listening room performance before she graduates to bigger venues. Currently the COVID-19 protocol is that masks are optional, although that may change without notice. Seating will be a minimum of eight feet from the stage and set up in pods of two. If you wish to make a custom pod for your party, arrive early.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door, and all proceeds go to the performer. Seating is limited to 40 persons, and the performance will be recorded and filmed. More info about this nonprofit, all-volunteer project, and this and other upcoming events, is available online at
