Stage 33 Live hosts singer/songwriter Lenny Solomon on Aug. 28

BELLOWS FALLS — Stage 33 Live hosts singer/songwriter/guitarist Lenny Solomon on Sunday, Aug. 28, at 4 p.m.

Solomon's style has been compared to early Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker. In the late '60s, say organizers, he “was a fixture at the fabled Idler Coffeehouse in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Mass., a training ground for songwriters like Geoff Bartley, Paul Rishell, Spider John Koerner, Bob McCarthy, and Ric Ocasek.”

During these years, he shared bills with many touring performers, including Chris Smither, Carolyn Hester, and Bonnie Raitt. He stepped off the circuit for a couple of decades to raise a family and work in environmental research, but kept honing his songwriting chops. He re-entered the performance arena in the late 1990s and has since released five albums and won a dozen songwriting awards.

Soundbyte Magazine wrote that “Lenny Solomon's vocals remind me most of John Prine, as does his writing, but there are also elements of the old country and western singers like Merle Travis, Stonewall Jackson, Roy Acuff, or Doc Watson.”

There is a suggested donation of $10 per person, and advance donations made through will have chairs saved for them. Walk-ups are also welcome. Seating is limited to 40. The event will be recorded and filmed.
