Jake Swamp and The Pine plus Derek Sensale at Stage 33 Live

BELLOWS FALLS — There will be a special co-headline matinee concert with Americana Act of the Year nominee Jake Swamp and The Pine, plus Derek Sensale of Pinedrop at Stage 33 Live on Sunday, Jan. 8, at 3 p.m.

Jake Swamp and The Pine is Drew Zieff: “one guy with a beard, a guitar, a voice, foot-stomping percussion, and gumption,” says a news release. It continues, “his live shows seamlessly ebb and flow between the energy of a full band and the intimacy of a singer-songwriter, with songs ranging from powerful acoustic anthems to knee-slapping hoedowns to slow and somber waltzes.”

(1)Zeiff is a New England Music Awards nominee for Americana Act of the Year and Roots Act of the Year, and a Boston Music Awards nominee for Americana Act of The Year and Vocalist of The Year. This show will be a stop on his Simpson and Banks album release tour, and is scheduled just a few days before his performance at the Rockwood Music Hall in New York City.

Sensale, the driving force behind the Brattleboro-based string band Pinedrop, will play original folk songs rooted in tradition. Since 2019, he's been keeping a relatively low profile writing and starting a family, and Stage 33 Live is honored to be part of his return to public performance.

Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Seating is limited; the event will be recorded and filmed. Masks are optional, but this may change without notice. Those experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms are asked to stay home.

Stage 33 Live is a casual and intimate industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performances and presentations of original material. More info about the nonprofit, all-volunteer project, and this and other upcoming events is available at
