Folk performer will come to Grafton

GRAFTON — Spencer Lewis offers a concert with solo guitar and violin at Grafton's historic Brick Meeting House on Saturday, Oct. 7, playing three sets from 1 to 4 p.m.

Lewis's music has been described by critics as "music that paints the rural landscape and quiets the mind." The Times Argus describes it as "a soothing blend of folk, pop, and classical influences where guitar and violin merge into an ambience of melody, with sounds building from ripples to brooks to rivers ending in oceans of music."

Lewis currently has 21 instrumental albums in the digital pipeline of iTunes and Spotify.

In the early 1970s, he started as a folksinger-songwriter in Wilmington, playing The Old Red Mill and Fat City, and he was the first one to play at The Common Ground in Brattleboro after convincing them they needed music.

Since then, he's performed at many farmers' markets, town greens, wedding receptions, and summer festivals "with his signature sound that reflects his love of Vermont and its rural traditions," say organizers. When he's not playing music or recording albums in his home studio, he works as a stone waller based in Bethel.

In addition to the concert, other activities at the Brick Meeting House during Indigenous Peoples Weekend include the Grafton Firefighters 42nd Tag Sale, a Community Pig Roast, and the Grafton Coronet Band Concert.

Admission to the concert is free. The Brick Meeting House is ADA compliant. For more information, visit or call 323-627-4625.
