DiTrani Brothers, Jason Scaggs at Next Stage on Jan. 6

Next Stage Arts and Twilight Music present roots, ragtime, and jazz quartet DiTrani Brothers plus Jatoba's multi-instrumentalist /singer Jason Scaggs at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill, on Saturday, Jan. 6, at 7:30 p.m.

DiTrani Brothers play "bent melodies and driving rhythms, play perilous tunes for the hopeful, with elements of Balkan music and early American jazz/swing," notes a news release. "They deliver both wistful and raucous performances at venues ranging from The House of Blues in New Orleans to DIY backyard stages."

Originally from North Bend, Washington, brothers Bobby and Walker DiTrani say they began writing songs together while traveling across the country, playing music on the streets. Since then, they've recorded two albums and toured throughout the U.S. with drummer Eddie Gaudet. Now a quartet with acoustic bassist Benjamin Richards, they've just released their third album, Dust Harvest.

Jason Scaggs's music began in the heart of Appalachia, his home state of Virginia, "and that mountain sensibility shines through his music to this day," say organizers. "The twang of his guitar, much more assertive in his Jatoba days, has since been tempered with the addition of effects and looping to create an indie flavor and full sound which belies it coming from one person."

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and $10 for access to the concert livestream. Advance tickets are available at Next Stage will provide a beer, wine, and cocktail cash bar. For more information, call 802-387-0102.
