We had a fantastic time last year, and will be performing again in Poultney, Vermont, for Stone Valley Arts' 2nd Fridays Summer Concert Series. We will be playing in the art gallery on the ground floor, then moving upstairs for some traditional French and Québécois dances, under Lausanne Allen's masterful direction. A good time will be had by all! Set your GPS for: 145 E Main St, Poultney, VT 05764
Va-et-vient is delighted to perform in a new series of live music on the Bristol Trail, near 110 Airport Drive, in Bristol, VT 05443, held each second Sunday of the month. There will be chairs and refreshments, and we'll be playing under a tent (happy to make room for you if the weather threatens!). A grant has been secured, so this is a free event. Come and enjoy an early summer hike on the beautiful trail, and plan to sit a spell at the beginning, ending, or both ends of your hike pour chanter avec nous !
