Northern Homespun is a string band based in Poultney, Vermont, playing Americana music featuring rich vocal harmonies and a down-home feel. While the band’s members found each other through the Poultney Bluegrass Society, they have roots in many musical traditions, some more obvious than others. In addition to drawing from bluegrass, old time, gospel, country, and folk music, if you listen closely you may hear influences from Eastern European and Celtic traditions, and maybe even a little Argentine tango, jamgrass, or some good old rock-n-roll. The members of Northern Homespun have played in a number of bands around the country, from the Barley Shakers, Doc Holler, and County Down to Boston’s own Snuffy Smith, and even a couple local bands, Sandhill and Spruce Knob Uprising. They include Rick Lillegard, Pamela Burlingame, Chad Clifford, Jason Weinstein, and Laird Christensen—though they’ve also been known to bring along an extra friend or two on occasion.

Strangled Darlings

This sounds promising…

“Strangled Darlings have created a brand of swampy, darkly grooving, foot stomping music.”
Anchorage Press

George Veech: vocals, mandolin, harmonica
Jessica Anderly: vocals, tenor bass, foot drums/percussion­­­­­­­

Jess is a trained classical violinist but picked up cello and discovered that she was actually a bass player. George found his degree in English Lit pays better as an indie musician and so learned the mandolin. They have written and toured as a full band but once they decided to tour the US full time and in a 20 foot RV, there was only enough extra room for the little dog.

The music is built on deep sense of rhythm and groove, carried by George on mandolin and Jess on custom tenor bass & foot drums. His mandolin bursts out in a slalom of notes and snare drum rhythms. Her solid body custom tenor bass weaves an intricate counter melody and her feet pound a percussive groove.  The voices and the lyrics are the hidden third member of the band and the story behind the music. The songs work with nontraditional subjects for inspiration. Some song subjects include: the works of great authors (Faulkner, William Blake, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Donald Bartheleme, Anna Ahkmatova) as well as witchcraft in the Civil War, the morality of Somali piracy and the media impact of Neil Armstrong.

Strangled Darlings have released 3 full length albums and one EP, receiving critical praise from local and national press alike.  In between touring, they live in South Londonderry, Vermont.
