Summer Evenings with Vermont Treasures - Young Traditions Vermont: Showcase in three acts
The Meeting House on the Green and Young Traditions Vermont are proud to present:
Romy & Ben Munkres
Siblings Romy & Ben Munkreslive in Cornwall. They have participated in YTV Touring Group tours in Ireland, Cape Breton, Japan, Scotland, and metro New York/New Jersey. They won the 2018 Young Tradition Contest, held in early May each year. Both have participated in Fiddleheads, Trad Camp, showcases and other YTV projects. They have been playing music together and with their parents for over 8 years, and have participated in school music ensembles, the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association and the McFadden Academy of Irish Dance.
Duncan & Stokes
Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist/songwriter Ethan Stokesand fiddler David Duncan. Ethan was a finalist in the 2018 YTV contest and teaches with Mister Chris at Music for Sprouts. David won the contest several years ago with his band Pale Fire. Although childhood acquaintances, Duncan and Stokes began playing music as a duo in the Fall of 2018. They focus on Stokes’ original songs, punctuated with traditional Celtic medleys and American folk tunes, for a dynamic blend of soulfulness and energy.
The Zeichner Trio
Yasi, Oliver, and Louli Zeichner are three siblings who have grown up in the hills of central Vermont. They play traditional Irish and Old-Time/Appalachian music – Louli on 4 and 5 string banjos and Celtic harp, Oliver on penny whistle and uilleann pipes, and Yasi on fiddle. When they first began playing traditional music, they didn’t intend to become a family band. However, in 2012, they became involved with YTV and began to play music at festivals and benefit events across Vermont. Their first gig was at the Tunbridge History Expo, and since then the trio has played at the Burlington International Festival, the New World Festival, the Celebrate Vermont Festival in Stowe, the Big E in Springfield MA, and Farmer’s Night at the Vermont Statehouse.
