The Ballroom Thieves
The Ballroom Thieves
Roots-music trio Ballroom Thieves plays a captivating mélange of acoustic styles, blending folk conventions with modern hymnals, classical textures, and Delta blues grit with rich harmonies. They describe themselves as “a rock band disguised as a folk band,” and indeed they occasionally go electric in a way that reminds a listener of White Stripes or Tarbox Ramblers.

Guitarist Martin Earley, percussionist Devin Mauch, and cellist Calin Peters share lead vocals among them, adding gorgeous harmonies and fluid instrumentals to their original compositions. The band has shared the stage with bands like the Lone Bellow, Houndmouth, and fellow New Englanders Dispatch over the last couple of years.
Zack Dupont
Zack Dupont
Zack Dupont is a Burlington, VT-based independent songwriter and guitarist. Active since 2008 (w/ The Dupont Brothers & Japhy Ryder), music has led him all over North America to festivals like SXSW, The Cambridge River Fest, The Shigawake Agricultural Fair and Music Festival and Grand Point North. Poetic lyrical imagery, finger-style guitar work, looping rhythms and drones with free form improvisation make for each set to be unique to the moment.



“Simply put, Dupont is an elite guitarist. Here and throughout the album, his attention to dynamic subtlety — in addition to immaculate technical polish and engaging melody lines — is remarkable. Similarly, Dupont’s vocal performance is intimate, nuanced and affecting. He appears to take as much care with his hushed delivery as he does with his impressively understated guitar work. Each of his talents works fully in concert with the others. Imagine M. Ward collaborating with Iron and Wine. The word you’re looking for is, sublime.” -Dan Bolles, Seven Days VT
