VAIL — Acclaimed musicians Stephanie Bettman and Luke Halpin return to Vail to play a concert at the Vail Public Library at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Bettman and Halpin’s music is new and catchy, an engaging mixture of folk, roots, bluegrass and jazz, with memorable lyrics and killer instrumentation. The two of them raise the roof with their soaring harmonies and foot-tapping fiddles.
Bettman is an accomplished writer, singer and fiddler. Her lyrics are infused with wit and wisdom, poetry and insight. Vocally, she draws comparison to the soaring soprano of Joan Baez and the plaintive emotion of Emmylou Harris. Halpin is a renowned multi-instrumentalist. He is a master of the guitar and the mandolin, impressive on fiddle and banjo and adept at nearly anything he picks up. Halpin draws inspiration from the likes of Sam Bush, Mark O’Connor and Tony Rice.
Together, Bettman and Halpin are fast earning a reputation for hypnotizing performances filled with irresistible lyrics, transcendent harmonies and roof-raising instrumentals. They have been a featured act at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, as well as several performing arts centers throughout the Western and Southwestern United States.
Their music creates an eclectic sound that takes the listener from up-tempo, down-home fiddling, to soulful sorrowful ballads, to super hooky folk-pop with catchy melodies and lyrics that will stick with you long after the concert is over.
This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call 970-479-2187.
