Acoustic duo performs pop-up concert in Bristol
BRISTOL — The 5 Town Friends of the Arts second pop-up music event will feature Richard Ruane and Beth Duquette on Thursday, Oct. 17, 7 p.m., at Vermont Tree Goods on Main Street in Bristol. The show is one hour and admission is by free will donation.
Ruane and Duquette are a Vermont-based acoustic duo performing original music with a clear traditional-roots influence, but of it’s own time. They are known for their strong, imaginative vocals and harmonies, often compared to classic sibling harmony duos. Some of their original songs harken back to traditional ballads and jazz tunes from the ’30s, but also remain firmly rooted in life’s current challenges and joy.
Ruane sings and provides inventive instrumental backing on guitar, tenor guitar, mandolin and ukulele while Duquette contributes lead and inspired harmony vocals. Ruane and Duquette perform with a comfortable ease and audience rapport that comes from many years of collaboration and love of creating music together.
