Acoustic singer-songwriters Carl Goulet and Carl Beverly play an intimate early-evening show at Stage 33 Live in Bellows Falls on September 8.
BELLOWS FALLS — Carl Goulet’s artist page on the Thunder Ridge Records website says that he “flies a little under the radar,” and this is true — he’s a hidden gem, and this is a rare opportunity. The Daily UV said that his 2017 full-length, Gazebo, “charms the listener with gentle melodies yet packs a punch with the depth of wisdom and love hidden inside.” His label offers this spot-on analysis: “[his] songwriting follows in the footsteps of other honest, sometimes political and always heart-centric songwriters like David Mallet, Bruce Cockburn, and Gordon Lightfoot.” The clarity and purity of his writing and performing is seldom matched.
Carl Beverly has perfected a distinctive rhythmic finger-picking style that grooves without straying far from his solid folk grounding. His writing is strong, personal, and relatable, and his passion for songcraft led him to form the Brook House Songwriters’ Circle in Warner, New Hampshire, providing community and inspiration to other local songwriters. In addition to his solo work, he also plays in the trio Picket Hill.
Door at 6:00 PM, music at 7:00 on Sunday, September 8 — a suggested donation of $5+ at the door. Seating is limited to 40, first-come first-served. There’s also plenty of standing room; attendees may bring their own camp-style seating if they wish.
The listening event will be recorded and filmed.
