BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Growing up in Cavendish and Chester, Vt., Kate Lorenz began singing when she learned to talk. She hasn’t stopped since, and will be bringing her powerhouse voice and tight, three piece band to the stage at Popolo in Bellows Falls on Thursday, March 15. Doors open at 7 p.m. Michael Roberts of Wooden Dinosaur hits the stage at 7:45 p.m. and Kate and the Constellations go on at 8:15 p.m. The original Feb. 7 show date was cancelled due to weather.
Lorenz formed the acclaimed, nationally touring folk-rock band Rusty Belle with her brother Matt Lorenz (the Suitcase Junket) in 2006 and has recorded with fellow folk artists Chris Smither, Jeffrey Foucault, Caitlin Canty, Hayward Williams, the Suitcase Junket, and Zak Trojano.
Lorenz currently lives in western Massachusetts and performs with her rock-n-roll band Kate Lorenz and the Constellations (Ben Falkoff, Max Adam, and Don McAulay) and with the Southern Vermont honky-tonk band, the Rear Defrosters. Her voice has been compared to the gritty howls of Etta James and Janis Joplin and the tender country soul of Patsy Cline.
Lorenz’s much-anticipated first solo album, “Sing When Lonely,” was released in January.
