WARDSBORO, Vt. – The Gail Wade Trio performs Saturday, Sept. 29 as part of Wardsboro Curtain Call’s 2018 Music Series.
Drawing from the deep roots of folk, bluegrass, and classic country music, The Gail Wade Trio presents an eclectic blend of both traditional and original acoustic music. A strong guitarist and songwriter with a rich soulful voice, Wade has been performing both solo and with her own band in the U.S. and abroad for the past 30 years. Her early folk influences bring a warmth and depth to her songwriting, engulfing the listener in the deep emotion of everyday life experiences. Acoustic bass player Joe DeLillo’s stunning tenor vocals are a familiar high, lonesome sound to followers of the New England bluegrass scene. Whether singing lead or harmony vocals, DeLillo’s emotive delivery and driving bass playing are an integral part of the trio’s sound. A gifted multi-instrumentalist, Tim St. Jean rounds out the trio with stunning mandolin, banjo, and vocals. A much sought after musical virtuoso and gifted songwriter, St. Jean is a familiar face on the stages of New England’s premier music festivals. Through their stellar musicianship and deep friendship with one another, The Gail Wade Trio is sure to provide the audience an unforgettable musical experience.
