SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – The UU Coffeehouse will feature Woodchuck’s Revenge Saturday, March 16 at 7 p.m. The Woodchucks’ repertoire, which has been described as encyclopedic, ranges from New England fiddle tunes to modern cowboy songs, from Irish ballads to ’60s folk, blues, and bluegrass. Songs about Vermont, mountains, and life in New England are staple of the group’s performances, along with a healthy dose of humor and a small but growing number of originals.
The Woodchucks have performed throughout Vermont and the adjoining states and in Wyoming and Montana – at colleges, community events and festivals, in coffeehouses, summer concert series, country fairs, and bluegrass festivals as well as the New England Folk Festival and the Northeast Music, Arts and Dance Festival. They have performed on public radio in Vermont and New York, as well as local access television. Their audiences have included students, seniors, visitors to Vermont, historical re-enactors, and folk music fans of all ages.
All are welcome to attend. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; music starts at 7 p.m. This is a family-friendly evening of music and fun. There is no cost to enjoy the music, but there is a free-will offering and any money collected goes directly to support the featured performers. You will be able to purchase delicious snacks and beverages. UU Coffeehouse performances are held at the Meetinghouse at 21 Fairground Rd., in Springfield.
