☼ ☼ ☼ Kim Wallach & Andy Davis ‘Songs About Place’ | Nelson Town Hall

August 4 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

We are excited to kick off Nelson Old Home Week with a concert featuring Kim Wallach and Andy Davis at the Nelson Town Hall on Sunday August 4 at 3:00 pm. Kim and Andy have been music educators for years in their respective states of New Hampshire and Vermont and both are committed to promoting traditional dance and music in their communities. The concert will feature songs they have collected or written celebrating life on each side of the river that separates us physically but not culturally. This will be a FREE concert presented in conjunction with Nelson in Common. Donations accepted.

Kim Wallach is a seasoned performer with an extensive repertoire of original songs, traditional ballads and other gems. While she loves singing harmony, she happily takes the lead at a solo concert, accompanying herself on guitar, banjo and piano. She tells stories about the songs and sometimes really bad jokes and has mostly stopped threatening to send you to the office if you talk during the concert.

Andy Davis plays accordion, piano and banjo, as well as calling dances. Andy taught music for 32 in Windham County Vermont, helped create New England Dancing Masters—publishers of traditional dance books and recordings—and performed with Nowell Sing We Clear for many years. Andy has appeared as a dance musician, leading dance and song at many well-known traditional music and dance camps throughout the United States.

Andy’s songs are inspired by local stories, American history, dear friends, farmers, pub singers, dance callers, sailors on the high seas, political turmoil and environmental concerns. Anecdotes from his years of teaching music have found their way into these songs that reflect on life in New England – and beyond.
