The Vacationer Series
Tuesday August 15 at 8:00 pm
Briggs Opera House, White River Junction, VT
The red-haired, California-based singer-songwriter Brett Dennen has come a long way since 2005, when he gave shy, barefoot solo performances around the release of his first album. Now on his sixth, Por Favor, this folk-pop singer/songwriter and self-proclaimed “Wild Child” has taken the music scene by storm.
With a knack for hooky melodies and joyful lyrics, Dennen has made a name for himself, and is “capable of cranking out big, beautiful pop songs…capturing both the ornate and the simple” (NPR). He creates “nimble grooves, creamy choruses, and vocal performances of immediacy and genuine feeling…carefree soulfulness that recalls Van Morrisson” (Paste Magazine).
Dennen is also a social activist striving for equality and peace – topics which find their way into his song lyrics along with themes of vulnerability and forgiveness.
Doors open 7pm. Show 8pm.
- Advance Tickets $35
