SHADY RILL - PATTI CASEY AND TOM MACKENZIE
Patti Casey and Tom MacKenzie are two of central Vermont’s musical gems. Separately they have been entertaining folks around the country as members of many different groups. They were two thirds of the Woods Tea Company for three years until that bands recent retirement. Together they explore everything from French Canadian dance tunes, to Tin Pan Alley, to Old Time Country, and a healthy dose of originals.
Patti is an award winning songwriter and her voice will melt your heart. Tom’s Banjo and voice are a perfect compliment, as the two of them weave their way through the many styles of traditional based songs and tunes. You will leave one of their performances with toes tapping and a smile on your face.
With careers that collectively span decades and richly diverse musical influences that stretch from the British Isles to deep Appalachia, Tom and Patti breathe new depth and present a refreshing take on traditional acoustic music. They will happily make your event shine, or charm any audience with their Hammered Dulcimer, Flute, Banjo, Guitar, Keyboard, Ukulele, seated clogging, and fine humor.
