Crooked Still - Putney,VT

Last weekend we just wanted to get out of New Haven and go do something interesting. One idea was to go see a show in New York - perhaps The Phantom Of The Opera on Broadway. We searched our various resources and found that Crooked Still were playing a show in Vermont. We had seen them play at a bluegrass festival 2 years ago. On Friday we booked tickets and a place to stay. The next day we headed north to Putney, Vermont, a tiny town a few miles north of Brattleboro. We had dinner in a Scottish pub and headed over to the show which was just next door.Sam Amidon was the warm up act and was good, if not a little strange.
Aoife O'Donovan is Crooked Still's lead singer. We really like her name. There was probably a total of 200 people at the show in the small auditorium. I definitely recommend seeing them if you get the chance.Here's a video that someone else took at a festival in 2007.

As we were in Vermont and the weather was good, we headed up a mountain on Sunday.
As you can see in the distance, It's still cold enough in Vermont for the ski slopes to have snow.
