Petes Posse is Vermonts own trad-roots power trio, composed of acclaimed Vermont musician Pete Sutherland, his talented protégé Oliver Scanlon, and the uber-dynamic Tristan Henderson.|
With a steady flow of powerful uplifting energy that spans their age gap, they tap into many traditions from the north to south, and east to west, to distill a distinct sound that is completely their own. Quebec newspaper Le Devoir proclaimed, This Vermont band embodies all the beauty of American roots music.
Since 2014 the Posse has racked up over 150,000 miles of touring, released 5 albums, and played numerous festivals including Shetland Folk Festival, Old Songs Festival, New Bedford Folk Festival, and more!
The Posses signature is variety: all multi-instrumentalists, the band plays a dynamic repertoire of folk-roots genres; songs and tunes, traditional and original. For over four years theyve been bringing their brand of neo-traditional roots music to festival stages and concert series across the US, Canada and Europe.
Seattle Folklore Society is very excited to welcome the trio to our concert stage!

tradition mixed with innovation The understanding to build on the foundation of musical heritage coupled with the freedom to reflect its depths through outright invention and creation thats what you get. Tom Franks, Folkwords, UK
