Vermont made folk-americana from the exciting duo known as The DuPont Brothers. They have been tearing it up with recent performances up the street at sister club Toad and we figured it's about time to get them on a bigger stage... er, carpets - so here they are releasing their latest CD at the Lizard Lounge! French-American newcomer Francesca Blanchard opens the show with her unique voice and songs that reflect her bilingual, multicultural upbringing.
Two brothers reunite after years of geographical separation by a fortified collaboration in music. Blending the contemplative winters of the northeast with the solitary beauty of southwestern desert, Sam and Zack DuPont are now coconspirators in a shared passion that runs deep in their family. This Burlington Vermont made duo has hit the ground running since the formation of the group in March of 2013. The brothers have recently shared the stage with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Ben Sollee, Gin Wigmore, Chris Thomas King, Langhorne Slim, Howie Day and The Lone Bellow to name a few. Lush finger-style guitar work is complimented by elegant prose and a vocal blend that could only be matched by blood relation. The sound is Vermont made Folk-Americana.
"Together the DuPont Brothers resonate at just the right frequency. There were moments that honestly gave me chills."
-Dan Bolles, Seven Days
Francesca Blanchard is a young French-American singer-songwriter whose lyrics and melodies reflect her bilingual, multicultural upbringing. Blanchard was born and raised in France and traveled the globe with her family before settling in the small town of Charlotte in beautiful rural Vermont. Her music reflects on her travels, both physical and emotional. Francesca's EP "Songs On An Ovation" features a collection of songs in French and English played on her mother's Ovation guitar. She will be recording her first full-length album of original songs in August of 2014.
"Blanchard's debut EP, Songs on an Ovation, is quietly and profoundly stunning. It is a humble ode to love, heartbreak and home that says more about all three topics in the span of 17 minutes than some songwriters do over entire careers. A remarkable debut." - Dan Bolles, Seven Days
