Mayfly comes full circle to play at Radio Bean in Burlington, VT! • Thursday, April 9th – 8pm Radio Bean, 8 N. Winooski Ave., Burlington, VT 05401 802-660-9346 Mayfly comes home, full circle, to Burlington, Vermont – playing at the venue that got them started 10 years ago! Mayfly – ‘old-time meets new folk, music intertwined with haunting melodies and southern fiddle tunes’. This Vermont based duo performs old-time New England and Appalachian music, as well as original songwriting on fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo and vocals. Julia Wayne of Charlotte, VT and Katie Trautz of Montpelier, VT have been playing music together for over 10 years, touring throughout New England and Canada. Mayfly intersperses close harmony vocals with strong instrumentals influenced by blues, ballads, and American roots music. Their 2007 album won ‘Best Traditional Album of the Year’ in the state of Vermont. The duo has performed alongside renowned traditional musicians from across the globe, including Swedish fiddler Anna Lindblad, Louisiana based musician Dirk Powell, and North Carolina’s Riley Baugus. Mayfly has also shared the stage with Crooked Still, David Boulanger, Sheesham and Lotus, Crowfoot, Pete Sutherland, Sheesham and Lotus, Bruce Molsky and other great bands and musicians at festivals in New England and Cananda. They have just released their second album as a duo, with the help of Dirk Powell, Louisiana based old-time and cajun musician. The album crosses genres and integrates the old with the new. Included on the album are a couple of shape-note hymns, original folk songs, a cappella close harmony, and old-time fiddle tunes with a banjo contribution by Dirk Powell. They bring to the record a maturity and grace easily recognized in the confidence of their voices. Mayfly will be touring on the East and West coasts to celebrate the release of the album.
