Direct from New York City, Ethan Lipton & His Orchestra will make an appearance at Main Street Arts in Saxtons River on Friday, May 7 at 8 p.m.
A favorite of New York's downtown club scene, Lipton and his group play a brand of Alternative Americana that has been compared to the music of Randy Newman, Leon Redbone and Tom Waits. With melancholy wit and a hilariously cockeyed worldview, sepia-toned singer-songwriter Lipton and his bandmates Eben Levy, Ian Riggs and Vito Dieterle deliver songs steeped in mixed-message sincerity and soul.
Tickets for the show are $16, or $30 as an MSA Performing Arts Sponsor with reserved seating.
Tickets are available online at www.MainStreetArts.org or by calling MSA at 869-2960. They are also on sale at Misty Valley Books in Chester, Village Square Booksellers in Bellows Falls and Brattleboro Books.
Pleasant Valley Brewery is partially sponsoring the event and will provide a cash bar.
