I seek .. and surprisingly, continue to find remarkably unique and exquisite performance spaces scattered about my Northeast US bailiwick .. these places are special in both the beautifully artistic ambience, in equal part museum, head shop, pawn shop, flea market, art gallery, attic, reading room, Algonquin round-table, as well as in their embodiment and self-expression of their most lovely proprietors.

Flourish is such a place. The welcome one receives upon arrival both elevates the experience to the austere level of a fine concert air, while at the same time bringing it all back “down-home”.

It’s a true privilege that I am to return here for a 2019 encore appearance.

Flourish is a magical listening room … I love playing magical listening rooms.

A part of the world I rarely get to visit, but with which I have a rich past. I hope some of the woodwork folks who’s lovely presence I have long since enjoyed will make it out for some tunes & reunification.

Vermont based acclaimed Folk Duo, Laura Heaberlin & Taylor Smith. bring their “Indie folk with Soul & Intellect” to the magical Listening Room at Flourish!

Listeners have lauded their songs “an astonishing mix of original lyrics and arrangements that reward the casual listener, as well as those who choose to lean forward and roll them around like great pieces of literature and composition” and an “unlikely combination of the gothic, the literary, and the hummable.”

“Their songs on indecision, love & perseverance, seem timeless.”
– Paste

“Spellbinding storytelling.” – Red Line Roots

“You’re lulled in by the sweetness of their melodies that are reminiscent of traditional Appalachian folk or literary indie rock like Andrew Bird and find yourself suddenly surprised by the epiphanies that their songs so often crescendo to.”
– B-Side

Voted 2019 Seven Daysies – Best Folk Group

Tired of the humdrum of everyday life, and the lack of time to pursue creativity, she laid down her day job & picked up the guitar to take art on the road.

In concert, touring artist Anna p.s. plays acoustic guitar, foot percussion, and-perhaps unexpectedly-the flute.
