The Amber DeLaurentis Band may be new to Castleton this year, but she certainly is not new to the New England music scene.
"Her voice," said Dick Nordmeyer of the Castleton Concert on the Green, "is without a doubt as beautiful as you will ever hear."
According to Nordmeyer, "Amber is an outstanding vocalist and passes her exceptional talent on to the students at UVM, where she teaches jazz voice.
"She is a recording artist and has recorded with Mavis Staples and Los Lonely Boys," Nordmeyer said. "Amber composes many of her songs, and collaborates with lyricist Sarah Blue, taking second place in the Billboard International Songwriting Competition recently. Her songs have also been finalists in the John Lennon and Unisong competition, and took the Grand Prize in the Independent Music World Series. Amber has performed in Scotland, Toronto, Michigan, and the Bitter End in NYC. This definitely is an all-star line-up, and promises to be an all-star performance. It's one of our 'don't miss' concerts."
The concert will be Tuesday, June 23, at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. It will perform rain or shine. Rain site is under the tent on the campus of Castleton State College. For more information, call Nordmeyer at 273-2911.
