The Piano by Nature Concert Series is thrilled to present a wholly new and different side to our artist presentations. On Friday, April 7th at 7:00 PM and Saturday, April 8th at 7:00 PM we welcome Vermont Singer-Songwriter GREGORY DOUGLASS to our stage for two evenings of evocative and alternative sound, blending “Rufus Wainwright’s opulent musicality and Justin Timberlake’s accessible soulfulness,” according to OUT Magazine. His recent spotlight on NPR’s “Morning Edition” has coined him “one of New England’s best-kept secrets.”
Douglass has shared the stage with artists like They Might Be Giants, Shawn Colvin, The Weepies, Jason Mraz, Regina Spektor, and Margaret Cho. Douglass’ 2009 release BATTLER features duets with friends and fellow Vermonters Grace Potter (Grace Potter & The Nocturnals/ Hollywood Records) and Anais Mitchell (Righteous Babe Records), and he is currently touring in support of his latest release, LUCID, a dream-themed concept album, and ode to Kate Bush. Check out some of his many you tube videos:
