We’re lucky to have so much great music come to little ol’ Vermont. Tonight Sierra Leone’s Refugee All-Stars are playing at Higher Ground in Burlington. Doors at 7pm, show starts at 7:30.
Last time they came they filled up the room with a couple hundred dancing fans and some of the coolest grooves to hit the ballorom in a long time.
It’s not really luck that brings the Refugees here, their latest recording was released by Vermont’s own Cumbancha recording label. It was produced by the legendary New Orleans sound wizard Steve Berlin so it’s brassy, it’s a little r&b and a little bit reggae, and it’s all spunky spirit from the hearts and spirit of musicians with some very beautiful souls.
