UVM Lane Series Presents David Wax Museum
The University of Vermont Lane Series is excited to bring indie folk group David Wax Museum to the UVM Recital Hall on Friday, September 28, at 7:30pm. Recently anointed as Boston’s Americana Artist of the Year, the David Wax Museum fuses traditional Mexican folk with American roots to create a joyful and infectious original indie sound.
Fronted by David Wax and Suz Sleazak, the two musicians incorporate Latin rhythms, call-and-response hollering, and even donkey jawbone rattling into their music. They have electrified audiences across the country and have been called "pure, irresistible joy" by NPR's Bob Boilen and hailed by TIME.com for their "virtuosic musical skills and virtuous harmonies." Their recently-released album Knock Knock Get Up has garnered praise and positive reviews.
The concert is generously sponsored by UVM's Student Life Campus Programs and by Vermont Public Radio. Ticket prices are $22 adults/$15 students. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the Lane Series website, or call the Lane Series office, 802-656-4455.
David Wax is a Harvard graduate who received a yearlong fellowship from his alma mater to study in Mexico under the masters of different regional styles.
Suz Sleazak grew up in the old-time and bluegrass fiddle scene in Charlottesville, VA.
