Megan Hinds is a graduate of Colebrook Academy. She also graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Mountain Recreation Management at Lyndon State College and gained firsthand knowledge in the hospitality industry by working in recent years for Burke Mountain Ski Area in Vermont, as well as managing vacation rentals with Natural Retreats in Idaho, Virginia and South Carolina. She said, “Colebrook Country Club is excited to once again offer GNWCA performances as a fresh, dynamic venue for the community.”
The new “GNWCA at the Country Club” concert series gets underway at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 21, with a show by the duo Day Road. This new group features regional performers Hallie Day and Kyle Halley, who will serve up a concert of acoustic soul and Rhythm & Blues. Hallie, who lives in Pittsburg, has been wowing local audiences with her soulful interpretations of classic R&B songs, as well as original compositions. In 2012, Hallie appeared in Season 11 of the national TV program “American Idol.” She and Kyle have been performing together for a year and a half. Kyle, who lives in Stratford, lends his guitar accompaniment that captures the soulful and whimsical intonations of Hallie’s vocals.
The music continues on at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 12, when the GNWCA brings to the Colebrook Country Club the new Weathervane Theatre’s Cabaret, featuring a quartet of professional performers who will serve up a night of Broadway Showtunes.
From Scotland come the legendary duo of Alan Reid an Rob Van Sante at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 21. “Alan is one of the founders of the Battlefield Band and his and Rob’s music tells the story of Scotland’s rich landscape and history. They are one of the acts we get the most requests for from our audience,” said Jordan.
At 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18, Dana and Susan Robinson bring their show of Americana Folk music to Colebrook. The Robinsons, who have become one of the most in-demand musical coffeehouse couples now on the touring circuit, recently have moved to Vermont. “Their show last year was very well received locally and we are delighted to have them booked at the Country Club.”
The year wraps up with a Christmas concert at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 3, featuring the Fireside Fiddlers, a group of regional musicians who will add their old-timey touch to holiday classics.
Tickets for all these shows will be available at Fiddleheads, 110 Main St., Colebrook, or at the door. General admission prices for the night are: adults, $15; students, $12; children under 12 accompanied by an adult, $5.
