11:00AM-12:15PM: The Zeichner Trio

Yasi, Oliver, and Louli Zeichner are three siblings who have grown up in the hills of central Vermont. They play traditional Irish music, and Old-Time/Appalachian music – with Louli on 4 and 5 string banjos and Celtic harp, Oliver on the penny whistle and the uilleann pipes, and Yasi on the fiddle. When they first began playing traditional music, the Zeichners didn’t intend to become a family band. However, in 2012, they became involved with Young Tradition VT (YTV), a non-profit organization providing opportunities for young people in the state to learn and perform traditional music. Through YTV, the Zeichner Trio began to play music at different festivals and benefit events across Vermont. Their first gig was at the Tunbridge History Expo, and since then the trio has played at events such as the Burlington International Festival, the New World Festival in Randolph VT, the Celebrate VT Festival in Stowe VT, the Big E in Springfield MA, and Farmer’s Night at the VT Statehouse.

 

Throughout their musical journey, the siblings have been lucky to live in a state with a vibrant traditional music network and community. They have had support from many local, well-known musicians and session/jam networks in the state, and through organizations such as YTV and the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture in Montpelier, VT.

Strength Through Heritage

Barre is the fourth largest city in Vermont. While the community first developed around the milling available along the adjacent Winooski River, granite soon emerged as the key industry of Barre. In fact, granite from Barre, Vermont was used in some of the nation (and world’s) finest buildings, monuments, and memorials. Consequently, granite carvers from across the world settled in Barre making the city a rich mixture of cultures from all over the world.
