GREENSBORO – Highland Center for the Arts will present “The Concert for Wildlife” on Sunday, Oct. 17, at 3 p.m.
This is a benefit concert with The Mallett Brothers Band, Dave Mallett, and Tish Hinojosa to support the Vermont Wildlife Coalition Educational Fund, the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, and the Lake Champlain Committee.
Singer-songwriter David Mallett is one of America’s true original troubadours. In four decades, he has recorded 17 albums, had several hundred covers of his songs, including the American folk classic “Garden Song” (Inch by Inch, Row by Row), and has performed in clubs, concert halls and festivals across the US, Canada and Europe. He has appeared on numerous broadcasts, including National Public Radio’s “A Prairie Home Companion.”
Tish Hinojosa recorded her debut 1989 album, “Homeland,” for the A&M imprint, which also boasted folk singer/songwriter/guitarist David Wilcox and Cajun poet Zachary Richard. After a fallow period of four years, Hinojosa was revitalized, writing a number of new songs.
The Mallett Brothers Band is an independent rock and roll/Americana/country band from Maine. Their tour schedule since forming in 2009 has helped them to build a dedicated fan base across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home. With a style that ranges from alt-country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that’s influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds.
