The Brook & The Bluff
Expertly crafted songs and sublime musicianship are the backbone of Nashville-based The Brook & The Bluff. Originally from Birmingham, AL, the band’s name is derived from the pockets of Birmingham where they grew up — Bluff Park for frontman Joseph Settine, and Mountain Brook for bassist Fred Lankford, drummer John Canada, keyboardist Kevin Canada, and guitarist Alec Bolton.
Julia Pratt is a 22 year old singer-songwriter based in Philadelphia. A songwriter at heart, Julia’s music blends pop, jazz, r&b, and folk, with dashes of electronic production. Grounded in poignant lyricism inspired by songwriters such as Kevin Garrett, Amy Winehouse, and Hozier, Julia writes about family, love, betrayal, and grappling with the concept of “the self.” Fresh off of a national tour opening for Australian ambient pop artist Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Julia is gearing up for a series of releases throughout the rest of 2023 while continuing to perform. Her latest release, a collaboration with Mt. Joy, titled “A Little Love” has amassed over 1 million streams in the first two week of release.
Spruce Peak is dedicated to supporting local charities and organizations dedicated to helping Vermonters in need. Since 2020, through the Spruce Peak Cares initiative, Spruce Peak has donated $200,000 to six worthy organizations: Vermont Foodbank, Meals on Wheels, Clarina Howard Nichols Center, United Way of Lamoille County, The Current, and the North Country Animal League.
A portion of ticket sales from the 2023 Spruce Peak Summer Concert Series goes directly to the Spruce Peak Partner Charities, and each show highlights one of these amazing organizations.
Spruce Peak Cares Partner Charity
Located in Stowe, Vermont, The Current was established in 1981, growing out of a community project to save a historic building and use it for the benefit of the community. Our mission is to enhance the human experience through the visual arts. We provide year-round visual art exhibitions in our galleries and our annual outdoor sculpture show, Exposed, throughout the town; public programs such as lectures, panels, and film screenings primarily linked to our exhibitions; and progressive and innovative arts education programs for all ages. In recent years, we have evolved our arts education initiatives through an Interpretive Learning Program and expanded studios that create hands-on learning experiences for our audiences to become active participants in building understanding for the artwork we present.
