About The Event
About The Featured Musician
Vermonter Reid Parsons is an open book on stage, words stripped to the heartwood. Parsons's lyrics are honest and simple, placed with intention in a true craftsman style. Not one to beat around the bush, Parsons has a knack of distilling the hurts and hopes of life into compact tunes that live in the liminal spaces between genres. “Parsons has a warm spirit. Even though her tunes touch on hardships and dark times, they impart a sense of hope that’s lately in short supply” (Jordan Adams, Seven Days).
Parsons was raised in the woods with early influences of folk, blues, and jazz. Her deft songwriting landed her the top spot at the 2017 Advance Music Singer/Songwriter competition, providing the opportunity to record a 5 song EP, released in 2018. Parsons subsequently recorded a live EP in 2021, and her debut album is scheduled for independent release in late 2023.
