    The Whispering Tree

    Sunday, September 18th, 2022


    Walton Theatre

    30 Gardiner St., Walton, NY

    Music on the Delaware welcomes back The Whispering Tree as our 2022-2023 season opener on Sunday, September 18, 2022, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the Walton Theatre’s Andrea Retz Paternoster room. The Franco-American duo features singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour.


    The duo has been called “one of the most talented duos to take stage in NYC” by Deli Magazine.


    “Tastily combines wistful folk, mellow rock, and pinches of gypsy jazz and bluegrass into a compelling compilation of tightly written tunes,” says Keyboard Magazine.


    Together, the two craft richly immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics and a panoramic musicality. Their latest album, Invisible Forces, debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts, with four songs in the top 20. The album explores a deeply personal and political landscape, with themes of hope, despair and social consciousness.


    Videos and music by The Whispering Tree can be found on their website.


    The coffeehouse concert is free, with donations gratefully accepted. Desserts and coffee/tea will be available.

    Low Lily

    Saturday, October 1st, 2022

    7:30 p.m.

    Walton Theatre

    30 Gardiner St., Walton, NY


    Music on the Delaware is pleased to welcome our 2022-2023 season opener, Low Lily, on Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. on the Walton Theatre’s mainstage. The trio includes Liz Simmons on guitar and vocals, Flynn Cohen on guitar, mandolin and vocals, and Lissa Schneckenburger on fiddle and vocals.


    With a vocal blend that has been dubbed “outstanding” and “meticulous,” Low Lily’s cohesive sound comes naturally for musicians whose lives have been entwined on the road and onstage for almost two decades. Setting down roots in Brattleboro, Vermont, the band has crafted a signature sound which they have shared with enthusiastic audiences throughout North America, the UK and Canada.


    Start with excellently matched vocals, add some world-class playing, sprinkle with raised-off-grid Americana and you get Low Lily. Flynn’s deft flatpicking on guitar and mandolin and Lissa’s virtuosic fiddle-playing are grounded by Liz’s percussive rhythm guitar playing, the sounds of which combine joyously in this stunning ensemble.


    “Low Lily brandishes their formidable individual folk foundations within a collective sound that’s as smart with sense of pop phrasing and flair as it is roots-savvy.” -Roots Music Report


    There will be a brief intermission and an opportunity to win door prizes.

    Emily Hutchinson & Friends

    Music on the Delaware welcomes Emily Hutchinson and Friends to the Walton Theatre Coffeehouse Sunday, October 16, 2022, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the Andrea Retz Paternoster room.

    Emily Bartz Hutchinson is a returning favorite who played both solo and with the Brookside Trio in our 2020 Virtual Coffeehouse and House Party series. Based in the Catskills, Emily is an active performer and teacher on flute, piano, and piccolo. She was selected as a winner of the National Flute Association’s Professional Flute Choir Competition, and has performed at the NFA Convention in Washington, D.C. She has appeared as a concerto soloist with four orchestras, and at performance venues such as the Eastman School of Music and Christ Church in London, England.

    Emily and friends will perform a chamber music potpourri with Emily on Baroque flute (traverso), piccolo, and Irish penny whistle for an evening of feel-good music from every era.
