Strangefolk’s Reunion Continues
Here’s a look at Wednesday’s reunion show
Strangefolk’s reunion tour moved north to the band’s old college hometown last night for a performance at South Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground. In interviews before their reunion, the members of Strangefolk admitted that they learned over 60 songs for their four-show reunion run. Last night the band showed off the breadth of their catalog by offering an entirely different setlist than the night before.
The group kicked things off with “Lines and Circles,” a Reid Genauer/Jon Trafton collaboration that the band debuted at Burlington’s Club Metronome almost two decades ago. The song also deals with the themes of changes and reunion, including the lines: “People come and people go/Winds that howl and winds that blow/And you, got to let it go/Some people, sometimes/Some follow circles and some follow lines/Time and time and time again/Circles break and lines they bend/And you, got to let it go/This is your country/This is where you live/I’m asking forgiveness/Who can forgive?” The band turned in a full two-set performance and brought things to a close after midnight with “Things That Fly.” Strangefolk will return to High Ground this evening.
