Taryn Noelle, the familiar voice of the Vermont Western Swing band Rick and the All-Star Ramblers, launches her new solo record “Taryn Noelle Swings” at the band’s upcoming performance on the lawn at Shelburne Museum July 6.
The event is the first of three Free First Friday summer concerts at the museum, with Rick Norcross and his ensemble the first headline act.
In addition to copies of Noelle’s new recording on Airflyte Records, Norcross promises the first 50 people through the gate a choice of a free Ramblers CD.
Norcross, who lived at Shelburne Museum during his childhood, said he’s looking forward to the show, which is part of his 55th anniversary tour and a chance to “honor our terrific Rambler songbird, Taryn Noelle, for her 10 years in the band and nearly 100 performances as a Rambler.”
Noelle, of Stowe, is a familiar figure on the Vermont arts scene, working in community theater as a singer, actor and choreographer. She teaches song and dance with students from primary school through high school. She previously recorded a collection of holiday songs, “Feels Like Home,” which was released in 2016.
Copies of Noelle’s new recording have been sent out to radio stations in the U.S. and Europe, Norcross said, with accolades already coming in. DJs in England and Spain have written in praising Noelle’s “Back in Baby’s Arms” track in particular, he noted.
For fans who miss the show, music by the Ramblers and Noelle is available online at rickandtheramblers.com.
Admission to the museum and show on July 6 is free. Gates open at 5 p.m. for picnicking outside the Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education. Music starts at 5:30 p.m.
The evening will feature the Backroad BBQ food truck, cold beverages, lawn games, and a cash bar and whiskey tastings with Silo Distillery. More details online at shelburnemuseum.org.
