Rebecca Padula & Ukulele Clare Duo

This entertaining duo draws deeply from the American Songbook, bringing the best of jazz, country, folk, and blues. Rebecca backs her smoldering alto with guitar and ukulele.
     Clare is a ukulele shenanigan instigator who brings a lighthearted style to the stage with her ukulele, banjolele, and harmonica.

     For a bigger sound, we call in our musical friends on fiddle, stand-up bass, mandolin, and more!

Rebecca Padula

She's got a dark, folk-rock espresso of a voice, with a shot of bluegrass and a hint of jazz. Her smoldering alto simmers over guitar, ukulele, tenor banjo or mandolin to create an intimate and varied show that often includes her own originals and works by other Vermont songwriters.

Random Notes

Don and Julie Gould light up the room on mandolin and standup bass, fronting a changeable roster of musicians to fit the occasion. They've got more bluegrass and fiddle tunes than you can shake a pick at and will keep your toes tapping and dancers reeling all night long. Find upcoming gigs.
