The Band

The Irregulars are a talented and energetic group of young musicians on Vermont’s traditional music scene. The teen band’s high spirits, tight harmonies, and driving contra dance tunes delight both listeners and dancers.
Performance highlights include performing for hundreds of dancers at the Dance Flurry weekend in Saratoga Springs NY three years in a row, and winning First Place in the Young Traditions Vermont competition held in Burlington in June 2011. The band has entertained at the Champlain Valley Folk Festival for several years running, as well as the New World Festival in Randolph and Burlington’s First Night celebrations. They have played sets for the Queen City Contras and Mad Robin contra dance series and also frequently host benefit contra dances on their own. They have also enjoyed performing at festivals, farmer’s markets, house concerts and other venues.Their first CD (Waiting for Wisdom) was released in the spring of 2013.
