The Spirit of Summervale Concert Series: Presented by the Intervale Center
Collin Cope has been playing music since before he could talk. Influenced by Ray Charles, Randy Newman, and the Blind Boys of Alabama, Collin has been active on the Vermont music scene for over 15 years playing harmonica and singing lead vocals with The Tenderbellies, Rumblecat, The Sugarsnap Trio, Something with Strings, Funkwagon, and many other groups spanning the Americana song book and beyond. His bluesy voice and soulful tones invite the audience in with familiar melodies and original music. Collin Cope & Friends is a rotating lineup drawing on a network of all-star musicians whose eclectic mix keeps the audience engaged and wanting more. Collin has won a New England Music Award (Best in VT 2016 with Rumblecat), shared bills with Mos Def, Fuel, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Bernie Worrell Orchestra, Zach Deputy and has played harmonica as a special guest with New York City blues legend Popa Chubby. He’s proud to be a member of Vermont’s vibrant community of musicians and music lovers.
