Park McCullough House
1 Park St, PO Box 388
North Bennington, VT  05257 Map

"Long Journey, a duo of Amrita Lash and Karl Mullen, whose harmonies are as sweet and fierce as bourbon on a summer night. Hailing from Williamstown, Long Journey coined the term “fierce folk” to describe their powerful sound. The textured and soaring harmonies of Mullen and Lash take original and traditional songs exploring love, yearning, life, death, and everything in between to unexpected places. Their debut album was released in 2016 and a second album is scheduled for release in September” -Seth Rogovoy

Tickets are $12 at the door. Cash bar offered by Harvest Brewing.
