Dupont Brothers: April 17 in Concert and On-Air

The Dupont Brothers Words by Marissa Bucci.

Zack duPont and his brother Sam have recently started seriously collaborating, and the results have been extremely positive, not only for the two brothers, but also for Zack duPont’s fans. The two had performed together a couple times before December, when they played a show at Nectars billed as the DuPont Brothers. Post-show, Sam who had been living in Arizona, moved to Burlington, and the two began to seriously work together as a band.

“We’re not stopping until music becomes a means to live off of,” says Zack, and the duPont Brothers are going full steam ahead to achieve this goal. They recently recorded a session at Egan Media Productions in Burlington, as well as booking slots on the radio, and press in newspaper, magazines, and blogs. Their dedication has inspired people to help them out with show bookings and career advice, and the two have a heavy touring calendar this upcoming spring and fall. Their favorite Burlington venues include Nectars, Higher Ground, and Signal Kitchen, but Zack says it’s hard to narrow it down to just one room; understandable due to the plethora of high-quality venues in Burlington.

Zack describes their influences as including Paul Simon, The Tallest Man on Earth, Ben Howard, and the Avett Brothers, which is evident in their beautiful guitar finger picking and tight harmonies. Personal experiences, and the people they have met along their journey inspire their songs. The two brothers together create beautiful music reminiscent of folk, but tinged with a variety of other genres.

The DuPont Brothers will be performing April 17th at Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center, as part of Big Heavy World's local music radio hour live concert series, ‘Rocket Shop Live at Main Street Landing,’ that showcases local Vermont musicians. The music starts at 8pm and is free for all ages, so be sure to stop by!
