Trey Anastasio Band closed out Grace Potter’s Grand Point North festival in Burlington, Vermont last night. In years past, Potter has headlined both Saturday and Sunday night at the Festival. This year, Potter headlined Saturday night while turning over that spot to Trey Anastasio Band (TAB) on Sunday. (Grace performed a full set immediately before Trey.) This was the first show for TAB in Burlington since in October, 2011. Potter has performed on several bills with Anastasio over the years.
Grand Point North Festival
Whither Grace Potter? After more than a decade of constant touring, the Vermont-based rock n’ roller has been all but absent from the stage for the last year. She returned this weekend to host Grand Point North, the annual mini-festival on the waterfront in Burlington, VT, that was started in 2011 when her calling card read Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
Grand Point North, the music festival presented by Grace Potter and Higher Ground at Burlington’s Waterfront Park on September 16 and 17, released set times for the festival today.
Grand Point North offers music on two side-by-side stages with alternating performances, enabling festivals goers to catch every note. The opening bands are hand-picked by Grace and are always an amazing addition to the headline talent. Set times are as follows:
Saturday, September 16 – Gates open at 3:00PM
