The Ballroom Thieves with the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra, the DuPont Brothers

When: Sun., April 17, 8 p.m. 2016

Boston’s the Ballroom Thieves got their start in a college dorm room in 2010 with nothing more than a djembe, an acoustic guitar and three voices. That minimalist approach has been at the core of their music even as it’s grown more complex and sophisticated. For example, presently the trio is touring backed by the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra, a 25-member string ensemble composed of students age 12 to 18. Even amid that symphonious sound, the Thieves retain the humble intimacy that has made them one of New England’s finest folk-rock bands. The Ballroom Thieves and the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra play Sunday, April 17, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Locals the DuPont Brothers open.

Price: $12/14. AA
