PUTNEY– Next Stage Arts Project is pleased to present Cat Dail & The Magnets and the Bluebird Orchestra on Friday, June 6, at 7:30 pm, at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill, in a benefit for Next Stage.

Cat Dial & The Magnets is an indie pop rock band playing eclectic tunes for the heart and the head. Their newest release, “The Wonder,” is an infectious romp. Hard rocking, deep grooving, and super hooky, the record is a musical adventure.

Thanks to Dail’s feel for so many genres, there’s a fantastic variety presented. Elements of pop, punk, reggae, funk, world beats, and gospel

Opening the show will be Donald Saaf’s quartet from southern Vermont, the Bluebird Orchestra. The group draws its influences from diverse corners, including the Carter Family, The Incredible String Band, Kurt Weill, and Thelonious Monk, while always keeping one foot in traditional American roots music. In any particular tune, you may encounter elements of folk, rock, early jazz, klezmer or polka music. Their music has been described as beautiful, sometimes sad, poignant and funny, sung and played with gusto, and sure to delight any audience.

Tickets are $15 general admission ($25 with signed CD) available online at, at Offerings in Putney or Turn It Up in Brattleboro.
