Finest Kind, long among the folk world’s most stellar attractions, will make a rare appearance in Burlington for a “Get Out of Debt” benefit for The Champlain Valley Folk Festival. The Canadian vocal trio will take the stage at the Contois Auditorium at Burlington City Hall on Sunday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m.

Finest Kind will be joined by Vermont’s renowned fiddler and songwriter Pete Sutherland, singer Deb Flanders and young friends in selections from the Flanders Ballad Collection (featured on Deb’s new CD, “The Female Highwayman”). Robert Resnik, host of Vermont Public Radio’s popular “All the Traditions” folk music show, will emcee.

The “Get Out of Debt” benefit event is expected to retire a $40,000 deficit and restore the Champlain Valley Folk Festival to solvency. The Finest Kind concert will also feature an instrument raffle and CD sale. Tickets are $20 each, available on The Champlain Valley Folk Festival website (www.cvfest.org). Contois Auditorium seating is limited, so advance registration is advised.
