Inner Fire District Concert

Monday, July 15 at 7:00 pm 

We are delighted to announce that Inner Fire District are performing at the Old Labor Hall. Although the members of the band are currently scattered in Vermont, Louisiana, New York, and Pennsylvania, we are honored that they have chosen the Hall for one of their occasional reunion appearances.

Members of the Inner Fire DistrictThe group was founded in Burlington, Vermont, in 2006 by accordionist/singer David Symons, who last appeared at the Old Labor Hall as Hades in the 2009 premier of  the 2019 Tony award winning musical Hadestown.

Inner Fire District performs a genre-defying music combining Yiddish and Balkan folk, intricate original compositions, old revolutionary songs, and whatever else tickles their fancy, and its core sound features accordion, clarinet, drums, bass and guitar. The group currently features David Symons (accordionist/singer), Tim Lang (guitarist/accordionist/whistler), Jennie Lavine (clarinet), John Thompson-Figueroa (upright bass and tuba), and Chris Schroth (drums).
