Northern Exposure
Northern Exposure
Higher Ground is proud to announce the return of the Northern Exposure. The Northern Exposure series provides an opportunity for up-and-coming Vermont bands to take the stage in the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge. Higher Ground is thrilled to provide an opportunity for developing acts to show their stuff at Burlington’s premier music venue. Think of it as a farm-system – artists that impress the HG team will be considered for slots supporting larger national acts at Higher Ground!

The shows are all ages, only cost $6, and will feature 3-4 acts. If you’re a motivated band that wants to play Higher Ground, this is your chance. Interested performers should email Bonnie Hiliadis at, with the subject line “NORTHERN EXPOSURE: your band name.”
A Moretown native, Reid has been spinning tales of triumph and tragedy through her soul-soaked Americana tunes since the ripe age of 13. Performing alongside the likes of Cedric Burnside and Dexter Allen in recent years, Reid has rooted herself firmly in the blues tradition while exploring her folky singer-songwriter side. With her finger-picking style and mellifluous alto vocals, Reid bleeds raw emotion onto the stage, bringing listeners along for the ride every single time.
The Paisley Vibe
The Paisley Vibe is a jam rock outfit hailing from Plattsburgh, New York. Their wide variety of musical influences encompasses rock, blues, jazz, and classical. Their music starts with the foundation built by Nelson Moore on drums and Eli Moore and Tyler Bosley alternating between bass and rhythm guitar, and is complemented by the tasteful solo stylings of Spencer Parsons on lead guitar and Vihan A.w on keys.
Thunder Kittens
Thunder Kittens is a 3 piece rock band assembled in Winooski, VT. (Adam Fournier - Guitar/Vocals, Josh Harris - Bass/Vocals, Adam Bristol - Drums) Our songs are based on individual tastes swirled from three brains. Little bits of rock, blues, reggae, punk, funk, folk, jam and disco blended and served fresh with a "four on the floor" emphasis to create our own brand of “GROOVE ROCK!
