Vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Potter is only 21, but she’s already amassed an intense following and critical acclaim for her incendiary live performances and two albums, 2004’s Original Soul and this year’s Nothing But The Water.

Throughout the rest of August and September, she and her band will mix their own headline dates with a second stage stint for Dave Matthews Band, as well as opening for North Mississippi Allstars, and Taj Mahal.

In October, Potter & Co. will appear at Cambridge, Mass.’ Harvard Square October Fest, and then play a week and a half’s worth of headlining dates in their home state of Vermont. They’ll hit theatres in seven cities October 14-23 and finish up in Waitfield, just “footsteps” away from the band’s home.

The trek is titled the Ben & Jerry’s Bringing It All Back Home Tour.

“We love Vermont and we love the support its communities have given us,” Potter said. “We wanted to design a tour that covered the state geographically, but more importantly, made stops in some of our favorite towns.”

In addition to fronting the band with her powerful pipes, Potter plays the Hammond B3 organ, Fender Rhodes, guitar and other instruments. She is joined by guitarist Scott Tournet, drummer/percussionist Matthew Burr and bassist Bryan Dondero.
