Soule Monde was born from a musical partnership between percussionist Russ Lawton and keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, that blossomed as both were co-members of Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio’s solo band.

Staples of the Burlington, Vermont music scene, both Lawton and Paczkowski kept busy with their various individual projects while playing live improv shows as a duo for months prior to formalizing their original pieces into compositions that make up this, their first recorded collaboration.

The duo will perform as Soule Monde from 6 to 9 p.m. as part of the Party on the Patio series at The Waterhole, 48 Main St., Saranac Lake.

The show is free and for ages 21 and over.
