New London, CT The Duttons, a tremendously versatile group comprising three generations, wowed an enthusiastic audience at the Garde Arts Center on Tuesday, April 17 in New London, Connecticut. Concert goers came from all over the region.
One couple returning to Boston from Florida were delighted that they could still get seats. “We saw The Duttons’ PBS Special four years ago and absolutely loved it. It is a dream come true for us to see The Duttons live. And what a delight to meet them. They are so personable. What an inspiring family!”
Kevin Treat of Best of Times Travel said, “I can’t believe our good fortune in getting The Duttons. Since they were on “America’s Got Talent” they have been very hard to get to this area. Our people loved the show.” Benjamin Dutton reported, “New London will always stay in my memory. We had so much fun at the sea shore and at Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock! I have discovered a new passion--eating freshly caught lobster on toasted bread. Oh, and the lobster bisque was to die for!” “Family vocal harmonies just can’t be beat!” said Erie Mandar of New York. “I will travel to Branson to see this group again.” The Duttons have two theaters, one in Branson, Missouri where they were recently awarded Best Show and one in Mesa, Arizona, where they spend four months out of the year. “It has been a few years since we have performed in New England,” said Judith Dutton, Timothy’s wife an the group’s keyboard player and a wonderful vocalist. “What a joyful experience we had after the show, when a familiar looking young man approached us with an old photo.” The young man, Allen Holden of Medlford, Massachusettes said, “I have saved this autographed photo of your family for 20 years. I got it at the Woodstock, Connecticut Fair where I first saw you. Thank you for taking pictures today and signing my new picture. I have been a fan for a long time.” Carole Moore of Hopedale, Massachusettes said, “You have made this an unforgettable day for a special needs young man. He has carried that autographed picture with him for the last 20 years.”
