Grace Potter Returns to Vermont for Grand Point North Festival

Singer is newly engaged and expecting a child in January

BURLINGTON, Vt. - The sounds of Grace Potter could be heard on the Burlington Waterfront Friday night.

Local 22 & local 44 News got a front row seat to the singer's sound check.

The annual Grand Point North festival kicks off Saturday afternoon.

A lot of changes over the past few years for the Waitsfield, Vt. native, and she won't be headlining both nights of the festival this year.

"It's been a very crazy couple years. Not just for me but for a lot of people. That's why the theme of this year's festival is Levitation, it's a feeling of having our feet of the ground and that sensation of not being sure where you're gonna land. Especially with the beautiful Lake Champlain reflecting back at us we can kind of see ourselves more clearly that way," said Potter.

Potter recently went through a divorce, but the singer has plenty to celebrate, too.

She's newly engaged and about five months pregnant.

Potter explained a little more about her fiance, record producer, Eric Valentine.

"We connected through work, met four years ago now, and created an incredible bond and connection that evolved slowly into love and now two and a half years into a relationship we really understand and recognize how much it takes to be in love and how hard it is to cross that line, but it's the best thing I ever did," said Potter.

Potter will take the stage around 8:45 Saturday night.

The Trey Anastasio band will headline on Sunday night.
