What Does Moonlight In Vermont Mean to You?

The woman who made the song “Moonlight In Vermont” a hit died this month.
Margaret Whiting was a cabaret singer who had a string of hits in the 1940’s. She was still performing in nightclubs well into her 80’s.

VPR's Neal Charnoff interviewed her to find out how she came to be the voice behind this iconic song. You can listen here.

Does "Moonlight In Vermont" bring back memories for you? And by the way, do you know where to find sycamore trees in Vermont?


  1. the vermont big tree website lists a 64' diameter Sycamore in Townsend. In Chittenden County there is one near Shelburne Falls.

  2. Moonlight in Vermont . . . the theme of my high school junior class's prom (South Royalton.) The gym was transformed with white birch fences and balsam boughs. The Young Vermonters, a wonderful collection of area high school kids had formed a big band (Directed by Dick Ellis) and filled the room with great dancing music all night long.
