The Austin Music Awards named her “Best Singer/Songwriter” and “Best Folk Artist.” Over the ensuing years and 8 subsequent CDs, Ana has made good on that promising debut. She has worked with producers Martin Terefe, Jason Mercer, Joel Plaskett, Steve Earle, and Stewart Lerman, and recorded full albums with The Stray Birds and The Sentimentals. Now, in 2018, she has released White Tiger, her tenth album, a new batch of Egge originals of such singularly articulate and affecting honesty and sensitivity, as to once again deserve USA Today’s accolade, "[Ana] can write and sing rings around" her contemporaries.

"Ana Egge has the rare gift of being so eloquent and simple, she takes your breath away.”-Shawn Colvin

“Listen to her lyrics. Ana is the folk Nina Simone,” you know this is an artist with fire in her belly, sensitivity, compassion and ability."-Lucinda Williams 

She’ll be joined by Dave Cole on drums and vocals and Alec Spiegelman on bass clarinet, pump organ and vocals.

The Ripton Community Coffee House is a non-profit concert series held the first Saturday of each month throughout the year (except for August).  

Since we started the Ripton Community Coffee House in May 1995, we have been very fortunate to have a consistent, enthusiastic, and attentive audience at each performance.The coffeehouse is held in the historic Ripton Community House, a beautiful wood frame meeting hall with a small balcony,  located at 1305 Vermont Route 125, Ripton, Vermont 05766, a block up from the Ripton General Store, just next to the town office. It seats about 120 people.

Please note!

Our concerts start at 7:30 with a 45-50 minute open mic set (generally very interesting). There are 4-12 minute slots available.  This is followed by an intermission during which beverages and baked goods are available.
