Winning three prestigious bluegrass band competitions in Maine, Connecticut and New York, they have been dubbed a “Triple Crown Bluegrass Band” by Bluegrass Today.  The group is heading out in the 2019 concert season debuting their first full length album of original tunes titled Old Mountain Time.  

  "The songs that found their way onto the new record are more than mere imitation — they're the genuine article." Dan Bolles Seven Days

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. The money generated by the refreshment sales benefit a different local non-profit organization each month. The featured performer(s) then do a single set that begins between 8:30 and 9:00.

The single set lasts an hour to an hour and a quarter.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.
