RIPTON — Mary Magot began a journey 16 years ago. It started in the African nation of Sudan, led her through a civil war, a temporarily fractured household and immense hardship.

Her journey — and those of 14 other people from all corners of the globe — ended on Thursday with a meandering car ride up a serpentine Route 125, near the Robert Frost Trail, to the Ripton Elementary School, where they became citizens of the United States in a ceremony presided over by a federal judge.

They play a new kind of “Americana” — one as broad and wide as the name suggests. Folk, blues, rag, jazz and chamber music; the group’s blend is as authentic as the source. Comprised of some of the finest players from Vermont’s small but vital music community, Michael Chorney and Hollar General feature the sounds of acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, steel guitars and drums. The band lifts and carries Chorney’s voice and infuses the songs with the subtlety and spontaneous interaction of a jazz quartet.
