Chorney and friends serve up new Americana music

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.
According to The New York Times, “The orchestrations are simultaneously rich and spare, deftly echoing the sounds of traditional folk music while also having an indie-pop flair.”
This concert’s performers will include Geza Carr, drums, Dan Davine, vibes, Kelly Ravin, vocals & guitar, guest bassist Tyler Bolles and Taylor Haskins.
Doors open at the Ripton Community Coffee House at 7 p.m. An open mic set starts at 7:30 p.m., and then on to the main act. Tickets are $10 general admission, or $15 generous admission. Kids under 12 are $3.
