Night Tree at Ripton Coffee House this Saturday

This Saturday, the six conservatory-trained musicians of Night Tree will take the stage at the Ripton Community Coffee House.
But don’t think this is your standard classical music performance — it’s anything but that. Night Tree is unique. First off, they have two fiddles, a cello, an accordion, a saxophone, percussion, and the occasional viola and mandolin. Secondly, they incorporate traditions from Irish, classical, Swedish, jazz, Klezmer, and Afro-Cuban music to make a sound just their own.
Their style both attracts and bewilders enthusiastic crowds while connecting folk music lovers, café radio junkies, jazz enthusiasts, free-improvisers and beyond. Each artist’s personality is given a spot to emerge with fiery improvisation, individual compositions and a pristine ear.
To top it off, the band thrives on playing in darkness. That’s right no lights. This allows them to listen completely. They react to each other at any given time in a matter of seconds. They have learned to get inside each other’s musical minds, creating one blossoming and unpredictable wave of sound that is Night Tree.
Don’t miss this one. Doors open at 7 p.m., open mic performers start at 7:30 p.m. and then Night Tree will play. General admission $10, generous admission $15 and kids under 12 $3. For more info visit rcch.org. To sign up for open mic spots call (802) 388-9782.
