Eli West and Ben Winship take the Ripton stage

Eli West and Ben Winship will return to the Ripton Community Coffee House on Saturday, Oct. 6, to perform their acoustic roots music. West and Winship are both masters of the guitar; combined this duo is technically impressive. But don’t worry, their music is equally entertaining for the novice listener.
Seattle-based West has become a highly regarded figure in the Americana music scene over the past several years. Old and new, folk and jazz, vocal and instrumental, odd and accessible, subtle and virtuosic…. it takes great skill and care to make music that sounds this natural.
Winship’s version of string band music is an exploration of crossroads; where raw meets refined, original meets traditional, weird meets familiar, organized meets free ranging. The Boston Globe called his sound “A further leap from traditional hill country music.”
Come listen to West and Winship’s take on roots music and enjoy let yourself be lulled by into an Appalachian calm.
The evening begins with an open mic at 7:30 p.m., followed by the feature performers. Admission is $10 or $15 if you’re feeling generous; kids 12 and under are $3. Doors open at 7 p.m. For more info visit rcch.org. To sign up for an open mic slot call (802) 388-9782.
