An evening with Jim Kweskin

Date: 
06/26/2018 - 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Location: 
Northside Binghamton

Jug band icon Jim Kweskin — singer, bandleader and founder of the hugely popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band — is known for his engaging guitar style adapted from the ragtime-blues fingerpicking guitar styles of such artists as Blind Boy Fuller, Mississippi John Hurt and others who were gaining fame during the folk revival of the 1960s. Kweskin used the more complex chords of pop and jazz to make these styles his own, and inspired a wave of imitators, including bands that were to become the Grateful Dead and the Lovin’ Spoonful. In 1967, Kweskin pulled the plug on the Jug Band. Though he rarely performed or recorded for the next 30+ years, Kweskin never stopped exploring traditional folk and blues and adapting these to his own unmistakable style.

Porchfest Returns

June 17, 2018 by pegjohnston

Binghamton Porchfest is, "A free celebration of community, music, and togetherness, Porchfest is the grassroots collaborative effort of hundreds of individual musicians and dozens of resident hosts of the West Side neighborhood of Binghamton (specifically the including and directly surrounding the historic Abel Bennett Tract) who get together on the last Sunday of every August to boogie down with their neighbors to the sounds of over 100 musical acts, presented on the front porches, stoops, and lawns of volunteering homes and businesses. Based on a grassroots, decentralized festival model created by residents of Ithaca, NY in 2007—which has since led to over 100 similar independently operated festivals across the US and Canada.

—Binghamton Porchfest turns stoops into stages, yards into venues, neighbors into promoters, and the West Side into a gigantic celebration of community togetherness. Kind of like a giant block party, but with more blocks, more bands, and less mac salad sitting in the heat. Dozens of residents offer up the use of their front porches to hundreds of different musicians who perform over the course of seven hours to thousands of attendees who spend their afternoon meandering the neighborhood by foot, bike, jazzy scooter, or unicycle. While it’s happening, the neighborhood is welcome to make of it what they will: in past years, we’ve seen people offer lemonade stands, garage sales, impromptu break dance showcases, and magic shows, just to name a few. Sky’s the limit!"

Lipbone Redding

Date: 
05/20/2018 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: 
Binghamton, NY

Lipbone Redding has taken his singular vocal instrumental style to a new level by playing guitar and producing all of the instrument sounds while simultaneously singing and storytelling without the use of electronic effects nor a loop pedal. A one-man orchestra with no electronic effects, his natural human sounds of throat singing, bass and beat-boxing, and his astonishingly realistic lip-tromboning are a must-experience evening of entertainment—as he weaves his stories with funky rhythms, catchy melodies, brash humor, soulful singing, and inventive guitar playing. An engaging and entertaining show for all ages and musical tastes...there is truly 'something for everyone' at a Lipbone show! Potluck and doors at 6:30 pm.

The songs from Driving Friend are California influenced folk-rock reminiscent of the best of Gram Parsons, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Neil Young and the Beach Boys.

Holiday treat in store for you!

December 24, 2014 by Anonymous

When all the holiday parties are over, the scrumptious goodies eaten, the gifts enjoyed and stowed away, the Xmas tree put out at the curb, the New Year ushered in, and the New Year’s resolutions made, there’s one more holiday treat in store! The annual visit of Quickstep to the Cranberry Coffeehouse.

Quickstep, a.k.a. John Kirk, Trish Miller and Ed Lowman, perform at the Cranberry Coffeehouse on Sat., Jan. 17, 2015, 7:30-10 p.m., at the Unitarian-Universalist Congregation of Binghamton, 183 Riverside Dr., Binghamton. Admission is a suggested $8.

John, Trish and Ed entertain with a diverse repertoire of original and traditional music. Leading the way are John and Ed’s fine fiddle selections. John’s warm clear voice, Trish’s clog dancing or banjo playing and Steady Eddie’s singing, yodeling, guitar playing and bass round out the band’s sound. This trio, which has performed at the Cranberry since its inception decades ago, is from Saratoga County, NY, and for many years they’ve played for concerts, dances and workshops.
The group is in the process of recording a new CD with Ed. It will feature old-time music and some songs about living the good life in a rural setting.
Park behind the church or in front (for handicapped access).
The Middle Set is for you! The Cranberry Coffeehouse encourages all musicians, vocalists, storytellers, and dancers to share their talents in the middle set. Middle set performances are limited to 5 minutes.
