The Mark Tolstrup Band at Ripton Community Coffeehouse

7 December 2019
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Ripton Community Coffee House

Doors open at 7:00 pm.

Mark Tolstrup plays traditional and original songs that meld blues, folk, ragtime, and jazz but sticks closest and most authentically to the sounds of the Mississippi Delta blues. His slide guitar and unaffected raw vocal sound show him to be the genuine article. He has assembled a talented group of musical cohorts at the crossroads where Dixieland Jazz meets Delta Blues. At this performance he will be joined by Jill Burnham on vocals, Woody Strobeck on trombone, Frank Orsini on fiddle, and Tony Markellis on bass. Together they produce a sound from the roots of American music moaning low with the blues and rollicking with the joy of traditional jazz of New Orleans.

The Ripton Community House is wheelchair accessible. Call ahead for a slot on the open mic list. Admission: $15 generous admission; $10 general admission; $3 for children. For more information: 388-9782.
