Cranberry Coffeehouse

The Cranberry Coffeehouse has been a fixture in the musical life of upstate New York for almost 50 years, and has been a frequent stop for a wide range of acoustic performers. It is one of the longest continuously-running venues for traditional folk and acoustic music in New York’s Southern Tier. The setting is humble, but comfortable, and the energy, exuberance, and beauty of the performances are long remembered. The Cranberry primarily presents pre-twentieth century American music and Folk music from various global traditions.

During 2020 renovations at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, the Cranberry Coffeehouse takes place at the NOMA Community Center, 85 Walnut Street, Binghamton, New York 13905.  Unless otherwise specified, performances start at 7:30 p.m., with a $10 suggested donation at the door.
