Cranberry Coffeehouse

The Cranberry Coffeehouse has been a fixture in the musical life of upstate New York for more than four decades, and has been a frequent stop for performers of varied acoustic genres. It is one of the longest continuously-running venues for traditional folk and acoustic music in the Binghamton area. The setting is humble, but comfortable, and the energy, exuberance, and beauty of the performances are long remembered. Primarily a venue for traditional folk music, the Cranberry also enjoys other types of acoustically-based music.

We put the folk back in Folk music

The Cranberry Coffeehouse encourages musicians, vocalists, story-tellers, and dancers of all ages and skill levels to share their talents during the “Middle Set”. Middle set performances are each limited to five minutes.

The Cranberry Coffeehouse is located at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 183 Riverside Drive, Binghamton, NY 13905.  Unless otherwise specified, performances start at 7:30 p.m., with a $10 suggested donation at the door. For more information, visit www.cranberrycoffeehouse.org.
