Happy holidays from the Timber House – and save the date!

Holy smokes, we love you guys!

To have gifted musicians like Brian Dunne and Ken Yates, Leif Vollebekk, Ryan Montbleau, and Patchy Sanders visit our home this past year was amazing. But to have each of them spend a gorgeous evening playing to a Timber House-full of friends and family that love music as much as we do…let’s just say we could not feel more blessed.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: music is such a huge part of our life. Sharing this passion and our space is something that keeps us close to the people we love, and introduces us to other like-minded, music-loving folks. But just as importantly, it supports the talented musicians who are out on the road making their way, following their passion, and breathing new life into the future of folk, blues, bluegrass, and Americana. Thank you for being a part of the good thing we’ve got going here.

Speaking of good things going on – save these dates!!

Saturday January 9th, 7:00 pm Creek’s Edge & Co. with special guests Aside from a guaranteed great night, it’s Trevor’s birthday! Proceeds from this show are going to raise money for a sorely needed PA system for future Timber House shows.




Aaron Lipp @ The Timber House March 11th
If you don’t know Rochester area’s own Aaron Lipp it’s time to check him out, Aaron is a multi instrumentalist steeped in the Roots Americana tradition and founding member & collaborator of some amazing acts including The Cabin Killers, The Prickers, The Campbell Brothers, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Robert Randolph & The Family Band and many more!  We’re excited that Aaron Lipp will be appearing with his newest project  at The Timber House March 11th! Be sure that date makes your calendar.


We’re also buzzing about a couple other big-time national artists that have been in touch with us about playing the Timber House—so stay tuned for more announcements!

So, from all of us, to you and yours, we wish you a healthy, happy, and relaxing holiday season. Thank you again for your support, friendship, and appreciation of live music. We look forward to seeing you in January!

All the best—
Allison & Trevor

In case you didn’t make it the last time some of the Creek’s Edge gang rocked the Timber House for Trevor’s birthday, here’s a peek of what happened last time around:

And you thought October couldn’t get any better…

The fact that Ryan Montbleau just played an amazing solo show this past Sunday night has us totally fired up (by the way, if you missed it, you can see the entire show on his site rmblive.com!).

If it’s ok with you, we’re going to host one more show at the end month, just for good measure.

Get your tickets now for Ashland, Oregon-based Patchy Sanders, coming to the Timber House on October 30th!


New to the name? Here’s a little background:
Working with eclectic themes from dreams, fairy-tales, after-life, wild lands etc… Patchy Sanders crafts stream-of-consciousness story music with an emphasis on melody and lyrics.  These aren’t songs as much as they are musical emotional experiences, which conjure other worldly journeys. By and large their music fits as well in an acoustic art-house as it does in a farmhouse hootenanny, hoe-down, or main-stage at a pop festival.

And some tunes, so you can get further acquainted:

​Thanks again for your support of the fantastic musicians making a stop here. We are grateful for both.

See you soon!

Trevor & Allison.

Ahh, spring, how we love thee…

Hey again, all!

Greening trees and grass, robins chasing worms (and boy robins chasing girl robins), lilacs, longer days, bluer skies, pale legs seeing sunlight for the first time in 9 months…yes, spring is the season of change. Well, it looks like those changes have found their way to our May 20th concert as well.

Due to an NPR recording sesh scheduled in D.C. on the same day (and a ridiculously full tour schedule otherwise), Mandolin Orange had to cancel our engagement.

We’re bummed. They’re bummed.

But there is a bright side: It’s not rain. It’s the opener for the sun.

In their stead, we’re excited to announce that Leif Vollebekk will be joining us for the evening! Leif is on tour with Mandolin Orange for about a half-dozen of their shows in the northeast.

Leif Vollebekk @ The Timber House

Doors: will open at 7 p.m.
Show: starts at 8.

If you want to do some audio homework on the singer, songwriter, guitarist, pianist, blues harp blower, and fiddle sawyer, check out a couple of his videos:

And a little bio on Leif:
Leif Vollebekk spent two years searching for perfect takes. This search took him from his home in Montreal to a studio in Manhattan, from a farmhouse in Woodstock, NY to a mansion outside Paris, and the result is a dusty, polished, new, old record called North Americana.

“I wrote the songs, I found the best band in the world, and then all I had to do was find the right studio, for the right take,” he says. “And it took forever.”

After his 2010 debut, Vollebekk knew the kind of album he wanted to make next: a record like the ones he loves by Gillian Welch or Ryan Adams, that feel old and familiar even when they’re new. But also a record that speaks to the listener through its lyrics, with songs “that can hold up in a storm,” that are packed full of perfect little mistakes. So he started writing. Ten new songs, the best he had ever written, with lines about love and the end of love, about journeys and homecoming, about the death of friends and drinking yourself dry. Read more here.

If you’ve already purchased tickets for the show and still plan on attending, you’re all set! If you would rather hold off and come to our next soirée, your tickets will be honored for that show.

We’re sorry for the change-up—but hey, we’re going to have a great night regardless!

We look forward to seeing you May 20th!

Allison & Trevor

Mandolin Orange @ The Timber House Wed ***POSTPONED***

Friends of the Timber House,

We hope you survived the long winter… Now, here’s to spring! Let’s celebrate with a house concert, shall we?

We’re excited to announce our next show, scheduled for TBD, with Mandolin Orange. They’ve been touring with one of our favorite bands, The Wood Brothers, and we’re thrilled to add them to our list of Timber House musicians.


Ticket donations will be available here in about 1 week, stay tuned!

Doors: will open at 7 p.m.
Show: starts at 8.

As always, please feel free to bring your friends and loved ones – the more, the merrier. All proceeds go to the artists.

Here’s a sneak preview of what Mandolin Orange has to offer:

Here’s what people are saying:

The road has been good to Mandolin Orange since the 2013 release of ‘This Side of Jordan.’ NPR called the album “effortless and beautiful,” naming it one of the year’s best folk/Americana releases, while Magnet dubbed it “magnificent,” and American Songwriter said it was “honest music, shot through with coed harmonies, sweeping fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar and the sort of unfakeable intimacy that bonds simpatico musicians like Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.” The record earned them performances everywhere from the iconic Newport Folk Festival to Pickathon, as well as tours with Willie Watson, Gregory Alan Isakov, The Wood Brothers, and more.

We hope you will join us!

Ken Yates- New York Rain (Live Session Feb. 2012)

A little background on Brian Dunne:  www.briandunnemusic.net

Raised in New York, folk rock singer/songwriter Brian Dunne’s music has won the attention and praise of many. With his sharp lyrical prowess and country-influenced vocals, Brian has played in the U.S. far and wide. Citing influences such as Bob Dylan, The Band, and Bruce Springsteen, one can hear his roots winding through the sound and style of his songwriting and performing. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music in 2011, Brian moved to New York City where he currently resides, and has spent much of the last year supporting his newest release, The Brooklyn Bridge EP, which charted on the US iTunes singer/songwriter charts and received praise from artists such as John Mayer amongst many others.

When asked about his goals pertaining to his music, he says, “I would like nothing more than to spend my time sharing this music with people. Above all else.”

A little background on Ken Yates: www.kenyates.com

Born and Raised in London, Ontario, Ken Yates moved to Boston to study songwriting at Berklee College of Music. It was there that he developed his skills as a songwriter, releasing his first CD, “The Backseat EP”, and received the opportunity to play a song for one of his biggest influences, John Mayer. Mayer even posted a full page blog about Yates’ ability as a writer stating, “Ken Yates wrote a song called ‘I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love’… this song moved me when I first heard it and still does today”. Yates’ EP received high critical acclaim, leading to a slew of online covers from fans. He has toured with many notable names including veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor, Sister Hazel, Peter Katz, and Liz Longley and has songs in heavy rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House where he was nominated for The Coffee House Songwriter Discovery of the Year.

His debut full length album twenty-three, recorded in Holland and produced by Joren van der Voort is available now with Mishara Music

Rita Hosking Trio
Hello everyone!

Hopefully everyone’s summer came to a reasonably restful close. Between Danny & Carrie winning our hearts (again!) in July and Driftwood raising the roof last week, it’s been a busy one here. That said, what better way to usher in a beautiful Upstate NY fall than with one last show!

We’re excited to welcome The Rita Hosking Trio to the Timber House on October 17th.

If you haven’t heard Rita’s music before, have a listen:

From NPR’s Weekend Edition to major music festivals, she is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and doubly sweet and sinewy voice. With partner Sean Feder on dobro and banjo, and Kora Feder on clawhammer banjo, guitar, and mandolin, Rita delivers what No Depression calls “Authentic American folk music to stir the soul.”

Some Accolades on Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line!

“Fans of Dixie Chicks, Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton, take notice: Nora Jane Struthers embodies everything you could want in an Americana singer-songwriter.” — NPR Music

“Old time music continues to reinvent itself in the able hands of young artists like Nora Jane Struthers” — Tim O’Brien

“Spend some time with [Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line} and you’ll quickly discover what separates them from the rest of the roots-inspired crowd: Rich storytelling, repeat-worthy melodies and a modern mashup of traditional, bluegrass, folk, country and rock influences.”” — Paul Wallen, Tampa Bay Times

“Nora Jane is one of the best songwriter-singers this side of the Himalayas!” — David Mayfield

“It’s no surprise that Brent Truitt was the producer on tap for Nora Jane Struthers’ new second album, Carnival. Truitt is best known for his work with Dixie Chicks, Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton — three artists whose music, if you could melt it down and mix it all together, might come out sounding like Struthers and her backup band, The Party Line.” — Kim Ruehl, Folk Alley

Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line are “right square in the intersection of a venn diagram describing bluegrass, old time, singer/songwriter and Americana music today.” — John Lawless, Bluegrass Today

“Nora Jane Struthers is one of the most mesmerizing, haunting and hard-hitting projects I’ve ever heard. Her lyrics are simply spectacular and have achingly beautiful melodies to boot. This is one of my favorite all-time albums and certainly the most arresting music I’ve heard in a long time.” – Dave Higgs, Bluegrass Breakdown
