156 SUMMER STREET BRISTOL, CT

The Ingraham House Concert Series—intimate live music venue.

When we first walked through our grand old house—built in 1890 by William S. Ingraham of the Ingraham clockmakers—we marveled at the space we now call, after doing some homework, the grand foyer.  “Wow.  What a great place to hear live music.”

In March of 2011, a casual conversation with a customer yielded our first opportunity to test the space.  We booked New Haven-based Goodnight Blue Moon and Binghamton, NY-based Driftwood for our first house show, not really knowing what to expect besides a good time.  We were wrong, of course.  It was a phenomenal time, a life-changing experience.  The music was great!  The room sounded fantastic!  Our wonderful friends from Broadview Manor generously catered the evening with delicious refreshments and libations and our fantastic guests enjoyed themselves immensely!  We vowed more concerts.

We built a summer concert series that included the great New England-based Mark Erelli, the triumphant return of Driftwood, the incredible Jamie Kent & The Options from Northampton, Chicago indie-rockers Milano, and traditional Irish music makers The Press Gang from Portland, ME.

It's been so rewarding sharing our home and the music we love with our community that we've decided to host a concert every month, weather, weddings, and newborns notwithstanding.
