Dudley Farm String Band + Ben Mikula + Jacob Green

  • CAFE NINE 250 STATE ST NEW HAVEN CT 06510 (map)

The Dudley Farm String Band brings together bluegrass, traditional and progressive styles. Our band name comes from the Dudley Farm, a 19th-century farm museum and educational center located at the intersection of Routes 80 & 77 in North Guilford, CT. You can usually find us at there on Saturday mornings, playing under the trees for the farmer's market when weather permits, inside the farmhouse on cold or rainy days. We've played in venues around the state, including: The Podunk Bluegrass Festival, East Hartford, CT; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven; Medad Stone Tavern Museum and Ceili's Pub, Guilford; Madison Historical Society, Madison, CT; Night of a Thousand Stars (Guilford Free Library); North Branford Library; The International Festival of Arts & Ideas, New Haven, CT; and, of course, performances at Dudley Farm. We also recorded traditional music for the soundtrack of a Dudley Farm video showing a recent barn-raising at the farm.
