About the Event

Four smiling adults, arm in arm, one with a guitar and one with a mandolin.

Join Coffee House Club for drinks and billiards, and stay for live bluegrass music with Almost Kin. As always, the conversation and conviviality will continue over dinner.

About the Band

Almost Kin sings close harmony, drawing inspiration from a wide range of styles and eras, from the pioneering work of Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard, to ground-breakers Dolly Parton and Bill Monroe and on to notable iconoclasts like The Roches. The four members—George Devoe, Lily Wiggins, Margot Protzel and Jess Lynn—are all Jalopy School of Music alums who started singing and playing together in the fall of 2022, focusing on two, three and four part harmonies in classic songs from the bluegrass and country music traditions, broadening out into Texas swing, traditional folk and contemporary Americana. With tight vocals accompanied by guitar and mandolin, Almost Kin features the familiar, the forgotten and the rarely heard.


Ticketed guests are welcome to stay for dinner by indicating so in their Eventbrite RSVP.

There will be an a la carte menu to choose from with a $5 per glass Coffee House wine special. You can pay for your meal with a card or your membership account (no cash).
