About Burnham Presents

The Burnham Presents music series is held in historic Burnham Hall in the mountain village of Lincoln in Addison County, Vermont.  Lincoln is about 30 miles south of Burlington, 16 miles from Middlebury and 5 miles from Bristol. The wood frame interior has beautiful pressed tin walls and ceilings with great acoustics. 

The space holds around 175 seated with a 3 foot elevated 12 by 24 foot stage.

The series features regional & nationally touring artists of note mostly on first Saturdays September through May.

Check the website calendar to verify a performace date as we occasionally need to work with touring artists schedules .

The intent of the series is to create a warm and welcoming environment for both the performers and audience members. The format is two- 45-50 minute sets with a short intermission where people can visit and enjoy homemade desserts and refreshments.

We have an elevator and are ADA accessible.

Our door fee is sliding scale $20 for general admission and $25 for generous admission. Burnham Presents absorbs any service fee on tickets and all funds after expenses go directly to the performers.  We also honor a pay what you can system for folks who find the the entrance fee a challenge.

The series  founders, Beth Duquette and Mark Mulqueen have been part of presenting and performing music in Addison County, The Champlain Valley and beyond for many years. 

Beth was the Ripton Community Coffee House co-directer for over 20 years  and was a 20+ year volunteer and program chair for Middlebury Festival on the Green, a much loved week-long annual music festival in it's 4th decade.

Mark has been a long time sound engineer for many artists, venues and festivals over the years including The Ripton Community Coffee House, After Dark Music Series, Middlebury Festival on the Green, The Champlain Valley Folk Festival, The Valley Stage Festival and many others.

They love their community and look forward to continuing the tradition of sharing live music at Burnham Hall as Burnham Presents.
