Brandon Music first opened in October 2009 when owners Stephen and Edna Sutton (originally from Northern England) opened an English tea room in a historic converted barn, previously the studio of Warren Kimble. The tea room quickly expanded to include a full daytime restaurant, music venue, gift and antique shop, art gallery, and a vintage phonograph exhibit.
The converted barn is now open for special events and musical performances only, with dinner served prior to each show. See the website for the upcoming schedule.
In addition to Brandon Music, the Suttons have developed the Compass Music and Arts Center across town. Compass features regular art exhibits and classes, a phonograph exhibit, café, and gift shops. Artist studios, music rehearsal and lesson rooms, offices and retail space are available for rent. The Sutton’s classical record label, Divine Art Records and their world-renowned classical music CDs are on sold in both locations. Please see the website for more information: www.cmacvt.org
