Those who’ve been to our flagship Beekman 1802 Mercantile in Sharon Springs, NY, know that we pay attention to every detail. This includes what we call the aural decor.  We create a new music mix four times a year corresponding to the change in the seasons.

It’s a very important task as it sets the entire “tone” for the customer experience.  We always turn to our music dilettante, Angela Rae Berg, to clue us into the coolest new sounds.

Here’s a selection of what you’ll hear when you step in the Mercantile this autumn.   We guarantee you’ll leave the Mercantile a little hipper than when you entered.

You have some of my favorites on here (Jason Isbell!!!) Have some great indie artists I would to suggest for future! What is best way to do that?


This is a really nice mix. You should give a listen to The Avett Brothers also – good folksy vibe.


Royals by Lorde has been getting lots of play on the stations I usually have on, and at first, I didn’t care for it, but it’s gown on me, and I find myself often singing along. I’ll have to try some of your other picks.

I made a playlist from your selections on my Rhapsody account. Thank you for introducing me to artists I didn’t know. Love it.
