Winter Potpourii

Linden Tree Coffeehouse, Unitarian Universalist Church, Wakefield, MA

The Linden Tree Coffeehouse continues its 35th year of acoustic music concerts on Dec. 14th at 7:30 pm. Join us for Winter Potpourri, 2019 an evening of discovering new talent!  Eight local singer/songwriters will play two songs each, and one or more of these folks will be chosen to perform during next year’s season. Audience input will play a big part in the decision making process, so please come help us make this choice, while enjoying new music and new faces. 

 

What is folk music these days?  It can be traditional or contemporary with roots in bluegrass, country, jazz, gospel, and blues. Our contestants will provide a range of music in the genre we call Folk. Performing in this year’s potpourri are Bill Anderson, Mark Bishop Evans, John Ferullo, Kathleen Healy, Roberta Lamb, Rick Drost, Toast & Jam, and Wild Maple.  Samples of their music can be found on their web and facebook pages. 

The evening will again be hosted by Wakefield singer/songwriter Kirsten Manville who will perform a few favorite songs from her album, Some People Sing and introduce a few new ones.   Kirsten creates songs that feel like they may have come straight from journal entries - deceptively simple lyrics that paint pictures, tell stories, and evoke a range of emotions. Kirsten is a refreshing, straightforward folk-rock, country-singer-songwriter with stage presence audiences love.  

 

Entertainment will include a 25-minute set by one of last year’s winners, Peter Lehndorff.  He writes folk and jazz songs about everyday life. Peter is now mixing his humorous observations with the serious; the romantic with the eccentric. There are stories about cars; what he eats; and the places he has lived. His car-related songs have been on NPR’s CAR TALK radio show.  Besides winning last year’s Linden Tree Coffeehouse’s Winter Potpourri, Lehndorff has been a finalist in the Boston Acoustic Underground competition. The Springfield Union wrote about his performance, “intelligent lyrical vignettes of everyday life and the comical trappings of suburbia, delivered with an acute sense of comedic timing.”
