Dale Robin Goodman

Dale Robin Goodman

05/30/2014 - 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Dale Robin is familiar to Coffeehouse audiences and has performed for us solo and as a member of Mom’s Home Cooking.  She will showcase her repertoire of love songs, songs of work and hard times, old time blues, songs of optimism and thoughtful intent, and an occasional sing-a-long. Her optimism and warmth shine through her music and are present in her anecdotes about her life growing up in Brooklyn, living with comically ageing parents and raising hilariously offbeat children. Suggested donation $10.00 – www.dalerobin.com

Bill Staines

Bill Staines

06/27/2014 - 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A New England native, Bill became involved with the Boston- Cambridge folk scene in the early 1960′s, and in 1971 The Phoenix stated that Bill was “simply Boston’s best performer.” Now in his fourth decade with an international reputation, there is scarcely a folksinger in America whose repertoire doesn’t include Bill’s songs, folks like Peter, Paul, & Mary, Makem and Clancy, Nanci Griffith, Mason Williams, The Highwaymen, Glen Yarborough and Jerry Jeff Walker. His wit and gentle humor draw his audiences right in, and he resonates such ease and comfort that you would be satisfied if he sang the phone book! $12.00 suggested donation www.acousticmusic.com/staines
