Sunapee, N.H. – Dublin born folklorist, folk-singer and instrumentalist Tom O’Carroll brings to his performances: stories, humor and a bit of history. For the start of the Sunapee Community Coffee 2013 season, O’Carroll will be on stage on Friday, January 11.
The Coffeehouse listening room is at the Lake Sunapee United Methodist Church, Lower Main Street, Sunapee. Music is from 7 to 9 p.m. The emcee for the evening will pass the hat for the musicians; there is no cover charge.
Whether playing a plaintive air on the tin whistle or singing and playing rousing traditional songs to the accompaniment of the guitar or the bodhrán (Irish drum), O’Carroll will captivate all with his lively program of Irish culture. – Tom Daniels, Sunapee Community Coffeehouse.
O’Carroll performs at concerts, festivals, colleges, libraries and pubs all over the U.S., Canada and Ireland.
The evening’s sponsor is Pizza Chef Restaurants of New Hampshire and Vermont.
Jeff Warner on January 18
On January 18, Jeff Warner will perform at the Coffeehouse, 7-9 p.m. Jeff Warner is among the nation’s foremost performer/interpreters of traditional music. His songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages and mountaintops of America connect 21st century audiences with the everyday lives–and artistry–of 19th century Americans.
Warner has performed widely, from large festivals in the U.K. to clubs, festivals and schools across the U.S. He plays concertina, banjo, guitar and several “pocket” instruments, including bones and spoons.
John Kiernan’s Village Sports, New London, N.H. is the sponsor.
The Coffeehouse open mic will be on January 25, on the last Friday of the month.
