Sunapee Coffeehouse opens season with Chelsea Berry

The fall season begins! Music returns to the Sunapee Community Coffeehouse Friday, September 14, with a performance by singer/songwriter Chelsea Berry.  The Coffeehouse listening room is at the Sunapee Methodist Church, 17 Lower Main Street, Sunapee. There is no cover charge. They pass the hat for the musician.

Tom Daniels will emcee on the 14th and the show starts at 7 p.m.

The community coffeehouse hosts music from 7 to 9 p.m. on most Friday evenings during the fall, winter and spring. Open mic, a Coffeehouse tradition, is held on the last Friday of each month.

Berry’s music has an “incredible edge, power, and finesse,” according to the release.

“Her presence has been described by listeners as ‘compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame. Her vocals are controlled, smooth, and intensely powerful. Her original lyrics are reminiscent of the folk music of the sixties.”

Berry was born and raised in Alaska and made her way through Montana, Nashville and Chicago before settling in the Boston area three years ago.

Berry has performed at many of New England’s listening rooms, including House of Blues (Mass.), Tupelo Hall (N.H. and Vt.), The Firehouse (Mass.) and Vanilla Bean (Conn.). She has opened for Cheryl Wheeler, Livingston Taylor, Chris Smither, Roger McGuinn, Patty Larkin, Vance Gilbert, Buskin & Batteau, Jill Sobule, Marshall Crenshaw, and many others.
