Sunapee Coffeehouse: March 2013
Friday, March 1 – Singer-songwriter EJ Tretter, who hails from the Lebanon area, plays a “solid six- and 12- string guitar. He’s been described as a cross between Leo Kottke and Leonard Cohen,” says the press release. “Music in the finger picking style of James Taylor and Paul Simon.”
The Coffeehouse host for the evening will be Debbie Blesedell. Mountain Spirit Institute is the sponsor. (Concert sponsors and volunteers help sustain Coffeehouse.)
Friday, March 8 – Kenny Weiland, with a solo career that spans nearly 30 years, is a popular performer around the Concord (N.H.) area. Kenny’s music is jazz and swing oriented, covering old standards from the 30’s and 40’s, but he is equally comfortable playing blues, folk rock, and contemporary songs by Jamie Cullum, Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Paul Simon, The Beatles, John Prine, and others.
Kenny will be joined by Brad Myrick on lead guitar. Listen to Kenny’s music at myspace.com/kennyweiland.

Friday, March 15 – Fat Hands – Two brothers, Walt and Dominic Kutylowski, on guitar and bass, return to the Coffeehouse by popular demand.

Friday, March 22 – James Krueger – “Extraordinary! An extraordinarily talented writer with a real talent for poetic imagery. Impressive poetic lines, beautiful and original. Remarkable work!” said the judges of the Great American Song Contest. Listen via James Krueger.com.
James’ music is inspired by traditional folk while remaining contemporary and original. He has five solo albums, including his latest CD “The Unspoken Hope of Love.”
James’ poetry comes from a connection between the landscapes and the seasons of the northeast. The emotion and spirit of James’ music is touching. – Jay Ungar, noted American fiddler, composer and folklorist
James is from the central Catskill Mountains of New York.
Judy Thackaberry will be the MC for the evening. SunapeeNews.com is the sponsor.
