Sunapee Coffeehouse goes online: BlizzardFest with Ian Ethan Case

Ian Ethan v2The Sunapee Community Coffeehouse will hold its first ever online-only concert on Saturday, February 9, starting at 7:30 p.m.

BlizzardFest will feature acoustic double-neck guitarist Ian Ethan Case.

Winter Storm Nemo has forced cancellations across the region including Friday night’s performance by Case in Sunapee that was to be held at the Lake Sunapee Methodist Church.

“Ian will be live streaming a concert, BlizzardFest, for us and his other fans on Saturday evening,” says Coffeehouse founder Randy Richards.

“A full concert will be streamed to you live, video as well as high quality audio, from our living room to yours!” says the update on Case’s website.

“Tuning in is simple: go to at 7:30 p.m. eastern time this Saturday (Feb. 9) and enjoy a 1.5-hour concert from the comfort of your home!”

Sunapee Coffeehouse: Ian Ethan Case returns by popular demand

Ian Ethan v2He’s back by popular demand! Multi-instrumentalist Ian Ethan Case returns to the Sunapee Community Coffeehouse on Friday, February 8. The music starts at 7 p.m. at the Lake Sunapee Methodist Church, Lower Main Street, Sunapee. There is no cover charge. The Coffeehouse passes the hat for the musicians.

“Ian Ethan Case’s strikingly unconventional, self-invented approach to the double-neck guitar is both magical to hear and fascinating to watch,” writes Tom Daniels in the Coffeehouse release. His performances promise both visual showmanship and “harmonically rich, multi-layered music of his composing.”

Hopefully, weather will not force a cancellation. A major Nor’easter could hit the area Friday and Friday night. Cancellations are posted on the Coffeehouse website.

Daniels will emcee Friday night.

Singer, songwriter and artist Tom Pirozzoli, Goshen, will perform at the Coffeehouse on Friday, February 15, from 7 to 9 p.m. Al Peterson, Sunapee, will be emceeing.

Open mic, a Coffeehouse tradition, will close out the month on February 22, from 7 to 9 p.m.  For more information including volunteer jobs and sponsorship opportunities, visit the Coffeehouse website:
