Deeper Than The Skin in a streaming concert @ New Revival Coffeehouse, Stow MA

Coming Jan. 30, 2021, a musical presentation on Race in America titled Deeper Than The Skin, by Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway.

Two friends, one Black, one White, born three days apart. The racial divisions that are the reality of America started them in two different worlds, but the amazing bonds of music, respect, admiration and shared vision have brought them together as friends and colleagues.

“Deeper Than The Skin” is an experience of singing and listening, It is an invitation to open your heart and mind to a story of shared humanity that resonates with your own.

As Reggie and Greg reach across the racial divide, they encourage others to foster the relationships that are, in the end, a path to healing.

“Deeper Than The Skin is an absolutely amazing experience. Not a performance (although these are two fine performers) but an experience. If you are anywhere within reach of this, don’t miss it.” Selma Civil Rights activist Rev. Gordon Gibson, author of Southern Witness, Knoxville TN.

This will be a streaming concert, presented free of charge on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Information on how to watch the concert will be publicized closer to the event.

The concert is sponsored by First Church Unitarian in Littleton, First Parish Church of Stow & Acton, First Parish in Concord, Greater Littleton Interfaith Council (GLIC), Harvard Unitarian Universalist Church, and Maynard Anti-Racism Alliance (MARA).

Grace Morrison & Marc Douglas Berardo Livestream - Jan. 30, 2021 @ Rose Garden Coffeehouse, Mansfield MA | Mansfield | Massachusetts | United States

Two top balladeers team up for an in-the-round show, and for the first-time, two longstanding arts organizations team up to bring you a live show, streamed via ShowTix4U!

For the first time, MMAS’s Black Box Theater, a cultural home for artists, audiences, and aspiring performers of all ages since 1993, and the Rose Garden Coffeehouse, which got its start presenting folk music in 1989, are teaming up to bring you this special event. The performers will be live at MMAS’s Black Box Theater. Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, no audience can be present at this time, and the performers and production crew will remain socially distant and masked.

Grace Morrison, who has appeared with a band and as a solo artist at the Rose Garden and online back in June. “She is folk. She is pop. She’s unbelievably masterful behind the wheel of a guitar. Morrison’s vocal storytelling can make you cry; it can make you sing.” — Emily Clark, Old Colony Memorial

Marc Douglas Berardo is the kind of hard working, fast moving, adventure seeking, keen observer who lives for the story and the song. In what amounts to song length works of fiction, Berardo’s sharply drawn, award winning song portraits cast a net on unusual and beguiling characters and places.

Tickets are $15.

Kipyn Martin is an emerging Indie Folk singer-songwriter whose roots sink deep into the banks of the Shenandoah River, now living in New Jersey. She has an incredible crystal clear voice. Musical magic happens whether she is singing traditional folk songs, blues, Joni Mitchell songs, or her own personal compositions.   Before Covid, she played festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses, and house concerts from New England to Texas. Kipyn also tours the country with Allison Shapira in the duo show Joan & Joni, a tribute to the music of Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell who played Linden Tree Season 34.

Kipyn Martin writes intensely personal songs whose music and lyrics call to mind a young Joni Mitchell, but the first thing you notice, a la Garfunkel, is the voice. Kipyn ‘s release of Dance Across the Sky, followed up her debut Undercover Muse. She has won the coveted Gold Award in the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest (Open category) for God is Love, her third MASC Gold adding to previous wins in 2013 and 2014.

Kirsten Manville is also a singer-songwriter with a strong voice accompanying herself with guitar and flute.  Her music explores the intricacies of love and life. Her music is heartfelt, when telling a story, capturing a moment in time. Her smile invites the audience to share her love of music and songwriting whether she is performing solo or as one half of the duo Kirsten & Dave.

“Music, specifically singing and songwriting, have always been the primary way I have tried to make sense of the world and the ups and downs of life.” Kirsten says. She hopes that listeners can relate to the emotions and stories depicted in her songs.  Plus singing, Kristen says, “is really fun and makes me feel good.”  Kirsten is a Wakefield gal, who in non-Covid time is Linden Tree’s featured host for the Winter Potpourri.  Come with Me  and Some People Sing are her most recent CDs.

Although there is no set fee for the show,  streaming concerts have been the means for the performer to pay their bills since they have not been able to tour. Suggested donations to their Pay Pal tip jars are what you can afford, recommended $10 to $20. Those who prefer to send a check, can mail to Linden Tree Coffeehouse, 8 Dexter Lane, Wakefield, MA 01880.

Peter Mulvey - April 17, 2021 @ Rose Garden Coffeehouse, Mansfield MA | Mansfield | Massachusetts | United States

Due to concerns about COVID-19, this event was rescheduled from May 16, 2020 to April 17, 2021.

Tickets purchased for the original May 16, 2020 date will be honored at the show on April 17, 2021.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. The doors open at 7:30.

Peter Mulvey is a veteran singer and songwriter from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He began his career on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, as a busker, and from there moved on to performing in the subways and streets of Boston, Massachusetts. This led to his first record deal and a leap to full-time national and international touring, beginning in the early ’90s. Mulvey is an iconoclast within the singer/songwriter world. Restless and inventive, he has made seventeen records, spanning rock and roll, folk, Jazz, spoken word, and Americana.

Our 28th Performing Songwriter Competition, which was to be held May 16, 2020, will be rescheduled to another date and time. The Rose Garden will reach out to contestants about the changes to the contest.
