Putnam Murdock Coffeehouse – Karen Woodhall and David Jackson Open and Open Mic

$8 – $9
Putnam Murdock - Feature

Feature – Putnam Murdock

Steeped in old-time folk, country and blues, Putnam Murdock’s songwriting presents an honest voice of Americana music.  As a one-man band or a full ensemble, the intimacy remains obvious in either his contemporary sonic collages or his classic ballads. His fourth studio release, Long Time to Make Old Friends showcases songs penned with his co-songwriting partner and mentor, Reed Foehl.
After graduating with a songwriting degree from Berklee School in Music in 2002, Murdock launched a solo career, traveling the country.  As a songwriter he earned an honorable mention from the International Songwriting Competition for ‘Jersey Whiskey’ as well as having his debut record Fiction on the official ballot for the Grammys in five categories.
Putnam has co-written songs that have appeared in the television shows Joan of Arcadia, Dawsons Creek, MTV’s Made, and The Biggest Loser. The song ‘When it Comes Around was part of the movie sound track for Just Friends. He’s performed as a session musician on several Ken Burns documentaries including The Mayo Clinic with Bill Frisell and The Roosevelts:  An Intimate History.  Recently, Murdock worked with the Ewers Brothers Film team to create music for the Mental Health Series which debuted on PBS in 2022.

Opener – Karen Woodhall and David Jackson

         Karen Woodhall does it all – contemporary folk, with blues, country and pop standards mixed in. Sometimes described vocally as “little-mama blues with a light brass to her sass,” Karen brings a refreshing and joyful approach to her music, with a natural and unassuming style that’s easy and accessible.  Karen is ably accompanied by David Jackson, on guitar.
         David Jackson plays in an energetic, percussive style, especially on his originals.  He collaborates with others or borrows from the great American songbook, traditional, old-time country, folk, swing, fiddle tunes and blues.  David plays from all these influences, ever cognizant of and grateful to carry the songs on as they`ve been passed on to him.  Together Karen Woodhall and David Jackson will open evening with their down-home style and musings.
We end the evening with a mini open mic – 8 slots. Doors open at 630p for sign-ups, show starts at 7p.
Members and Performers:  $8,  Non-members:  $9
