Jonathan Pape does not consider himself a musical lifer. Nor does he consider himself a hobbyist. He has learned from Neil Young, REM, Concrete Blonde and the late Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees) to let music be there when he needs it. He has taken his songs out of town and kept them close to home. His Dad once wrote to him that his songs are personal. Very personal. He said they feel like they have a lot to do with the warm, moist, under-the-covers moments of true relationships. Old ones. New ones. And the kind you only dream about with someone, just out of reach. Pape’s last solo record “Every Five Years” can be found on your favorite streaming service and he continues to work on his next one in the moments between being a father and a husband.
The Wilson Mountain Skyline Ramblers include Cindy Thames (mandolin), Gene Favret (dobro), Jed Mehegan (banjo, guitar), Tim Parke (guitar). They are all Boston area Bluegrass lovers who met picking and singing at the monthly Dedham School of Music Bluegrass jams.
First Church and Parish Dedham Unitarian Universalst was first gathered in 1638 and is located in Dedham Center at 670 High Street. Its lively music program includes its choir at Sunday services, the Parish Players theater troupe and the Concerts at First Church concert series in addition to our Friday Coffee House events.
