Ellis Paul with Alice Howe opening @ Vitual concert via Streamyard to Facebook
Oct 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for a virtual concert featuring Ellis Paul and opener Alice Howe at 7:00 PM October 29. 2020. This event is a co-presentation of Music on Centre in West Roxbury (Theodore Parker Church)  and the New Moon Coffeehouse in Haverhill. But you can watch from the comfort of your own home!  On the evening of Thursday October 29, Ellis Paul will zoom in from VIrginia to regale us with his magnetic voice and samples of his thirty years of creativity. In addition, the exciting new star, Alice Howe, will come to us from California as the opener of the show. Like last time, the concert is free but donations can be made via PayPal or Venmo on the internet and of course the old-fashioned way, by check. And like last time, we will continue the format of an after party we are calling the Chat/Jam with two more musicians of note to join in for a half hour or so. Be sure to stay until the end for the Chat/Jam where you will be gifted with the fabulous talent of the mystery guests!

Speaking of fabulous talent, Ellis Paul has achieved national fame for his poetic songwriting and his original sound, as well as the many CDs he has made, both for children and adults. He is also an author, poet and educator who has taught songwriting workshops all over the country.

Alice Howe is from the greater Boston area but having made a huge splash at national music conferences, she is now living in Los Angeles, working on her next CD with veteran musicians there. Famed singer-songwriter Vance Gilbert says of her, “How can a singer-songwriter have a voice like a broken angel’s bell and write songs that could be a week or a hundred years old all at once? Alice Howe, that’s how.”

REV. ROBERT B. JONES and MATT WATROBA @ Linden Tree Coffeehouse, Wakefield MA
Nov 7 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

FREE EVENT (DONATIONS to the performers highly recommended)

Rev. Robert Jones and Matt Watroba LIVE on the WEB  

A year of Memorable Music in the Time of Covid

Like most concert series, The Linden Tree Coffeehouse, based in Wakefield, MA, will not be having live concerts at the Unitarian-Universalist Church this year due to Covid-19.   However, we want to bring our audiences and performers together to celebrate our thirty-sixth season of acoustic music concerts.  Our national and international performers will be broadcasting LIVE shows from the safety of their homes while our audience members can grab their favorite beverages and snacks and curl up in their favorite chairs to listen.. Up close and personal, Linden Tree Coffeehouse will be Making Memorable Music.

Matt Watroba and Rev Robert Jones – The American Experience: From Roots to Rap, A Musical Celebration of History and Diversity. Long-time musical partners, Watroba and Jones will present music that reflects history, social change, migration, hopes and dreams. This is music that is rich and diverse, direct and powerful. This is a musical seminar – not to be missed!.  

Although we cannot charge admission to these shows, it is expected that viewers would donate what they can.  Usually Linden Tree Coffeehouse charges $20 for adults and $10 for those under 18 years old. Our performers have bills to pay and most of their live concerts since last March were cancelled for the year. There is much uncertainty when live shows will resume.  So be generous if you can, by donating $5 or $10 to their Pay Pal accounts of send in a personal check to Linden Tree Coffeehouse with a note for the performer and they will get sent to them.  We thank the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Wakefield Chapter for supporting our concert series that  has allowed us to bring quality programming to our community.
