News from the Living Room Coffee House

From Stephen and Mike, founders of the Living Room Coffee House:

After the June 16th coffee house Mike and Stephen will be stepping back from the coordinating effort. They are looking for some fresh talent to keep this wonderful coffee house going. It has been 10 years. Yes the Mason Coffee House, ”The Living Room” has been setting up a stage or local musicians and poets, to share their talents with enthusiastic supporters for ten years. It has, and still is so much fun to share this time together with friends. We have seen so many great performances here on our stage. The talent and friendship you all bring each month is the best. If you, or anyone you know is interested in coordinating a coffee house please contact us.

Decatur Creek is an acoustic trio based in Antrim NH. In the band are Doug Farrell, Steve Dionne, and Jack Carlton, all of whom write original songs and have played as soloists.

We have enjoyed listening to this trio grow. They performed in Mason at the Summer Music on the Green. They wowed folks that night. It can be said that Steve, Jack, and Doug’s Friendship is reflected in their performances. The sum of all the parts light up and energize the tapestry of music they perform for the audience. They are quite comfortable sharing the stage together and their friendship and camaraderie spill out onto the audience with wit and warmth. Everyone will enjoy this performance.
