Living Room Coffee House to feature Caleb Wetherbee on Saturday

Finger-style guitarist/singer Caleb Wetherbee performs traditional and contemporary folk music with intricate bare-finger accompaniment. Audiences can expect a repertoire of sensitive ballads, country-blues tunes, older songs in the vein of Fats Waller along with many solo guitar favorites and original compositions. With his controlled baritone voice and six-string stylings, Wetherbee’s singing and playing are sure to inspire and entertain.

We were taken with Caleb’s playing of the Stars and Stripes Forever. His fingers were masterfully flying around the fret board. It was a sight for the ears to see. His musical talent and his stage persona are honed and are as comfortable as an your favorite pair of old jeans. Caleb’s performance is one not to be missed.

Tonight: Living Room Coffee House features The Wicked Good Old Boys

 

Chaz Beauleiu on Flute and percussion, and Eric Blackmer on Guitar and Voice are a duo that call them selves “The Wicked Good Old Boys”. If you were at their concert you were treated to a sample of the sweat melodies these two fine musicians conjure up. The Boys dusted off some great old tunes from the 15th century. Classical is always new when laid down with soul and talent. Their musical well is deep, so there will be a variety of tunes.
