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.

About us: It is our goal to create a wholesome relaxing atmosphere for people to gather, listen and perform music, poetry and the spoken word. Our stage is set for you to perform in front of a supportive audience. A $5 donation is suggested (students may bring 2 cans of food as their donation, to help support the local St. Vincent De Paul food pantry).

Snacks: Coffee, tea, water, soda, and juices are available, as well as popcorn and a variety of yummy baked goods from our kitchen. As always, there is no charge for snacks.

How it works: Doors open at 6:30 pm and all are welcome to sit, relax, meet and mingle. Performers (music, poetry, spoken word) are encouraged to sign up for one of the 15-minute slots. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Performances start at 7:00.

Feature performer: Each month we schedule a feature performer that is given a 30- 40 minute time slot at about 8:00 pm. Check out our Calendar to see who will be featured at our coffeehouse in the coming months.

Equipment: We have a PA and four microphones that are available. We also have available the very loved and in tune upright grand piano named, “Rose”. If you are a piano player you will love the warmth that Rose has to offer.

Dates: Third Saturday of the month, except for our summer break (July and August) and the month of December. December is now, the 2nd Saturday of the Month.
