Music & Entertainment, Top News

We have an extra show this month because our show in December was cancelled due to snow.   The show is January 25th and if the info looks familiar that’s because we did publicity for the original date.  Hopefully we’ll get a snow free evening this time around!  Here are the details:
On Saturday, January 25th,  Rick Mier and Kathleen Parks bring Celtic bluegrass to the Blue Moon Coffeehouse.   Rick is a San Franciscan banjoist who takes inspiration not only from the tradition of bluegrass, but also from the free improvisation and technical prowess of jazz and classical music. While attending Berklee College of Music on scholarship he won the prestigious Lowell Banjo and Fiddle Contest in 2012.  Kathleen Parks is a wild Irish fiddler from Newburgh, New York. She started playing the violin at the age of five and has gone on to play numerous shows including festivals and cruise lines with bands such as The John Whelan Band, The Jimmy Sturr Orchestra, The Lindsey Webster Band, and the Bobby Vinton Orchestra.  Kathleen is currently attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA on full Scholarship studying songwriting and performance.  Between sets by Rick and Kathleen, there will also be an open mic.  Tickets are $7 at the door and children 12 and under are free. The show starts at 7:30.   The address is Channing Unitarian Universalist Church, 45 Webster St. Rockland, located just beside the post office.  Visit the coffeehouse website at www.thebluemooncoffeehouse.com for more info.
