First Friday Coffeehouse 12/7/12


Wild Maple

The latest, from Bob Moore.

Musicians, poets, holiday shoppers recovering from Black Friday and Black Thursday and Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday, and what day is it anyway?

Yes, the last few days of 2012 are upon us. Chances are we have 27 days, 21 days till (you know what day), and you’re probably settling into watching Elf for the 5th time, or A Charlie Brown Christmas, or How the Grinch Stole Christmas, or making a fire and listening to some Mannheim Steamroller, or Trans Siberian Orchestra. So, I hope you can get into the mood, and I’m hoping we’ll see you this Friday for another cool evening of music. This time we’re featuring the very talented acoustic duo Wild Maple with Trish DeCaprio on fiddle and vocals, and Gary Dolinsky on guitar and vocals. The last time they were here, we were wowed by their musicianship and their choice of tunes. If you don’t know about Wild Maple, please read more below (and visit their website). So, make it to this Friday’s coffeehouse if you can with tidings of good joy, a holiday poem or song if you wish, and if we don’t see you this month, we’ll see you (fingers crossed) in January for some 2013 reveling.

Wild Maple, comprised of Trish DeCaprio on vocals and fiddle, and Gary Dolinsky on vocals, guitar, and octave mandola has an extensive background performing a variety of music genres. The duo’s repertoire includes a mix of traditional Americana, Celtic songs, as well as covers of contemporary roots influenced singer-songwriters. Guest percussionist Roger Ebacher will be joining Wild Maple for this performance. Wild Maple goes on at 7:30 PM. Sign-up for the open mike starts at 6:30 PM. Open-mike begins at 8:30 PM. Suggested donation for the coffeehouse is $3-5. Tell a friend, bring a dessert, and will see you on Friday, December 7th. For more information, e-mail: . For more information about Wild Maple, visit
