First Friday Coffeehouse

From Bob Moore

Musicians, poets, storytellers, contra-dance enthusiasts, snow-bounders, flatlanders, folks returning from the south and wishing they were headed back south once they got home:

I hope you’re getting used to the snow. I guess we might as well, since apparently there is more weather coming our way. As it looks now, I think we’re in the clear for this Friday night. We have a musician coming up from the Boston area to perform at this coming First Friday Coffeehouse. He has been playing the Boston circuit for many years and has opened for many noteworthy musicians. His name is Howie Newman. He’s an entertainer by trade, and has several CD recordings to his credit. You can learn more about his music and background at: .

Here’s more on Howie’s background:

Howie Newman is hailed as one of the most engaging performers on the New England folk circuit. He combines music, comedy and audience participation to provide a truly unique entertainment experience. Newman has opened for Tom Paxton, Vance Gilbert, Bill Staines, Lui Collins, Don White, Modern Man and many others. His songs have received national airplay on the Dr. Demento Show, National Public Radio and Midnight Special as well as dozens of other outlets across North America.
