First Friday Coffeehouse

From Bob Moore

Musicians, poets, stargazers that are drawn toward the cosmos, broken hearts that are drawn toward poetry, lamenters of a by-gone day that are determined to live in the here and now:

All is well if you are willing to let it be. We are looking forward to another visit by French Canadian singer/songwriter Lucie Therrien as she is getting ready to charm us again with her original ballads and contemporary blues. She is sure to encourage us to sing some of her native and homespun tunes as well as songs you may recognize from your formative years. I think we have Lucie going on shortly after the coffeehouse begins about 7 PM. We are also featuring poet John Simon who will present some of his own poems as well as lyrical ballads and contemplative pieces he is known to recite by heart. John makes frequent appearances at the Poetry Hoot at Café Espresso in Portsmouth, and also hosts a month poetry gathering at Serenity Café in Rye, New Hampshire on Route 1A every third Monday of the month.


This month we’ll also feature a surprise artist/painter. She’ll be introduced during the coffeehouse, and will answer any questions about her work which is now being shown on the walls of the FUUSE Sanctuary. Hope you can make it for another evening full of poetry, music and art.

Blessings to you all,


The First Friday Coffeehouse featuring singer/songwriter Lucie Therrien and co-featuring poet John Simon.
