From Bob Moore
Musicians, poets, folks welcoming the sultry heat of summer, folks looking for a little refuge from the heat and from the calamities that world affairs are offering up these days:
As you may already know, music has a medicinal quality. The great blues legend, John Lee Hooker, had a tune from his Grammy award winning album “The Healer” that included the following lyric: “One night, I was laying down, Feeling so bad, so low, so low, My woman had left me, Blues came along and healed me.” So, you may have been under the spell of music at one time or another or turned to it in a time of need. Music has a universal quality of healing.
I wanted to let you know about our next coffeehouse that features folk and blues artist Chris George. Chris is a disciple of the blues tradition, and performs his music on acoustic 6-string and steel body guitars. I met Chris at a Writer’s in the Round Retreat at Star Island and Chris’ music drew me in right away. Here’s more information on Chris’ background:
Chris began playing music out of college and joined up with a group of teachers, where he was working, to create a band that spent several years together under different names creating original compositions. After retiring from education, he began to pursue his love of music in earnest. Currently he is an active member in the gospel choir, “Rock My Soul” and plays with a number of different seacoast musicians in bands focused on folk, blues, bluegrass and an assortment of eclectic interests. For the past six months he has been laying down tracks in Maine for his first CD of all original songs.
