The First Friday Coffeehouse will feature

singer/musician/teacher/multi-linguist Lucie Therrien, accompanied by

Canadian music with a flare and joy that is infectious and uplifting. Lucie

traditions and will be presenting samples of these genres as well. Neal

Zweig has been playing and recording acoustic and electric lead and accent

guitar with performers for 11 years throughout New England. Neal has

established himself as a prominent performing and session recording artist

Music folks:

This weekend is going to be a busy one. In addition to the First Friday

Coffeehouse (featuring Midge Goldberg and Robert Crawford) on Friday night,

we’re also hosting a Folk Concert in the FUUSE Sanctuary on Saturday night

at 7:30 PM. We have Curt Bessette and Neal Zweig coming back to play some

heartfelt acoustic tunes-music to bring you through the Easter holiday

feeling uplifted and ready for a spring that will stop teasing and hopefully

stick around for good. As some of you know, Neal is a fixture at the

coffeehouse. He does some wonderful accent guitar work and has learned to

backup any songwriter with spatial, musical elegance. Curt is a strong

songwriter and is terrific with an audience. They were both warmly received

at the First Friday Coffeehouse in December of 2009. Find more information

below regarding Curt and Neal’s performance.
