First Friday Coffeehouse 4/6/12

From Bob Moore

Poets, musicians, fiddleheads, folks that have had enough of global warming and are wishing it was spring again (I think you got your wish):

Hope life is treating you well, or you’re treating yourself to life, or you’re done looking around the corner everyday and the days are beginning to look less like a Coen Brothers’ movie with a twisted plot and feeling more like a comfortable pair of jeans. We have one of our favorite bands returning to the First Friday Coffeehouse, the notorious, diverse, and ever impressive “Deep Hole Road”. The band has been laying low until recently, have been working on a recording project, and also been working on some new material. They’re excited to try out their new tunes at this Friday’s coffeehouse. If you are unfamiliar with Deep Hole Road, the band is a foursome featuring two fiddlers, Sharon Pangaro and Sue Cassista (Sharon and Sue perform on an array of other instruments including bodhran and xylophone), and their lovely husbands who play a number of string instruments, Nick Pangaro and Phil Cassista. The evening will be guaranteed to thrill you with surprises, stories, and New Hampshire humor (if there is such a thing).

As always they’ll be an open-mike following the featured set. See below for more information on Deep Hole Road.

Deep Hole Road is a fun string band with two couples: Sue & Phil Cassista and Sharon & Nick Pangaro. DHR has been exciting people in southern and central New Hampshire and Massachusetts with an eclectic mix of roots music ranging from bluegrass and old time to blues, Cajun and folk. The two fiddlers, Sharon and Sue, bring electricity to their music with beautiful harmonies and intertwined melodies. Both supplement their fiddling with other instruments, including bodhran, djembe, cajon, guitar and kazoo. Phil provides superb melodies and rhythm on guitar as well as his distinctive banjo pickin’ style. Nick entertains audiences with his wonderful performances on mandolins, bass, guitar and harmonica. Together, Nick and Phil demonstrate strong songwriting skills and the entire group comes together with beautiful vocal harmonies.

DHR has opened the Richmond Blueberry Fiddle Festival in Keene, been featured performers at several coffeehouses in Southern and Central NH, and opened for country/bluegrass legends Holly and Barry Tashian, and Sweet, Hot and Sassy. They have also performed at The Big E in Springfield, MA and various town celebrations such as Days On the Plains in Kingston, Nottingham Day, the Nashua Holiday Stroll and the Make Some Noise Series in Haverhill, MA.

I don’t know if Glenn Roth will be packing this unusual instrument for his performance on Friday. I was casting about for a video to highlight this guitar virtuoso and his talents and this one fit fine.

Here is the latest from Bob Moore concerning this terrific local event.

Best,

Mike

Musicians, guitarists, poets, dreamers, movie enthusiasts that have seen the film “August Rush” at least three times:

I hope the birds in the morning are lifting your spirits, and getting you enthused about planting a garden, or going for long walks. We have a special featured artist stopping by this Friday who hails from Norwalk, CT. He contacted me a few months back, shared some of his music, and his sound was terrific to hear. Glenn Roth plays high-energy acoustic finger-style guitar originals, with influences ranging from Tommy Emmanuel to Tool. Based in Connecticut, Glenn tours regularly throughout the northeast and beyond. Glenn has won fans worldwide through his touring, YouTube videos, and busking in the New York City subway system as a licensed performer in the Music Under New York program. He has been hailed as “A gifted player on the rise…” (20th Century Guitar), with “delicate, accomplished solo acoustic guitar work” (Play, New Haven).

We’re excited to have him visit The First Friday Coffeehouse. Come on down, bring a friend, and we’ll see you then.

Steve Brennan

 A note from Bob Moore,

Hi musicians, poets, folks that may be a little over-radiated and recovering from the latest solar flare activity:

As some of you know, we had a fine evening of poetry and music in January. It was a good feeling trading various art forms with one another as often happens, and having John Simon finish off the evening as he does with some memorable poems about personal pain, unrequited love, joy, and the myriad of chronic dilemmas that love has to offer (if and when we dare to walk through the door). We’re set to do it again this Friday. As a special treat, we’re bringing back Exeter Music owner, and baritone singer/songwriter/guitarist Steve Brennan. Steve has entertained us before in several genres including a duo performance with his co-owner guitarist Rich Bowles. He’s also appeared with an a two-women, two-men a capella group performing familiar songs including The Beatles and Billy Joel in rich four-part harmony. This time around, Steve will be playing solo, and playing songs from his latest CD, A Feeling like That, on 6 and 12-string guitar. Steve has a wry sense of humor, and shares his daily toils and adventures without reservation. Come on down and check him out. For more information about Steve’s music, please visit:

We’ll see you this Friday…
