Two monthly coffee houses offer live music this weekend: The Meeting House Stage on second Fridays in Rindge and the Living Room Coffee House in Mason on the third Saturday of the month. Next week – the third Wednesday of every month – is a special show at the Enchanted Bakery in Chesterfield.
Meeting House Stage
The Meeting House Stage offers live music from 7:00 – 10:00 PM with a 40 minute performance by a featured artist. This month’s performers are Thistlewood - a husband and wife duo performing Celtic music on harp and guitar. Doors open at 6:30 and there is a suggested donation of $5.00 to benefit the Rindge Historical Society. There is a full spread of treats (sweet and savory – bring your appetite!). Musicians looking to play sign up on a first-come-first-serve basis. Meeting House Stage is held at the Rindge Meeting House on Payson Hill Road.
Living Room Coffee House
Held at the Mason Congregational Church, the Living Room Coffee House also begins at 7:00 and has a featured performer. This month’s showcase is folk artist Linda Markey. There is a suggested donation of $5.00; students may bring two cans of food to support St Vincent De Paul pantry instead. Snacks and baked food are included in the admission. Performers sign up for a 15 minute slot beginning at 6:30, when doors open.
Over in the western part of the region, the Enchanted Bakery hosts an Open Mic from 6:00 - 9:00. This month (November 19) is the annual fundraiser for Joan's Pantry of Chesterfield. Pat Clark and Friends, as well as Santa Croce are performing; local musicians invited to come play to round out the evening’s entertainment. Free admission with soup and bread available for donation. Enchanted Bakery, located on Route 9 in Spofford, is collecting non-perishable goods as well.
