October 17th: Bob Pope
Bob Pope started learning how to play the guitar in 1960 while living in Puerto Rico. He was strongly influenced by local, Spanish, classical and flamenco guitarists, as well as the ’60’s era folk boom. He is currently a member of the Monadnock Bluegrass Band, http://monadnockbluegrass.keithhillyard.com/index.htm, and Folk River Run http://www.reverbnation.com/folkriverrun4 playing at numerous festivals and gigs thoughout New England. He also enjoys playing in several other local groups, and can be found “pickin’ and grinnin” once a month at the Nashua Senior Center, as well as performing solo at several open mics in NH and MA. Bob has 3 daughters and 5 grandchildren, and lives in Nashua, New Hampshire with his fiancé Lisa Greenleaf. The Magic of Music.
<<<<<<THE LIVING ROOM IS >>>>>>
About us: It is our goal to create a wholesome relaxing atmosphere for people to gather, listen and perform music, poetry and the spoken word. Our stage is set for you to perform in front of a supportive audience. A $5 donation is suggested (students may bring 2 cans of food as their donation, to help support the local St Vincent De Paul pantry).
Coffee, tea, water, soda, and juices are available, as well as popcorn and a variety of yummy baked goods from our kitchen. As always, there is no charge for snacks.
How it works: Doors open at 6:30 pm and all are welcome to sit, relax, meet and mingle. Performers (music, poetry, spoken word) are encouraged to sign up for one of the 15-minute slots. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Performances start at 7:00.
Each month we schedule a feature performer that is given a 30- 40 minute time slot at about 8:00 pm. Check out our Calendar to see who will be featured at our coffeehouse in the coming months.
Equipment: We have a PA and four Microphones that are available. We also have available the very loved and in tune upright grand piano named, “Rose”. If you are a piano player you will love the warmth that Rose has to offer.
