Rick Quimby and Linda McCarthy met in the spring of 2014 at the Folk’n A open mike in Worcester, when Linda read some lyrics she had written that did not yet have music, and Rick eagerly offered to set them to music. Within a week their first song, Meant to Be, was completed and performed at John Henry’s Hammer open mike in Worcester, and since that time they have continued writing songs together, with Linda usually composing the lyrics and Rick the music. Their work covers a wide range of genres, and includes historical ballads, love songs, and light-hearted songs to tickle the funny bone. Their guiding principle is “If they laugh or shed a tear, we’ve done our job“. Their latest album in Stories in the Grain, released November 1, 2017. Although Rick and Linda each continue their own independent paths as songwriters and performers, they have come to enjoy working together and are devoting much of their artistic efforts to the collaboration.


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.
