Welcome

Rick Gottlieb to Feature at the Meeting House Stage on February 13!

Rick Gottlieb

Rick Gottlieb

Influenced by the legends of folk music, Rick Gottlieb’s music speaks to the “baby-boomer” generation. Known for his use of non-standard tunings, his exceptional guitar work, and a sweet tenor voice, Rick’s music can lift a flagging heart and move the soul in directions that the listener never anticipated

After receiving a degree in voice and performance from SUNY-Binghamton, Rick eventually settled down in the Boston area and building his skills as a guitarist and recording musician. Music is a persistent muse who doesn’t let go of her followers easily. And so, here he is once more, creating music all but designed for a listening room. Rick’s original music is influenced by other singer/songwriters like James Taylor, David Wilcox, Susan Werner and Jackson Browne. It speaks to audiences both young, old, and somewhere in between, who enjoy music of both style and substance.

Coffee, tea, and an ever-changing variety of wonderful home-made food is available.

How it works: Doors open at 6:30 pm and music begins at 7:00 pm.  Performers are encouraged to sign up for one of the three-song (or 15-minute) slots. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If there are a large number of open mike performers, slots will be reduced to two songs (or 10 minutes).

Thinking about performing? Everybody is welcomed and encouraged to share their talents, but like all things in life, there are Rules. Most months we will schedule a feature performer for a longer, 40-minute slot. Check out our Calendar to see who will be featured at our coffeehouse in the coming months.

Equipment: We have a small PA, four microphones, and two direct inputs for instruments that provide sound reinforcement. A nice old upright piano is available for use as well.

Dates: Usually held on the second Friday of each month. Consult the Calendar page to make sure that the open mike is being held during any particular month. Occasionally we may need to move the date for a given month, depending on availability of the venue.
