On November 14, ThistleWood will be our Feature Performer at the Meeting House Stage!



In November, husband and wife duo ThistleWood will be our feature performers.

The Husband and wife team of JP and Pam Stohrer have decades of experience as musicians. JP has almost 40 years of experience playing in a variety of local bands, and Pam’s classical training as a pianist give ThistleWood a dynamic sound that can be alternately soothing or energizing, but always exciting.

ThistleWood has performed in New Hampshire and Maine at venues including weddings, local coffeehouses, Farmers’ Markets and family reunions.

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.
