Friendly Folk, February's Feature, with Jeanne Sable and Hal Pederson

Friendly Folk, with Jeanne Sable and Hal Pederson

We count our lucky stars that we have a place like the Rindge Meeting House to hold the Meeting House Stage. In addition its history and beauty, it turns out that the acoustics are pretty great too. For a small donation of $5, it’s a really fabulous evening out to hear top-notch New England performers and enjoy some local fare.

After being delayed a week by the Blizzard of 2013, the Meeting House Stage debuted on Friday, February 15. This time the weather cooperated and the room was filled with an eager and appreciative audience for opening night. In addition to Friendly Folk, February’s feature performers, David Lister, Jim Giddings, Doug Farrell, John Papp, Bob Goodwin, Rick Beausoleil, and Steve Tamulonis all performed.

February’s feature act, Friendly Folk, aka Hal Pederson & Jeanne Sable, wowed us with a great set. Their skillful guitar playing mingled with the combination of Hal’s pennywhistle and Jeanne’s harmonica produced a soulful sound and the audience loved it.

Delicious homemade treats were provided by Karla MacLeod, Elisa Benincaso, Craig Hoyt, and John Papp.

The next Meeting House Stage will be held on March 8, and the feature act will be John & Ursula Papp. They play all around New England but they happen to live right here in Rindge! Sign-up for performers is at 6:30 pm and the show starts at 7:00. Mark your calendars. We look forward to welcoming you to share a great evening with us.

All revenues benefit The Rindge Historical Society. If you don’t know it already, you should know that this is truly one of the town’s gems. If you haven’t been there, or haven’t been there recently, stop by!
