The Coffee House on the Rocky Plain is dedicated to
showcasing emerging local musical talent
Looking for a great place to take Mom to for Mother’s Day? Bring her to another wonderful production presented by the Coffee House on the Rocky Plain. On Saturday, May 12 we will bring you a great show featuring Kate Chadbourne, Ryan, Ortolani, and Fleming who are opening for The Mood Elevators.
This promises to be our best show of the year, arrive early to get some home baked desserts and a good seat. Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7:30pm.


Ryan & Ortolani have been performing together since the turn of the century. This duo is a versatile group who combine decades of musical experience to produce some of the sweetest harmonic and rhythmic sounds around. You may hear catchy original tunes, American acoustic classics, country blues, Celtic covers, swing and jazz standards… depending on their mood and what their audience wants to hear. Most recently, the talented vocalist Melissa Fleming has been joining them on stage, adding even more depth to their harmonies, making them a trio worth hearing.

Kate Chadbourne is a singer, storyteller, and poet whose performances combine traditional tales with music for voice, harp, flutes, and piano. She holds a Ph.D. in Celtic Languages and Literatures from Harvard where she teaches courses in Irish language and folklore  but the heart of her understanding of Irish folk tradition comes from encounters with singers, storytellers, and great talkers in Ireland.

Get “In The Mood” with The Mood Elevators! Three strong solo artists blend in tight vocal harmony to perform a combination of standard and original arrangements that breathe new life into some of the best-loved standards of the Swing Era, putting a fresh face on nostalgia with a fun, upbeat performance style. Our repertoire includes dance-floor favorites from the 1930s and 1940s as well as obscure gems from the early decades of the 20th Century, and we’ve performed with some of the best musicians in the Boston area. Sweet and sentimental or rousing and raucous, “The Stuff Is Here!”
