Come and bring March in like a lion! Roar, stomp or sing at the Coffee House on the Rocky Plain. CHoRP is excited to bring another excellent night of music Saturday March 9, 2013. New this year, the music begins at 7pm with the Friends of CHoRP Showcase: W. D. Cosmic, the Mood Elevators, Ergo Canto, Dave Allen and Julia Dixon Eddy, and Gnoic Glasa.

Our features are the Hi-Tone Ramblers and the duo of Bo Veaner and Carolyn Waters.  The Hi-Tone Ramblers’ traditional and original music is inspired by American roots music; a melting pot of Anglo and African-rooted songs, rhythms, blues and old-time fiddle and banjo tunes driving and stately, bouncy, quirky and eerily beautiful.  Professionally recorded around single mic, the band’s debut release, Inner Space, tips its hat to the days when neighbors gathered to play music in each others kitchens and front porches. The Hi-Tone Ramblers draw from the Appalachian String Band repertoire and add their own compositions and arrangements. Inner Space, released by October Mountain Music, is available on iTunes and Amazon.

Band Members:
Tim Rowell  Banjo, vocals
Cathy Mason  fiddle
Bethany Weiman  cello, vocals
Paul Strother  bass
Tim FitzPatrick  guitar, vocals

Singer-songwriters Bo Veaner and Carolyn Waters have had a wonderful musical collaboration for over a decade that’s still going strong.  With Carolyn’s blues and jazz influences and Bo’s folk influences they have created unique songs that cross musical genres and have been described as beautiful, captivating and fun.  The blending of Bo’s masterful playing of both acoustic and electric guitars and Carolyn’s powerful, moving vocals lead to performances that are powerful, fun, full of life and which leave audiences wanting more.  Individually, Carolyn has released two CDs of original music Count Me In and On The Verge (which include several of their wonderful collaborations) and Bo is currently working on a CD of original music.

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!”

Born and raised in Japan, Junko is a singer-songwriter with passion for expression of emotion and communication through song. Her musical foundation is a classical piano, but her original music she had started to write about a little over 2 years is an eclectic mix of blues, folk, jazz, R&B, and Rock. She writes from her personal experiences and she often thinks her songs are almost like utterance. She sings in English and Japanese on piano, guitar and electric bass.

In the misty dawn of 2009, an ancient race of singers, known only as Hengemen, came together to perform oddly likable songs and clever harmonies. With flowing beards that indicated rare encounters with sharp objects, these primordial warblers left their vocal legacy hewn into the rock-solid a cappella of Tonehenge. Now comprised of six mostly clean-shaven businessmen from the greater Boston area, Tonehenge performances have ranged from a soaring National Anthem to kick off a Lowell Spinners game to opening for Ball in the House.

Please join us for what promises to be an evening of good home spun folk music with the hospitality to match.

Tickets and refreshments will be available at 7 pm. General admission is $12. Students’ (with valid high school or college ID) admission is $8 and child’s admission is $4. Refreshments on sale include homemade pies, cakes and cookies, coffee, tea and soda.
