Our Community Cup Coffeehouse

Tree of Life Church, Springfield, PA

My friend Mike and I will share the stage and play originals and cover songs. Donation suggested to fund the coffeehouse.

This “different kind of coffeehouse” is a joint project of the Princeton Presbyterian Church, Chambers Memorial Presbyterian Church and New Avenue Foundation. It will primarily serve as a gathering and safe place for young and old people with disabilities, including autism, Aspergers, etc., and will promote social interaction.

There will be a structured activity scheduled each time the coffeehouse will be open. This will typically be followed by a meal where we will all sit down together. The music will then start at 7:30 and last for an hour.

The place will have a comfy, homey feel in which the young adults can come to:

chill out have a meal as a community socialize play a game listen to live music sing along dance (line dancing) tell jokes, have skits, play charades, watch magic do physical activities (Zumba)

Songwriter Concert with Peter Kardas

Vinyl Revival, Lansdowne

Join us on Sunday, November 4th at 2 p.m. for a special shared performance by singer-songwriters Peter Kardas and Tracy Colletto.

Peter Kardas is a singer/songwriter whose music has received air play, coast to coast, for over thirty years. He’s performed live on WMMR and at major events in Seattle (including Folklife Festival, equivalent to our Philadelphia Folk Festival). Peter will be performing a mix of originals and cover songs, spanning the decades. He blends traditional and psychedelic, acoustic and electric, old and very new. Peter was a member of the League of Crafty Guitarists for over 10 years (lead by Robert Fripp, of King Crimson).

Tracy Colletto has garnered comparisons to Jonatha Brooke and Joni Mitchell for her songwriting and vocal style. Her sophomore album, Chocolate Happy Cake, shares a personal journey of transformation and soulful perseverance. Previously, the singer, songwriter, and keyboardist earned an “Honorable Mention” in the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest, and was voted by listeners into the Top 20 Indie Songs of Women of Substance Radio & Podcast. She’s been nominated for Best Alt. Country Song at the 15th Annual Independent Music Awards, and nominated for “Best Indie Female Artist” by Radio-Wigwam in the UK out of thousands of other contestants.
