The Expresso Yourself Coffeehouse returns at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 31, at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church, 26 North Street, Medfield. This month’s Coffeehouse will feature Colette O'Connor, and the theme for the evening is “Messengers.”
Colette O'Connor has been touring/traveling and performing since 2012. Her music is a delightful blend of sunshine, kindness-philosophy, and fun New England wit. She has made her debut as a composer of neoclassical orchestral music. She has a timeless style that melds genres, from jazzy-blues to Americana/folk, woven together by guitar. A seasoned performer, Colette has become regularly featured on community radio and television from New England to Nebraska. Her second album, "I Think I Am,” was named top in 2016 by NPR station WICN FM 90.5, Worcester, and was nominated for Best CD 2017 Award at Worcester Music Awards. To combat war with music, Colette works as an emissary/organizer for Musician's without Borders and coordinates "World Music Day" concert/fundraising events on their behalf.
Typically held on the last Saturday of every month, the Expresso Yourself Coffeehouse is an opportunity for spoken word artists to share their poetry, stories, and songs. Come and join in the fun, either to enjoy as an audience member or to participate. Open mic readers have five minutes to share. Original or non-original poetry, stories, performance art, music or songs welcome. Sticking to theme encouraged. Teens and adults welcome. Refreshments from Starbucks are served. Medfield TV films the event and posts it to YouTube. There is a $5 suggested donation ($3 for students).
