Green Wood Coffee House

 

continued

On Friday, April 19, the coffeehouse will host a contemporary Christian musician for the first time — other performers have occasionally asked whether it's okay to sing certain songs while standing under the church's big wooden cross. (Nobody's objected.) Singer-songwriter Sarah Masen offers quiet, devotional songs of her own composition; her album The Dreamlife of Angels has a stripped-down sound that features little beyond Masen's voice and guitar accompaniment. On May 17 folk legend Melanie comes to Green Wood, which is one of the few places she performs anymore. Previous Melanie shows at the coffeehouse have sold out, so be advised ahead of time that she has written some great songs in the years since "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)" and "Brand New Key."

Really, though, I'd go to hear almost anybody at Green Wood. Pick from the Observer listings a performer you're curious about, and the space should call forth the best he or she has to offer.    (end of article)
