February 1, 7:00 pm, Winter Coffeehouse with Fifth Business – Join us for our annual “Coffee House” live music series with performances each month from January through March. The Coffee House series brings community together around live music, warm beverages, refreshments, and camaraderie during cold winter evenings. The community is invited to join in during an open mic session following each show. A $5 suggested donation is requested.

Fifth Business is a crowd favorite, rejoining the fine folks of Peacham for (at least) the 5th year in a row to fight the chill of winter by huddling around the metaphorical fires of song and mirth. They will be sharing pub songs and art tunes leavened by the occasional sincere ballad. Nicolas Anzalone’s fiddle contributes ethereal flights and wry commentary; Stuart Corso keeps everyone alert with his accordions; Hannah Davie adds sparkle with mandolin; and Steve Davie leads the herd with guitar and octave mandolin. Heather Alger and Kate Davie provide random percussion, and everyone sings in a repertoire that is Not (entirely) Safe For Work.
