Winter Coffee House Kick Off Saturday January 9th at 7 PM

The Peacham Library will host its annual Coffee House live music series with performances each month from January through April, this year online. The Coffee House series brings community together around live music and camaraderie to warm our winter evenings. Although we can’t gather together in-person, performances will be hosted virtually, giving viewers the option to tune in via Zoom or Facebook livestream monthly on Saturdays 7pm.

The series kicks off this Saturday, January 9th with Nathan Colpitts & Andrea Otto as Pipe & Slippers, an acoustic folk duo newly located in Peacham, VT. They have performed in a variety of small venues across the NEK for the past 6 years and are popular at local farm markets where Nathan also peddles his wares under the name ‘The Singing Blacksmith’. The two perform both traditional and original tunes with Nathan on guitar, mandolin & vocals, and Andrea joining him in clear, crisp harmony. Presented with care and confidence, with a touch of humor and a splash of storytelling, these two are sure to delight!

Community members are invited to join in during a virtual open mic at the end of the show, performing from their homes via Zoom. All performances are free, although a suggested donation of $5 (links to be provided during the performance) is encouraged to support the performers.

All performances take place virtually, with two options to view:

>> Watch Live on Facebook <<
Visit the library’s Facebook profile at the time of the event to watch a livestream. Note: a Facebook account is not required to view this event on the library’s public page.
