Dala with Amy Black Feb 4th

The Circle of Friends Coffeehouse is one of Franklin's gems. If you haven't been, please consider going. There are a variety of performances available to choose from each year. This is very reasonably priced for live entertainment. The coffee and desserts are all home made and deliciously decadent! The acoustics are superb.

And when the lights dim on the performer, the trees in the yard appear magically enhanced through the window to create a very memorable effect. When I hear a song on the radio that I have heard performed at the Circle of Friends, I get transported back to that night in an instant! An amazing place to be for live music.

Oh and they do raise money for the Franklin Food Pantry each night that is greatly appreciated!

Jake says, "Don't miss this one!"

Canadian duo Dala performs at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse on Saturday, February 4th at 8PM. Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine of Dala have come a long way in a short time. The two best friends, who met in their high school music class and wrote their first song together in 2002, have since become darlings of the Canadian music scene and are now poised to bring their fresh brand of acoustic pop music to the world.

DALA has become one of the hottest selling acts in the folk-pop world, selling out concerts wherever they are booked. They won the coveted Canadian Folk Music Award for "Best Vocal Group" and were nominated for a Juno, Canada's Grammy. Last year they were featured in a PBS special "Girls from the North Country".

According to Exclaim they are "…the angels of folk music. Ethereal, eloquent and downright beautiful, the music they create is faultlessly performed."

Drawing upon influences like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Dala write songs that are both catchy and insightful. Amanda's ethereal soprano voice blends seamlessly with Sheila's velvety alto, creating the lush harmonies that have become their trademark.

The sheer joy with which they perform is infectious, turning first-time listeners into instant fans.

Amy Black opens the show. She lives in Massachusetts but her influences, like her roots, are clearly from below the Mason-Dixon line. Her live performances cover the styles and traditional themes of American music: loving, lying, drinking, dying and going to heaven – but not necessarily that order. She writes and performs her own music and weaves classics by her influences, including Loretta Lynn, Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings into her show.
The Circle of Friends Coffeehouse is a non-profit organization affiliated with Franklin's First Universalist Society. Concerts are presented in a smoke free and alcohol free environment at the Society's handicapped accessible Meetinghouse, 262 Chestnut St. in Franklin, and begin at 8:00 PM; doors open at 7:30 PM. Beverages and gourmet desserts will be available. Admission is $20. Please call (508)528-2541 or visit to purchase tickets or for more information.
