with special guest
February 8 - $20
Husband and wife duo Small Potatoes returns to the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse in Franklin on Saturday, February 8th. When you see Small Potatoes (Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso) perform, you hear two great voices, some fine guitar playing, and a touch of tin whistle, flute, mandolin, bodhran and other percussion toys. Together they present a truly rare blend of vocal and instrumental abilities, award-winning songwriting and arranging talents. http://smallpotatoesmusic.com/
The Chicago based folk duo say it has taken them years of careful indecision to develop a repertoire they describe as "Celtic to Cowboy." Superb musicianship and showmanship, award-winning songwriting, and a strong sense of tradition has made them, as Dirty Linen Magazine once said, "one of the most polished, inventive, and entertaining shows on the circuit."
Award winning Fall River performer Mike Laureanno will open the show. A passionate performer, Mike's songs are visceral and evocative. He is proud of his roots and many of his songs deal with his gritty blue collar hometown and the lives of his family and friends. He is a winner of the 2017 Wildflower, TX songwriting contest, the 2016 Woody Guthrie songwriting contest and a 2016 Kerrville New Folk, TX finalist. http://mikelaureanno.weebly.com/
