Why are there multiple calendars?
There is a Cultural events calendar upon which other community events are layered to create the Community calendar.

Respectfully, the Library and Senior Center calendars are too full of events to include all their events so we tend to focus on the major events. Town and School meetings are also kept separate. Links for all the calendars are shared here:

Garnet Rogers, April 27, 8:00 PM at Circle of Friends Coffeehouse


Garnet Rogers

Garnet Rogers
April 27 at 8:00 PM  - $25
 

Garnet Rogers is a Canadian folk musician who started off his musical career writing, recording and performing with his older brother Stan Rogers. He released six studio albums with Stan, two of which were posthumous, after Stan's tragic death aboard Air Canada Flight 797. Garnet then embarked on a solo musical career which saw him shift from the more traditional folk sounds of his brothers music towards a more contemporary style. Garnet has recorded over a dozen albums since 1984 and established himself as a "charismatic performer and singer" with his songwriting and smooth, dark baritone voice.

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.

Matt Nakoa, March 9, 8:00 PM at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse



Matt Nakoa
March 9
8:00 PM  -  $20
 

An award-winning songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist, Matt makes his home on the highways and concert stages of America and appears regularly with folk music icon Tom Rush. The Boston Globe says of Nakoa, "Between his piano chops and heartfelt originals on guitar, he drops jaws."

Born on a small goat farm in New York State, Nakoa trained to be a concert pianist before accepting a scholarship to Berklee College of Music as a vocalist. He developed his dramatic songwriting style with his college art-rock band, The Fens, and when the band dissolved, he landed in NYC. It was in Manhattan╩╝s all-night piano bars that Matt developed an uncanny ability to command the attention of any audience. 

2012 and 2014 saw the release of his first solo albums, garnering multiple songwriting awards, including a win at Kerrville Folk Festival╩╝s new folk competition.  Below is Matt's description of his latest CD "Antique Dances"

"Long before I ever sang songs, I wrote piano music. Antique Dances is a special selection of original works that I dusted off and polished up during my COVID lockdown retreat. They have an old-world sound and are based on old-world dance forms. Sometimes, when modern life feels too fast and loud, it is good to escape to distant times and places." 
 

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.

The Nields are scheduled for the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse - Feb. 10 at 8:00 PM


The Nields
The Nields

The Nields
February 10 
8:00 PM - $25
 
Circle of Days is the twenty-first album by the folk-rock group, The Nields. That is remarkable in itself. How many other bands have been together for so long producing new material on a regular basis? What is most remarkable is that this album may be its best work yet. The versatile musicians on this album explore a variety of genres, from Appalachian folk ballad to gospel to some of the most rocking songs since the earliest incarnations of the band. The production beautifully balances each sister's vocals, bringing out the best in their individual vocal styles and then bringing them together in their exquisite harmonies.
