Park Coffee House

The talented local and regional performers represent a rich variety of acoustic music, which has been the 
hallmark of Park Coffee House:


     On Saturday, November 23 at 7:30 PM, Park Coffee House in Holland Patent will be presenting a split bill featuring The Marsh King’s Daughter plus Rick & Alexis. Both of these groups have been rather recently formed by seasoned performers with solid reputations and many local fans.
    The Marsh King’s Daughter is a local acoustic trio that mixes traditional Irish tunes, American folk and blues, some more contemporary music, and even throws in an occasional original song or two. The group is comprised of multi-instrumentalists Tavia Hach (violin, cello, Irish harp, and tenor banjo) and Mike Carroll (flute, whistles, concertina, and bones), who are joined by Dan Sargent on guitar. All three share the vocals. Hach, Carroll, and Sargent played together earlier in the acoustic quartet Springhouse, and in addition to performing together as Marsh King’s Daughter, continue to perform individually with other regional groups, including Craobh Dugan and Rattlin Bog. This trio has been gaining popularity since their first performance at Steubenstock this past April.
    The duo Rick and Alexis are of recent history. Alexis Loomis, a frequent solo performer at Park Coffee House, and Rick Kincaid, a member of the Rattlin Bog, began their collaboration when Alexis performed at Molly’s House at the First Presbyterian Church in Utica. Rick took the initiative to insinuate himself into the performance, and the resulting duo has proven to be satisfying for them and their audiences.
    Holland Patent resident Rick Kincaid has sung Barbershop, been in a folk string band, and is a member of a church choir in addition to being part of the Rattlin Bog for 30 plus years. He alternately plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, pennywhistle, keyboard, and melodia.
    Steuben resident Alexis Loomis is a veteran of local bands Lawless and the Rattlin Bog. She is an admired solo performer. Alexis is an accomplished guitar and bass player and known for her pleasing soulful voice.
    Rick and Alexis have developed a repertoire of songs from a variety of genres–mostly well-known folk rock, blues, or the American song book. They each appreciate the enthusiastic audiences of the Park Coffee House.
    These two groups are sure to deliver a memorable evening of acoustic music. The doors open at 7:00 PM, and the show starts at 7:30 PM. Admission is $12.00, $5.00 for students, and no charge for children 12 and under.
    Park Coffee House is located at the historic Twin Churches in the village of Holland Patent, just off Main Street (NYS Route 365), across from the park.
    The current PCH season ends on December 7 with a Local Favorites Fundraiser.
