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:

Due to the current situation caused by the Covid-19 virus, Park Coffee House in Holland Patent has canceled the remainder of the season.  
Hello Friends of Park Coffee House,
Here's another chance to help keep live music alive. Matt Mielnick requested that we send the word out to all of you. Matt, with Ann Carey as Nook & Crannie,  was the last concert at Park Coffee House of our shortened season. Some of the scheduled performers (Nick Piccininni and The Cadleys) have appeared at Park Coffee House.
All the best from the Park Coffee House Committee
Greetings and good health to you all (mental and physical)
This is Matt Mielnick.  I’m the Music Coordinator for Unity Hall, the performance venue in Barneveld, NY just north of Utica.  I’m writing to invite you to join us for our new ten week series of online mini-concerts.  Starting next Saturday, May 9th, and for every Saturday after that for ten weeks in all, Unity Hall has invited ten of the most feel-good musical acts to perform a short concert (about half an hour) that will be broadcast on the Unity Hall website.  That’s every Saturday night at 8 p.m. at  We plan to spend every last cent of a grant we received to pay these folks what they deserve.  For some it may be the only paid performance they have in a month or longer.  There’s a list of some of these performers below.  More information will be posted on the website each week. 
Please join us.  There’s no admission charge.  There will be a tip jar on your screen that will further reward the musicians’ efforts.  That’s up to you.  Leave room at the back of your living room for a dance or two.  Grab your favorite beverage and a front row seat.  Remember when Don McLean sang about “the day the music died†?  We’re not going to let that happen here!
Here's the schedule for the first five weeks:
May 9:  Virtuoso string player (and the newest member of the Yonder Mountain String Band) Nick Piccininni
May 16: Finalist on NBC’s The Voice (and native of Clinton) Ryan Quinn
May 23: Mason McDowell, an impressive singer/ songwriter, keyboardist from Hamilton, NY
May 30:  From Syracuse, John and Cathy Cadley with their wonderful harmonies and guitar work
June 6:  Ithaca’s own Joe Crookston, Folk Alliance International’s Artist Resident of the Year


Note Time:  All shows start at 7:30 PM.  Doors open at 7:00.
