Park Coffee House


Park Coffee House

Jamcrackers, the trio of Dan Berggren, Peggy Lynn, and Dan Duggan, returns to the Park Coffee House stage in Holland Patent on Saturday, May 21 at 7:30 PM. This group, a Park Coffee House tradition, is sure to deliver a musical performance that is genuine and contagious. The Jamcrackers blend of folk, blues, ballads, and dance tunes sparks a rare chemistry and a guaranteed good time.

Dan Berggren has deep roots in the Adirondacks, where he was raised. Hearing stories and songs from local friends and neighbors, he developed a music style that captures the spirit of the mountains and has branched out across many borders from folk to symphonic arrangements. Dan’s original music has been featured nationally on public radio and television.

Peggy Lynn writes and performs songs that give a clear message of underlying passion, delivered in her sultry, powerful alto voice. She ranges from folksy to blues with ease, alone or harmonizing with others. Peggy continually draws inspiration from teaching, mentoring, performing, listening, and collaborating. She likes to state that “Every moment is a potential song idea, so be careful what you say in front of a woman with a microphone”.

Dan Duggan, a nationally touring performer and teacher, is acknowledged as one of the finest hammered dulcimer players in the country, He is the first recipient of the prestigious National Hammered Dulcimer Championship to have performed all original compositions at the competition. Dan’s renditions of traditional Irish and American tunes engage audiences in an excursion of musical styles.

These good friends and accomplished musicians bring a blend of humor, history, and spirit to their performances. As Jamcrackers, they combine talents to create a dynamic trio named in honor of the river drivers from lumberjack days who broke up log jams. Their music celebrates the Adirondacks and includes a delightful mix of traditional styles.

The doors open at 7:00 PM for the 7:30 PM showtime. Admission is $12.00, $5.00 for students, and no charge for children 12 and younger.

Proof of Covid vaccination is required for this event, so that the performers, audience, and volunteers can enjoy the evening in safety and comfort, making masks optional.

Park Coffee House volunteers will serve homemade desserts plus coffee, tea, cocoa, and cider before the show and during the intermission.

FRCM, a local non-denominational charity, is the parent organization of Park Coffee House.

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.
