Park Coffee House in Holland Patent will mark the end of its spring season on
Saturday, June 3, at 7:30 PM with a
Local Favorites Fundraiser Concert.
The performers are all familiar to the Park Coffee House audience and are generously donating their talent and time to benefit the coffee house and Foothills Rural Community Ministry, its parent organization.
Park Coffee House invites you to gather with friends and neighbors around the small, candle-lit tables to enjoy an evening of musical variety. The line up includes Bill Kistner, a Local Favorites tradition. Solo performer Alexis Loomis will bring her fine voice and signature guitar style. Cincinnati Creek (Lori Thompson, Cathy Martin, Chris Pepe, Joe Rowlands) plays an acoustic mix and always adds some humor. Rick Kincaid and Terry Schwaner, the picking and singing duo Pandemic Therapy, are returning to Park Coffee House. Fiddlebutter, with Mike Carroll will also perform in this season finale.
Before the show and during the intermission, refreshments will be available for donation, which will benefit the Foothills Rural Community Ministry local food pantry. The homemade desserts are prepared by Park Coffee House volunteers and served along with the usual coffee house beverages.
Park Coffee House looks forward to seeing you at this Local Favorites Fundraiser, featuring an array of outstanding local performers. The doors open at 7:00 PM, after the sound check, and showtime is 7:30 PM. Admission to this event is $10.00, $5.00 for students and no charge for children 12 and under.
For the past 40 years, audiences have been entertained by seasoned and emerging performers at Park Coffee House. It grew out of a folk concert by a local trio in May of 1983, who then went on to establish a regular series of acoustic folk music concerts performed by talented, invited musicians. Park Coffee House has become a venue for the community to enjoy a rich variety of acoustic music from folk to bluegrass, to blues, to Broadway, and beyond.
Foothills Rural Community Ministry, founded in the mid 1980's, is a local, non-denominational, independent charity that provides assistance to families in need through the food pantry and several other programs. Even family pets are considered. Information on this organization, all the programs, volunteering opportunities, and how to make donations can be found at: www.foothillsruralcommunityministry.org
Park Coffee House is located in the village of Holland Patent, just off Main Street (NYS Route 365), across from the park, in the historic Twin Churches. These buildings, constructed in the 1840's from native Trenton limestone, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
In the fall, Park Coffee House will return for another season of concerts. Details on dates and performers will be released in August.
