Come hear original music in a casual, intimate setting. Three imaginative, passionate people on the stage taking turns pouring their hearts out in song. They may even talk a little about what compels them to do such a thing, which is something I always wonder about. $5 suggested donation. Bring your own refreshments. Don't miss it! This week's songwriters:
Tom Hanlon's music comes straight from the heart of a mature writer. The poetry is lyrical; the musical sensibilities are refined and exquisite. His guitar work is economical and elegant.
The title track from his CD "This Train" was a finalist in the 2014 American Songwriting Awards. Other recent accomplishments include a second place finish at the 2012 Making Strides Cancer Benefit concert series, Erie PA, and two Top 10 awards and six Top 40 awards on Ourstage.com.
Tom Hanlon has performed in a variety of settings, including The Long Island Sounds, Vintage, In Their Right Minds, and a Classical Guitar ensemble based out of the New England Conservatory.
Wanda Metcalf has been writing original songs for about eight years. Topics include cat ladies, molasses floods, cougars (the human kind) and anglerfish. She describes herself as "quirky". Wanda has two full length recordings and has performed her works at multiple venues in and around Boston.
Hugh McQueen has been writing songs and performing live for the better part of four decades. He has performed at over two thousand live shows both as a solo artist and with bands and is currently working on a new independent album scheduled for release in 2017. His songs reflect a lifetime of experience...a continuous journey.
