The Union Coffeehouse will be back this summer for a shortened season with three concerts in the Union Church Friendship Hall starting in June.  It will be wonderful to return to this inviting venue that has been the scene of so much wonderful music since 2006.  We have a terrific lineup of headliner talent set for the summer of 2022, so mark your calendars and plan to attend the following outstanding concerts:

Saturday, June 11 - For our first concert in 2022, the Union Coffeehouse welcomes for the first time Gilead Road, an acoustic duo from New London, CT.  Lizzy Hess and Glenn Stevens sing original songs sprinkled with favorite gems of contemporary and traditional songwriting. Their songs tell stories of personal history, reflections on life, and a search for humor in today’s wild world.  You can hear echoes of John Prine, Nancy Griffith, Kate Wolfe, and David Crosby in their music.  Lizzy sings and Glenn brings his guitar, voice, and songwriting. Together they spark a chemistry that is more than the sum of its parts.  You won’t want to miss their engaging and heartfelt music.

Saturday, July 9 - For the mid-summer concert of our 2022 summer season, the Union Coffeehouse will feature the delightful music of Simons and Goodwin.  The tight-knit harmonies of Renee Goodwin and Bob Simons have made them a perennial favorite here at the Coffeehouse.  This wonderfully talented folk-singing duo performs both original and traditional folk and popular songs complemented by Bob’s intricate guitar accompaniment.  There is a warmth that comes through their songs and it makes you feel like you're listening to old friends.

Saturday, August 20 - The Union Coffeehouse is pleased to bring back Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards to close out our 2022 season on Saturday, August 20.  Raianne and Mark are clearly inheritors of a timeless legacy, creating music that is both original and evocative of a rich tradition. Blending distinctive voices and a wide range of accompaniment (guitar, harmonica, ukulele, clarinet, penny whistle, electric bass), their songs have been well-received by audiences around the eastern United States and Canada since 2010.  Transcending the genre of folk Americana, their music echoes inspiration from traditional folk duos and singer/songwriters like Ian & Sylvia, Kate Wolf and Neil Young – combining beautiful harmonies and a lyrical intensity, while establishing a unique sound of their own.

Please show your support for this wonderful venue and for the music we offer by coming to the Union Coffeehouse concerts and bringing your friends.  The concerts will start at 7:00 PM in Friendship Hall and the featured performers start the show.  They will be followed by the serendipitous group of performers who show up for the Open Mic time.
