The Linden Tree Coffeehouse will continue its 37th season of acoustic music with its new hybrid format featuring two of our New England favorites: Janet Feld and Esther Friedman. With current Covid restrictions, concerts cannot be held at the UU Church. A limited number of vaccinated audience who register can be seated in our alternative location. Live Streaming will continue on Linden Tree’s Facebook and Youtube channels.
Janet Feld is a performing songwriter appearing at folk festivals and coffeehouses nationally and internationally since the mid-80s. She has released 5 CDs, the latest one, Messy Beauty, was released in November of 2019, just before the world exploded. Janet is also the Founder and Chief Music Officer at Janet’s Planet: Music Lessons For Humanoids, Inc., offering lessons and classes to people of all ages. Her goal is to help people experience the fact that you don’t have to be from the “special talented planet” in order to play music.
Esther Friedman is a Boston-based acoustic singer & songwriter. She started writing songs in the mid-nineties after moving to the area from Cleveland, for Lesley University’s Expressive Art Therapy, Master’s Degree program. Inspired by buskers who braved street corners and t-stops she started writing and performing. In 1998, a compilation called Respond picked up her song Moon Over The Water. The compilation, and her song, received accolades from Billboard Magazine. Encouraged, she recorded her first CD, Eve’s Lament, with producer John Sonntag of Thunder Pumpkin Records in 1999. In 2016, she completed a second record, a concept album called Cult Confessions, with Producer, Doug Kwartler, Hollow Body Studio, her original soundtrack to a true story about a cultic misadventure. Today, she provides therapy via a private practice, counseling those in recovery from trauma, while performing and songwriting as much as humanly possible.
We hope that those watching will donate to the Linden Tree performers. When not able to get to live gigs, performers still need to pay rent and their other living expenses. Our usual at-the-door admission is $20 pp thanks to partial support from Wakefield’s Art Council of the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Ivy Chord Coffeehouse in Reading. Enjoy the show and pay what you are able. There will be a link to PayPal or checks may be mailed to Linden Tree Coffeehouse, 8 Dexter Lane, Wakefield, MA 01880 Thank you.
