Like most concert series, The Linden Tree Coffeehouse, based in Wakefield, MA, will not have live concerts at the Unitarian-Universalist Church this year due to Covid-19. However, we want to bring our audience and performers together to celebrate our thirty-sixth season of acoustic music concerts. Our national and international performers will be broadcasting LIVE shows from the safety of their homes while our audience members can grab their favorite beverages and snacks and curl up in their favorite chairs to listen. Up close and personal, Linden Tree Coffeehouse will be Making Memorable Music.
For the fall we have two all time Linden Tree favorites returning to our virtual stage: Catie Curtis on September 26th and then Joe Jencks on October 17th followed by Matt Watroba and Rev. Robert Jones on Nov. 7. All shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. There will be a link to the live streaming shows posted on our web page, Facebook, and sent to those on our email list.

Catie Curtis – September 26. She has been a national favorite singer-songwriter with a list of accomplishments spaning 14 albums, songs featured on TV shows “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Dawson’s Creek”, and “Felicity”; and movies like “Finding Graceland” and “A Slipping Down Life”. For over 25 years, she has been a perennially popular headliner, appearing at Lilith Fair, Carnegie Hall, performing arts centers, concert halls, folk clubs, music festivals and the White House! She was even dubbed a “folk rock goddess” by The New Yorker. Her songs remind you of a conversation with a friend. She seeks the everyday details that let you see your own life in her songs: headlights crossing a bedroom wall; finding love in your dad’s heart; and falling-in-love.
Joe Jencks – October 17. He is an international touring musician, award-winning songwriter of musical beauty, social consciousness and spiritual exploration. A 20-year veteran of the international Folk circuit, Jencks has released 15 CDs in that time. Merging conservatory training with his Irish roots and working-class upbringing, Joe delivers musical narratives filled with heart, soul, groove and grit. Blending well-crafted instrumentals and vivid songwriting, Jencks serves it all up with a lyric baritone voice that has the edgy richness of a good sea-salt caramel.
Matt Watroba and Rev Robert Jones – November 7 – The American Experience: From Roots to Rap, A Musical Celebration of History and Diversity. “Long-time musical partners, Watroba and Jones will present music that reflects history, social change, migration, hopes and dreams. This is music that is rich and diverse, direct and powerful. This is a musical seminar – not to be missed!.”
Although there is no “admission” fee to these shows, it is expected that viewers will donate what they can. Usually, Linden Tree Coffeehouse charges $20 for adults and $10 for those under 18 years old. Our performers have bills to pay and most of their live concerts since March have been cancelled for the year. There is much uncertainty when live shows will resume. So be generous if you can, by donating $5 or $10 to their Pay Pal accounts of send in a personal check to Linden Tree Coffeehouse with a note for the performer and they will get sent to them. We thank the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Wakefield Chapter for supporting our concert series that has allowed us to bring quality programming to our community.
