Although we cannot charge admission to these shows, it is expected that viewers would 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 last March were 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.
Thank you also to the Ivy Chord Coffeehouse who is partnering with Linden Tree for this special performance.
