Winter Potpourri

Linden Tree Coffeehouse, 326 Main Street, Wakefield, MA

Linden Tree Coffeehouse’s WINTER POTPOURRI is back for an evening of discovering new talent on Saturday, December 10th at 7:30 pm. Ten New England singer-songwriters will play two songs each with hopes to be chosen to perform during next year’s season. Audience input will play a major part in the decision, so please come down to help make the choice while enjoying new music and new faces. The admission for this show is a suggested $10 which will be shared with the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry.

Featuring and hosting the show is Kirsten Manville, a Wakefield-based singer-songwriter who engages audiences with melodic and lyric-focused Americana music, with a touch of blues and country. Her songs have singable lyrics and memorable melodies that capture stories about everyday life, the ups and downs, and in-betweens. Her latest CD is “Blossoms in the Sun.” It was a Top 5 pick in the September 2022 issue of Metronome Magazine.

Performing in this year’s potpourri are Ric Allendorf, Dan & Faith, Alex Fam, Folkapotamus, Rick Gottlieb, Kenny Selcer, Rob Siegel, and Erin Ash Sullivan. This year’s talents come with notable CDs and award credits. For a preview, most of the contestants in our answer to THE VOICE have websites where you can listen to a tune or two.
