Concert to “Feed the Need”
Saturday June 20th 7:00 pm
At the Mason Congregational Church
3 Valley rd. Mason
$5.00 donation graciously accepted
Featuring Voci Angelica Trio with special guests Decatur Creek
and Gerry Wile
The Living Room Coffeehouse at the Mason Congregational Church invites one and all to an evening filled with wonderful music on Saturday evening, June 20. Breaking with the usual tradition of an open mic coffeehouse, this evening will feature just two opening acts
Folk singer Gerry Wile on guitar and trio Decatur Creek – followed by the featured performers, the Voci Angelica Trio.
Located In the quiet country town of Mason, New Hampshire, the
Living Room Coffeehouse typically fills the Fellowship Hall of the Congregational Church with live local music. This performance will instead use the sanctuary of the church, for its beautiful acoustics and greater seating capacity, as well as its shared mission in the community.
The evening offers a true “meeting of the minds” between the Living Room Coffeehouse and Voci Angelica Trio. The mission of the coffeehouse from the start has been to help build a healthy community, by offering a place for local musicians and performers to share their gifts with the community. For the past four of its seven years, the coffeehouse has passed donations on to the work of St. Vincent de Paul of Greenville, a local agency that supports programs to help people in the community who find themselves in need of a helping hand, whether for food, transportation, a utility bill, or just to make ends meet.
Voci Angelica Trio is more than a group of performing musicians. They have built on their members’ diverse ethnic backgrounds to create a musical mission – a humanitarian force promoting social justice and cultural understanding. “We believe that one of the best ways to pursue peace is to sing one another’s songs,” says trio member Jodi Hitzhusen. Meena Malik adds, “We see ourselves as musical ambassadors, using our performances to raise public awareness of diverse cultures and the issues they face.” From their website: “Re-imagining the boundaries of traditional folk music, Voci Angelica Trio’s riveting arrangements of global songs from every continent leave audiences mesmerized. Shimmering vocal harmonies intertwine with lush cello lines and vibrant percussion to create a musical fusion that transcends cultural divisions.”
Decatur Creek is a trio of musicians from the Antrim area who blend the sounds of folk, Americana, and ballad. They have been featured at the Living Room Coffeehouse and have performed at Mason Summer Music on the Green. The friendship that Steve, Jack, and Doug share is reflected in their performances, as the sum of all the parts lights up and energizes the music they perform for the audience. Their friendship and camaraderie spill out onto the audience with wit and warmth. Gerry Wile is a familiar face in Mason, he is a stellar guitar picker, and player of banjo.
This concert is a way to raise money, but more than that, a way to raise awareness of our shared humanity and our shared responsibility to care for our community – to “feed the need”
of our neighbors. We welcome all to join in supporting the mission work of Maureen Stenuis and her volunteers of St Vincent DePaul of Greenville NH. Help them as they work to meet the needs of our community.
**St Vincent DePaul serving the Geenville NH Area
Today, the St. Vincent de Paul Society has 700,000 members in 148 countries. In the U.S., there are 172,000 volunteer members. From a tiny spark ignited by one man and his six friends, a fire was kindled that still reaches out to people in need. The St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry in Greenville, NH, is one such volunteer-run group in Sacred Heart Parish.
