Cold Chocolate 
Cold Chocolate is a groovy Americana band that fuses bluegrass, folk, and rock to create a sound all their own. With tight three-part harmony and skillful musicianship, this trio from Boston is impressing audiences throughout New England and beyond.

Since their formation in 2011, Cold Chocolate has quickly gained recognition for their original songs and high-energy shows. The band has shared bills with Leftover Salmon and David Grisman, and regularly performs at venues and music festivals up and down the East Coast.

"Cold Chocolate plays a style of bluegrass that is so ridiculously good, that I really love Cold Chocolate.  Singer and guitarist, Ethan Robbins has a depth and soul to his voice that blends certain aspects of soul and blues music into their traditionally instrumented sound, creating a unique quality that makes their music far more than a couple pickers playing Bill Monroe tunes.  This is something special.  High energy, excellent harmonies, and , of course, killer picking from the group makes Cold Chocolate an experience that you won't want to miss out on.´”  Brian Carroll, Red Line Roots

 

Eric George opens the evening.  
Writing with the lyrical conviction of an early Dylan and singing with the graceful twang of an Appalachian balladeer, Eric George is a Vermont-based songwriter immersed in American folk music. His albums are held in songbooks - each one printed, cut, and sewed by hand. With melodies and lyrics that stray off the beaten path, every song, album, and book is evidence of diligent practice rooted in tradition. 

"Eric George is one of the smartest songwriters in the entire indie folk scene and nobody knows it. That isn’t to say that nobody knows him—or, at least by this point he should have the entire state of Vermont on his side—but he wraps his way around the intricacies of his arrangements so deftly that one wouldn’t be mistaken, from a laymen’s perspective, to call his work ‘simple.'"

About "Braintree Folk at All Souls Parish Hall Coffeehouse"     

"Braintree Folk at All Souls Parish Hall Coffeehouse" was established effective September 2013 to promote, support and sustain local musicians, singers and songwriters by hosting live, local events in our neighborhood.   

All Souls' mission, "to come together as a community" is a perfect complement to Braintree Folk. 

The name ~”Braintree Folk”~ not only evokes one of the many styles of music we present, it also speaks to “community”. Our goal is to search for exceptional musicians and singers who perform a host of genres, including contemporary folk, Americana, bluegrass, roots, and for good measure, rock, blues, jazz. 

Braintree Folk plans for seasonal events to be held in the Fall, Winter, and Spring.  All performances are held at  "All Souls Parish Hall Coffeehouse" located at 196 Elm Street, Braintree. 

 The Parish Hall is handicapped accessible with easy Route 3 access from both North and South. 

 Ticket sale proceeds from each event help to support the musicians who entertain us; 
balance proceeds go toward continuing operational costs for Braintree Folk and the Coffeehouse; Coffeehouse proceeds from the sale of bakery items, refreshments and organic, Fair Trade coffee benefit All Souls Parish Hall.  Any remaining proceeds will benefit the All Souls general fund.

Thank You Braintree Community & Beyond For Supporting Local Music!
