Welcome to the Blue Moon Coffeehouse~



The Bluemoon Coffeehouse takes place under the twinkling blue lights at the parish hall of the Channing Unitarian Universalist Church in Rockland, Ma.  We have monthly shows, September through May.  Each show features a band and an open mic.  We also have Equal Exchange coffee and homemade snacks.  The atmosphere feels like...  enjoying good music with good friends.



Saturday, May 13th: Mama's Marmalade

OUR LAST SHOW OF THE SEASON! 

Mamma's Marmalade is a progressive bluegrass band from Amherst MA. They bring a fresh vibrancy to old traditions. Since their formation in the spring of 2014, the quintet has delved into the limitless capabilities of classic bluegrass instrumentation (banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bass) and explored the parallels of acoustic music, ranging from the blues to old-time, from gypsy jazz to bluegrass. The authenticity of their music calls listeners back to a time when wooden instruments, analogue sound and sweet vocal harmonies captivated the hearts of America. With a deep respect for tradition, and an eye towards contemporary music, Mamma's Marmalade brings an exciting new energy to the enduring narrative of American folk music.

You may have seen one of their spirited performances on stages at The Fresh Grass Festival, Joe Val Festival, The Iron Horse Music Hall and on many more stages throughout New York, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. Most recently they have returned to the studio to record their first full length album of original music, which will be available May 2017.

Open Mic Information

We love the open mic!   It's a great place to hear some new talent and to enjoy a variety of musical styles and approaches.  The open mic takes place between the bands two sets.  We usually have 10 slots available, 5 before the midway break/raffle and 5 after.   If the open mic fills (all ten slots are full or nearly so), we have each performer do one song.  If the open mic is "light," performers can do two.  If you want to perform, just put your name on the sign up sheet at the entryway table.
