The Open Book Coffeehouse

About the Open Book


The Open Book Coffeehouse begins its twelfth year offering live concerts  This year, due to the novel coronavirus, all of the concerts will be held virtually, via online platforms, because, well, the show must go on….line. This new way of presenting concerts will allow the Open Book Coffeehouse to share the music with anyone who has access to a computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone. The concerts are free to all, and made possible by the support of the Friends of the Canton Public Library.

Next Up! Blues duo Beaucoup Blue on Saturday, November 21, 7:30-8:30 pm

Beaucoup Blue  

 
              
Beaucoup Blue is the Philadelphia-based father and son duo, David and Adrian Mowry. From blues to bluegrass, their soulful tradition and contemporary styles mesh into an innovative and authentic Americana sound. During their years together as a duo they have received numerous awards including “Grand Prize Winner of the Billboard Magazine World Song-Writing Contest,” and the “Grand Prize Winner of the Telluride Blues & Brews Acoustic Competition” as well as top 40 on AMA’s Americana, Roots, & Folk radio charts.

And coming up January 16, 2021, Folk-rock duo The Whispering Tree

The Whispering Tree  
The Franco-American duo, which includes singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour, craft richly immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics, nature imagery, perspectives from travel, and a panoramic musicality that encompasses traditional folk, indie rock, classic rock, and 1960s pop and rock n’ roll. The twosome has garnered favorable comparisons to Cowboy Junkies, Over the Rhine and Aimee Mann.
