Coffee House Concert

Saturday, May 20

7:30 p.m.


Johanna Evenson

and special guests the Late Model Children


The Gage Hall Coffeehouse will hold the final performance of the 2016-17 Season on Saturday, May 20th at 7:30 pm featuring some of our own home-grown talent from the Unitarian Church. The featured performer of the evening will be our multi-talented Music Director Johanna Evenson. Johanna grew up in Finland and enjoyed music from a very early age, first learning how to play piano by ear as a young girl. She came to the United States about 30 years ago and formalized her musical acumen, earning a bachelor’s degree in music from Hunter College in New York. Although music was her passion, Johanna obtained a Master’s in Social Work from USC after relocating to South Carolina. In recent times she has balanced work as a Music Director in a variety of churches while also working as a psychotherapist. In performing a selection of her original songs while accompanying herself on piano at the May 20th coffeehouse, Johanna will tell the story of her work as a psychotherapist. It will be a listening and viewing experience you will certainly enjoy. Opening the evening for Johanna will be one of our UU house bands, the Late Model Children (LMC) which includes Tom Ross on acoustic guitar, Mark Madden on percussion, Sue Findlay on keyboard, Sam Cogdell on Fender Stratocaster, and Mark Farnham on bass. Singers all, the LMC will blend their voices in some memorable harmonies, and they might even bring some surprise guests to perform a couple songs with them. Don’t miss this evening of great music!
