2015 Performance Schedule

Coffee House Music Series

Friday, January 16:  The Wild Geese

The Wild Geese have all performed together for many years in the Charlottesville Symphony and/or taught at the University of Virginia. They have all been active musicians in orchestras and chamber music groups in central Virginia, and throughout the US and in Europe.
Each of The Wild Geese programs offers music from a specific time and place within the European Baroque tradition of the trio sonata repertoire. The current program, titled “Purcell’s London,” explores the soundscape of London during late 17th and early 18th centuries, and examines how its composers came to be so cosmopolitan in their approach to musical composition.
Members include Susan Black, formerly concertmaster of the Waynesboro Symphony and currently concertmaster of the Virginia Consort Orchestra. Nancy Garlick taught and performed clarinet with the University of Virginia for many years. Prior to that she played with the New Haven Symphony and taught at The College of Wooster. Content Sablinsky, keyboardist, also taught at UVA for many years, and was pianist with the New Orleans Symphony. A highly sought-after accompanist, she has appeared in many recitals and was recently invited to adjudicate in China. Lynanne Wilson, cellist, currently performs with the orchestras of Lynchburg, Shenandoah, the Oratorio Society and Virginia Consort, as well as many chamber music groups.

 7:30pm, $7. In the Rockfish Lounge.  Refreshments available.


Friday, February 13:  Eli Cook

Special Solo Acoustic Blues performance.

The legendary Son House (1902-1988) was known to say “Blues is a feelin’”.  Eli Cook’s music expresses that same raw honesty in a unique blend of contemporary and old-school styles, creating an original sound at the fore-front of modern Blues and Rock.  Eli Cook brings a powerful solo acoustic blues show to our Coffee House Music Series this February. Lauded as “the best blues singer of his generation,” (All Music Guide), Eli Cook has toured with B.B. King and has shared the stage with Johnny Winter, Robert Cray, Parliament-Funkadelic, Gary Clark JR, Roomful of Blues and many others. All About Jazz proclaims Eli “a blues guitar prodigy [whose] interpretation of blues legends Skip James, Charles Brown, Rev. Gary Davis and Nick Drake not only reinvents their classics, but breaths new life into them.”  For more info, visit www.elicook.com.

 7:30pm, $7.  In the Rockfish Lounge.  Refreshments available.
