This Month

April's line-up is coming soon.

Here's what was happening at the on March 21st  Coffeehouse:

Knuckleheads  to perform at coffeehouse
Headliner: The Knuckleheads
The Knuckleheads are a duo (Tom Easter and Kevin Brennan) based in southern Delaware near a little town called Byard.  We are a guitar, two voices, a violin, and mandolin. Our songs are an organic mix of blues, folk, rock, and anything else we may unearth from the refrigerator to create a really good tune.  We seek to be original in a world that seems to obsess over all things shiny and lasting only a few weeks.  We aim, musically, to be that favorite pair of jeans you’ve had forever: the more contact you have, the more you come to appreciate the simplicity and agelessness and fit.  Our website is: http://kheadsband.com 
Opening Act: WWII on Chincoteague
In anticipation of Chincoteague Heritage Weekend (March 26-28) Bill Borges and others from the Museum of Chincoteague share stories about life on the Island during the war. 

Visual Artist:  Daniel Thomas
In honor of the Celtic month of March, we welcome Welshman, Daniel Thomas, as our featured artist.   Dan is a self-taught painter who creates landscapes in watercolor and pastel.  His work is primarily centered on his love of the landscapes of the United Kingdom, and now his new home on Chincoteague Island. Dan’s childhood art talent wasn't encouraged in his strict military family and he has only been seriously painting for about 8 years.  He continually experiments with techniques in watercolor and pastel and finds Chincoteague to offer a new artistic challenge around every corner. Dan’s personal art philosophy –“My paintings start by capturing the mood and atmosphere of a sky.  My goal is to then translate this throughout the painting by subtly using the sky colors in the landscape.”  On display will be some of Dan’s UK and US paintings.
