Off the Common Coffeehouse February 2019 Concert

The Off the Common Coffeehouse in Bridgewater concert on Saturday February 2nd 2019 at 7:30 will feature the Boxcar Lilies with Ric Allendorf as an opener. All for $15 and the doors open at 7:00pm. We are at the U. U. Church at 50 School Street in Bridgewater MA

The Boxcar Lilies
Combining spine-tingling harmony and exceptional songwriting, The Boxcar Lilies have made a name for themselves with their signature mix of folk, country, blues, and bluegrass-tinged Americana music.

Though each member of the Massachusetts-based duo has a distinct singing talent, Jenny Goodspeed (electric bass, guitar) and Stephanie Marshall (washboard, guitar) deftly weave their voices into a delicious whole – a sound that is sometimes delicate, sometimes gritty, but always innovative and soul-stirring.

Their trademark harmonies may have put the band on the Americana music map, but their genuine and charming stage presence and off-the-cuff banter helped keep them there. They’ve brought their engaging live show to venues across the Northeast and beyond, including The Iron Horse Music Hall, CaffĂ© Lena, Club Passim, and Philadelphia's Tin Angel.

Ric Allendorf

As a native New Englander currently living in Southeast Massachusetts, Ric has spent nearly half his life as an acoustic musician, illustrator, art educator, and breadsmith. He has featured from Maine to Cape Cod, from Boston to Providence, both as a solo performer and in the duo Still Willow.

Music is his tool of navigation, discovery, and anchoring. Songs find him in times when they are most steeped in relevance. His guitar is always nearby, sometimes pulling deeper into the unfamiliar, and sometimes being as steady and supportive as a mast. Whether performing solo or with others, Ric gravitates toward unique voicings, percussive frailing, and meticulous fingerpicking patterns that honor his influences – which originate back to the late 80's with the singer-songwriter resurgence in the Boston acoustic music scene.
