Music In The Round at Off the Common Coffeehouse

The Off the Common Coffeehouse concert on Saturday November 2nd will see Kim Moberg, Tom Smith, Rachel Marie, and Julia Mark sharing the stage for an amazing evening of Music in the Round at 7:30. The $15 tickets will be available only at the door when they open at 7:00pm. The Coffeehouse is at the U. U. Church at 50 School Street in Bridgewater MA

Kim Moberg
Kim Moberg is an award winning singer, songwriter and musician in the Folk/Americana genre.

A self taught, finger pick style acoustic guitarist, Kim's passionate and heartfelt vocals mesmerize listeners
while her compositions tug at feelings of melancholy, heartbreak, healing and social consciousness.

“Kim Moberg combines a lovely voice with a deep insight into the human experience. Her songs evoke genuine emotional responses in the listener, as she carries on the acoustic folk tradition in the 21st century. ” — Nick Noble, host of THE FOLK REVIVAL, WICN (Worcester Public Radio)

Tom Smith
Tom Smith’s songs are in turns humorous, touching, thought provoking, and inspiring. Deeply rooted in the old-school folk tradition, his timeless stories are told with a voice that is honest and sincere with melodies that you will remember forever. In the words of noted singer/songwriter Barbara Kessler, “Tom Smith will make you laugh and cry (maybe even in the same song) – a very captivating songwriter and performer.” Tom grew up in rural Pennsylvania in a family where music was part of the fabric of everyday life. As a young man living at the epicenter of the folk-quake that was Cambridge, MA in the 1960’s, Tom solidified what has become a life-long love of self-made music. Now a folk veteran of over forty years, Tom performs at festivals, coffeehouses, schools, and concerts throughout the Northeastern United States to audiences large and small, young and old. Tom’s monthly folk music blog, “The Kitchen Musician” can be viewed at TomSmithMusic.com.

Rachel Marie

Rachel Marie follows in a tradition of unapologetically forthright women folksingers, with songs that hearken to "overstuffed lines of Tori Amos, philosophical turn of Indigo Girls, and lilting vocals like Joni Mitchell." The social awareness of folk meets the introspection of the singer-songwriter tradition with a moderate dose of snark. Rachel takes a straightforward and honest approach to songwriting in an effort to foster genuine human connection and encourage empathy through music. Passion for using the power of her voice to shed light on injustice gives rise to poignant poetic statements on subjects from heartbreak and death to police brutality and immigration. An endearingly quirky stage presence as honest as her songs keeps audiences charmed.

Julia Mark
Julia Mark’s endearing warmth and charm has quickly made her a favorite in the Boston music scene and beyond. As a singer-songwriter and pianist, her music explores the duality of emotions, pairing wordplay and wit with the weight of being human. Julia Mark's jazz-inflected album "Gemini" (2018) contains lyrically rich songs about life on the moon, heartbreak on Earth, shifting homes, and palindromes. Julia Mark was a 2016 Iguana Music Fund grantee, spurring the creation of her first full-length album, “Gemini". In 2018, she was nominated for a New England Music Award for Songwriter of the Year and a Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year. In 2019, Julia was nominated for a New England Music Award for Female Performer of the Year.
