HAVERHILL — Live acoustic music returns to Haverhill, with the amazing roots and soul artist Kerri Powers. Her slide guitar and bluesy voice grace the New Moon Coffeehouse, on Saturday October 22nd at 7:30pm at The Universalist Unitarian Church 16 Ashland St. rtes 110 and Haverhill. (978) 459-5134
Admission to the show is $20 cash at the door; and half price for those ages 18 and under. Local favorite Jim Trick will open the night.
Kerri Powers’ soulful music has deep roots. Bing Crosby and author Herman Melville are relatives. Kerri’s grandmother made her living playing piano and providing musical accompaniment for silent films. And her mother is a talented visual artist. Kerri grew up listening to the family’s extensive record collection of irrefutable icons like Bob Dylan, Neil Young and John Prine. “I would sit in a wicker rocking chair by the record player and sing along to the songs,” she recalls. “I remember hearing John Prine’s “Hello in There” for the first time and feeling that something magical was happening. It was a momentary yet memorable trip to a sad but hopeful place of lonely old faces.”
Kerri’s writing is intimate and expressive. Her sound is searing, yet understated. According to the Boston Globe, “There’s an authenticity at work here, a heart-tugging gravity and a lively intelligence to go along with the sass.” She’s toured throughout Europe, the U.K. and here in the USA to encores and standing ovations. Don’t miss her performance at the New Moon Coffeehouse.
The magnetic Jim Trick opens the evening. Trick takes the acoustic guitar down a path of percussive, intricate, and ethereal ranges creating well thought out melodic support for carefully crafted lyrics.
Tickets for this show are available at the door starting around 6:30pm; doors open at 7:00pm. Tickets may be reserved prior to the show by visiting www.newmooncoffeehouse.org. Masks are welcome but not required.
