October Coffeehouse with Karen Salmon

Join us on Friday, October 11th at 7:30pm for the Peoples Church Second Friday Coffeehouse!

Karen Salmon performs originals and covers regularly as a solo artist and with the band Things That Fly. Married and the mother of four, Karen has been called “desperate” and “distracted” in her exploration of what it means to write songs in her 40’s. Since she first picked up a guitar a decade ago, she finds herself writing in the bathroom or minivan in order to have any hope of completing a song. (She is also honing her ability to write in her sleep.) Salmon’s music is alternatively playful and stark—and has clear undertones of overcooked meat and unfolded laundry. Karen wakes up to Led Zeppelin, goes to sleep to Ella Fitzgerald and dreams about Loretta Lynn.

The Coffeehouse takes place at Molly’s Cafe on floor 3 1/2 (take the elevator to the third floor and walk up half a flight). Admission is always free, and coffee and homemade lemon squares are available for purchase. All are welcome!
