The Homegrown Coffeehouse opens its 40th season at First Parish UU in Needham on Saturday, March 25, with a Homegrown favorite, Hatrack Gallagher & Friends for a night of Blues and Jazz, featuring Hatrack on Chromatic and Diatonic Harmonicas.

To quote Hatrack from a newspaper interview, “I come to music from the Blues. My taste in Jazz
goes to the Blues. Louis Armstrong: he’s my main guy… but you know, Charley Parker, Dizzy
Gillespie, Lester Young: these guys were great players. No matter how rich and complicated the lines get, the Blues is still at the heart of it. That’s my thing.”

For this show, Hatrack brings along his four friends – Seth Connelly on guitar, Roland Ochsenbein on piano, Tim Fiehler on bass and Keith J. Mania on percussion.

We ask that all attendees wear face masks while on the premises. There will be slices of Carrot Cake (of course!) and other packaged goodies for sale that may be taken home at the end of the evening.
