Since 2016, First Parish's coffeehouse has been highlighting the incredible talent of local South Shore adults and youth. The Blue Boat Coffeehouse provides a fun, family-friendly, safe and sober evening out for the whole community, while raising funds and awareness for a local non-profit organization.
Run by First Parish volunteers, the show's lineup is managed by Ken Swart. Although the show is not open-mic, Ken encourages performers of any age and genre — he has brought in brass bands, blues, and bluegrass... folk and funk... celtic and a capella... poetry and piano... spoken word and stepdancers!
We're on hiatus during Covid, but will be gathering and playing together again soon.
