First Church Friday Folk Coffeehouse presents its fifth concert of the 2023-2024 season featuring the Cooke Family Singers at First Church and Parish Dedham 670 High Street, Dedham on Friday, February 16, 2024 at 7:30 pm in the Auditorium. There will be refreshments for purchase. Tickets are $15 and are available online at Folk Coffeehouse | dedhamuu and at the door. Doors open at 7:00 pm.

The Cooke Family Singers is comprised of family members Frances, Ruth, and George, plus an ever-changing and unpredictable set of special guests that can range from their 8-year-old niece to lifelong musician friends. Their sets are constructed and tailored to each performance venue, so they can range from an intimate trio with acoustic guitar to a full band. Vocal duties rotate throughout the performance as our goal is a variety of styles and textures. Cooke Family Singers sets will feature George's original songs, which tend to be humorous and slightly cynical takes on the foibles of our everyday lives. Some examples are the song "I Didn't Know that You Owned This Road" about driving in Boston or "I'm Going to be a Park Ranger", which is a wistful fantasy about a job change. Cooke Family Singers’ other songs are curated covers that feature Ruth and Frances' tight harmonies and can range from Lake St. Dive to Johnny Cash to songs from the musical "Hamilton". They perform at porch fests and other musical events in the Northeast. During the pandemic, the Singers did a biweekly series of online "hootenanny's" that were broadcast on Facebook. The Cooke Family Singers felt it was a small way to try to build some sense of community during a very difficult time. They are looking forward to participating in the Friday Folk Coffeehouse Series on Fri, Feb 16, 2024. Their music can be found on George's Bandcamp site:

First Church and Parish Dedham Unitarian Universalist was first gathered in 1638 and is located in Dedham Center at 670 High Street. Its lively music program includes choir at Sunday services, the Parish Players theater troupe, and the Concerts at First Church Saturday classical concert series, in addition to our Friday Folk Coffeehouse events.

General Admission: USD 15.00
