Friday Night Cafe: Jan. 22, 2021

The Friday Night Cafe takes place at the Cummington Village Church, 32 Main Street, on the second and fourth Fridays of each month from September to June. In this time of COVID-19, instead of a live show at the cafe, performers have the option of making “at home” audio only, self-recordings with whatever tools they have available: from phones to recording studios. We will be posting a collection of these recordings once each month on the fourth Friday. Looking ahead, we are exploring the possibility of live streaming until we can safely return to “real” live music.

Each month there is a theme. Performers interpret the theme as they wish and submit their recordings. The theme for January is “New.” This month we have three offerings:

The first is from One Part Luck. In this case “New” is new love, in the form of their cover of the Beatles song “I’ve Just Seen a Face.”

I’ve Just Seen a Face: written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, performed by One Part Luck

The next piece – “News” – is from a friend and supporter of the cafe. She shared it independently of anything to do with FNC. We were moved by the piece itself and struck by its resonance with the theme for this month – “New.” She graciously agreed to let us post it.


We have one more. This time from Josh Wachtel performing “The New Do the Boogie Woogie.”

We hope you enjoyed these offerings.
