Wallingford Public Library’s new four-part “Coffee House Music Series” kicks off January 25 at 2:00 p.m. with Dr. Stan Scott performing folk music selections from around the world.
Stan’s performance is woven from repertoire, images and experiences that he has gathered and created in four decades of travel, study, and musical life in Ireland, India, and the northeastern United States. Instrumental pieces for guitar, mandolin and banjo draw on rhythmic and melodic ideas from around the globe. Songs include accompanied and unaccompanied ballads, love songs, humorous complaints, and the overarching theme of nature and cross-cultural understanding.
As a folksinger, guitarist, mandolinist, banjoist and songwriter, Stan has recorded two albums: A Friend of the Wind (with Sam Scheer) and The Lotus and the Rose: Songs of Travel in Ireland and India. His Irish-New England trio Kitchen Ceilí, featuring George Wilson (fiddle) and Dora Hast (tin whistle and recorders), performs throughout New England and upstate New York.
The Coffee House music series will continue at the library with a different artist on the last Sunday of each month through April. The program is free and open to the public however seating is limited. Refreshments will be available and advance registration is appreciated.
