Cosy House Concert Coming Soon
For the real music lovers, those who attend to listen, those who enjoy big talent in an intimate setting, there’s a unique house concert soon taking place in The Hague.
Wednesday, 16 May, Music buff Jen Buffington will be hosting Caroline Cotter and Michael Thomas Howard in her home and garden (come on sun!). Caroline and Micheal are two American songwriters hailing from the far flung corners of Maine and Alaska, USA.
Caroline has played over 450 shows in 42 states and 10 countries since her debut album, Dreaming as I Do, released and reached #5 on the Folk DJ Charts in 2015. With a captivating soprano voice and award-winning songwriting, her travel-inspired songs take listeners all over the world: from a Parisian salon, to the coast of Maine, through the hills of Colorado, to a bluegrass festival campfire, and into the depths of the human heart.
“Ms. Cotter’s new album is brilliant, the range of styles from a cappella to smooth vocals and jazz, back to folk harmonies – the album never ceases to surprise.” – Bruce Swan, WPKN 89.5 FM Bridgeport, CT
Caroline is now touring in support of her recent release, “Home on the River.” You’ll love Carolines’ “inner child” in this new video, and the title of the book the youngster picks up.
Born and raised in the wilds of Alaska, Michael Thomas Howard’s award-winning songwriting and unique voice akin to Cat Stevens is captivating audiences across North America and quickly earning him critical acclaim.
“Remember the first time you encountered Steve Goodman, John Prine, Steve Forbert, Nick Drake, or Jesse Winchester? That’s how I feel listening to Howard—as if I’ve discovered the real deal, a one-of-a-kind singer who also loves words and knows how to put them together in memorable ways. I can’t wait to hear where he goes from here ” “A Five Star Folk CD” – Jeff Burger, No Depression. (www.mhowardmusic.com)
Here’s one from Michael inspired by a girl from Virginia:
Together the pair create undeniably affecting harmonies and combine musical influences that pull from contemporary and traditional folk and Americana.
