Thatcher Harrison returned to Mahogany Shoals last Wednesday in a reprise of what was “the happiest day of his live,” opening for Walter McDonough three years ago.
This week, the Dartmouth Farmers Market will sponsor talented nine year-old musician Thatcher Harrison in the Community Tent. Thatcher will be playing five different instruments throughout the afternoon, and sharing a voice that has been quoted as being “that of an angel” in appearances with local jazz musicians Charlie Cover and Joanne Doherty.
Special thanks are in order to musician and long-time resident Charlie Cover, who entertained shoppers all afternoon long with his guitar and melodious and wide-reaching voice. Mr. Cover rocked shoppers and vendors who appreciated the variety of musical numbers and styles offered. Charlie’s showmanship came through as he urged fellow musicians to join him in several numbers in the community tent. A number of shoppers were found sitting on the grass in the middle of the afternoon rain storm enjoying number after number.
At Cafe Arpeggio (800 Purchase St.), the featured performer is Thatcher Harrison, a talented 6-year-old, from 6 to 7 p.m. Open mic follows from 7 to 10 p.m., hosted by Art Tebbetts.
An open mic/coffeehouse is built not of brick and mortar but of musical passion.... Art Tebbetts would be happy to hear that....
Now he’s passing the favor along to the performers coming up at Cafe Arpeggio.
They are a diverse and eclectic group. There are “living-room pickers,” touring professionals, students, old-timers, terrified neophytes making their first public appearances — and even a 6-year-old guitarist named Thatcher Harrison, who blew the room away last Thursday with his rendition of “Folsom Prison Blues.”
