SESSIONS MUSICAL PERFORMANCES AND OPEN MIC ~
Takes Place on Second Fridays of Each Month
Performers and Friends of All Ages are Welcome!
Sessions is a hybrid Open Mic, Songwriters Round Table, Invitational JAM. We welcome your Music, Spoken Word and other Art Performances. We also often feature a special musical guest artist at each event.
This January, UCMH is pleased to feature LENNY SOLOMON, Singer/songwriter/guitarist as this month’s special musical guest.
Lenny Solomon’s style has been compared to early Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker. Solomon began his career in the late 1960s. A fixture at the now defunct Idler Coffeehouse in Harvard Square, Cambridge, he regularly performed there on Friday nights for over eight years. The Idler was a training ground for songwriters such as Geoff Bartley, Paul Rishell, Spider John Koerner, Bob McCarthy, and Ric Ocasek. During these years as a solo performer he shared bills with many touring performers including Chris Smither, Carolyn Hester, Bonnie Raitt, and Spider John.
From the 1980s through the mid-1990s, Solomon continued to write songs, but rarely performed in public choosing to raise his family and work in environmental research at Harvard University. From 1978 though 2009 he managed a research program that investigated ozone depletion in the stratosphere and other matters having to do climate change. Since re-entering the performance arena, he has released four albums of original material that combine elements of folk, country, and blues, and in the process has won a dozen songwriting awards.
Sessions are held in the subterranean Union Hall and have access (as available) to a Yamaha grand piano in the Main Sanctuary, a 70’s Slingerland kit, and bass amplification for the “Power Trio” for high-quality sound reinforcement. A/V recording (you supply 4 or 8 gig SD card) is available.
