About the Artists

From the moment singer/songwriters Dave Falk and Lisa Housman met, they knew there was a songwriting, performing chemistry at work. Since forming Sweet Wednesday in 2006, the duo has released four albums to critical acclaim, toured extensively as an acoustic duo and with their full band, and been featured on radio and television programs throughout the U.S. and abroad.

In addition to inspiring fans near and far, Sweet Wednesday has been the recipient of several songwriting awards, including First Place in the Great American Song Contest, First Place in the Dallas Songwriting Competition, and Runner-Up in the John Lennon Song Contest.

An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Dave brings his unique style to the guitar, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, and fiddle, with a songwriting style full of humor, poetry and insight, while Lisa sings of long-distance friendships, having a hard day working as a clerk in a bakery in New York City, lost love, and those crazy mermaids you might encounter after being out on the ocean for several days.

About the Coffeehouse

The Open Road Coffeehouse takes place under the twinkling blue lights at the parish hall of the Channing Unitarian Universalist Church in Rockland, MA. Each show features a band and an open mic. We also serve Equal Exchange coffee and homemade snacks. The atmosphere feels like enjoying good music with good friends. Refreshments are sold at the event.

Admission

Admission is $10 online or at the door. Children under the age of 12 do not require a ticket. This is an all-ages show.

Open Mic

During the band's break we will have an open mic set. It's a great place to hear some new talent and to enjoy a variety of musical styles and approaches. Open mic is first come, first served. Each performer is allowed one song only. If the open mic is "light," performers may do two. If you want to perform, just put your name on the sign up sheet at the entryway table. Please bring your own instrument and remember that this is an all-ages show.
