Cooie’s clear and vibrant vocal stylings bring lyrics to life, whether she’s singing traditional tunes, popular songs, or originals. Her beautiful, tone perfect, soulful voice brings new life to both traditional and popular songs, and her music encompasses a dollop of blues, a touch of jazz, a bit of folk and some old time rock'n'roll. Cooie brings to each song a true and melodic voice as well as unique interpretive skills, using expressive vocal arrangements to take a lyric back to its foundation. Her beautiful and full voice is a joy to the soul and her passion for a song's meaning and spirit will evoke the same feelings in you. Cooie's soulful, melodic voice will surprise and please you, and her musicality will move you!
Stewart Foster first picked up a guitar in grade school and never put it down. Originally from northern NY state, Stewart moved to Vermont in 1982. He has played in a variety of bands for over four decades but is most fond of the acoustic music scene. He currently plays in a band called "She Was Right." The four member combo continues to perform all over northern Vermont and New York. Occasionally, Stewart performs solo for a change of pace. If you like the music of James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, Lyle Lovett, John Prine, Jackson Browne etc, you will surely enjoy attending one of Stewart's shows.

Kindness Gathering 2019 Photos
Our special summer evening will be back following two years of COVID.
July 24th at 7:00 pm! Open to all; free! Let's celebrate kindness ...
In lieu of all the sadness and pain in the world these days, once again, I just feel an intense need to do something positive, uplifting ... abut being kind to one another. (Yes, I know - we should be kind 24/7, 12 months a year.) As many of you know, I always celebrate by birthday with World Kindness Day. Today, I'm announcing our second "Kindness Gathering." It'll be located in the field behind The Paddle. A vigil, of sorts, with music and laughter and kindness. Please join me for a celebration of our better angels. I'll post more details in early June. Please mark your calendars and save the evening of Sunday, 7/24th. Parents, bring your kids - both the two-legged and four-legged ones. This is a non-political event. It's a kindness event. Thanks for reading, Mandy
