35 Church St., Watertown, MA 02472 All shows: 8 PM
Sat. Dec. 14: Fiends for the Bean o’ Caffeine:
Dean Stevens and Bennett and Lorraine Hammond
Dean Stevens, Jerk of all Trades, has a new title to his list of mischiefs: DRUG DEALER!! Coffee, that is. Imported from Izotalillo, a remote village in El Salvador he has been visiting every six months for the last twenty two years. This year, he took the plunge, and navigated the thicket known as importing coffee by container ship. It was a nightmare, but it worked. We now have a sufficient supply (one ton) to be able to offer you Izotalillo Coffee at the concerts, and to offer you dark and medium roast by the pound, fresh roasted once a month here in Boston. It’s the perfect holiday gift! Stock up now, or forever hold your peace.
Dean will be joined in this concert by his most long time addicted, caffein-addled customers and friends, Boston’s premiere folk duo, Loraine and Bennett Hammond.
The concert will be preceded by a Central American Holiday offering of tamales, pupusas and arroz con pollo ($15 suggested donation). There will also be crafts for sale, from the villages we visit, and of course COFFEE (!!!), your holiday gift buying made easy!
Born and raised in Costa Rica, Dean Stevens
Dean Stevens has five highly acclaimed
“Seeing and hearing Dean Stevens live on stage is proof that sanity, literacy, love, hope, and the forces of good are still alive and well and at work in the universe.
~ Geoff Bartley
LORRAINE AND BENNETT HAMMOND
Lorraine and Bennett Hammond play and sing in perfect complement: blending their instruments with consummate skill, they create a new voice for music that ranges in style from classical through Celtic, blues and contemporary.
The joy they take in their music is contagious, and their flair for tailoring their selection of songs and tunes for individual audiences lends a lively freshness to each performance.
“The Hammonds are folk missionaries of the first order, devoted cultural activists, teachers, event organizers, and performers who love to introduce people to the joys of traditional music.”
~ Scott Alarik Boston Globe
