Circle of Friends to Present Free Show September 24th

Mass. Cultural Council Funds 1st Show at Coffeehouse Since Shutdown

It has been quite a while since our last concert in February 2020!  There is still a lot of uncertainty, to be sure, but we are welcoming the community back to the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse with a free concert on Saturday, September 24th, supported by grants from the Mass Cultural Council.


Part performance and part presentation, this family-friendly public event will explore the origin stories and lineages of protest songs, how their meanings and impacts continue to transform through time and space, and how they have inspired – and continue to inspire – movements and cultural shifts within the realms of racial and social justice.

Pamela Means is a multi-talented performer, singer, songwriter, composer and producer,. Her multiple honors include being named Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s “# 1 Most Wanted New Artist,” “Wisconsin Folk Artist of the Year,” “Wisconsin Female Vocalist of the Year,” and her politically provocative album, Single Bullet Theory, was voted 2004’s “Outmusic Outstanding New Recording.” Pamela Means was twice voted “Best Acoustic Act” of the year in her hometown of Milwaukee, WI; and after setting up shop in the bustling ‘burbs of Boston, Mass., Pamela was nominated for an “Outstanding Contemporary Folk Artist” Boston Music Award. Means’s latest album, Precedent, elegantly addresses a range of themes from the state of the union to the state of the heart. Curve Magazine calls her “one of the fiercest guitar players and politically-rooted singer-songwriters in the music industry today.”  She performed at the last Franklin Cultural Festival and has appeared at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse.

Proof of vaccination required. Masks strongly suggested.

This is a FREE concert, but seating is limited.
