Live Music at Voices Café!
Our vision is to be a center of inspiration and spiritual growth for those who come to experience performing artists whose messages are powerful, provocative, fun, and uplifting. The series will support the values of social justice, community, stewardship, and spiritual nourishment and will be a tangible demonstration of the Unitarian mission to Inspire, Connect, and Act.

As we start our third year we’ve made some changes…
We’ve opted to do more smaller, more intimate shows in the Meeting House across from the main building. The Voices House Concerts create the ambiance and feel of gathering in a friends living room – a smaller venue than the Sanctuary at the same address. Bands will be ‘unplugged’ and play to an audience of up to 55. Regular Voices Concerts will continue to be held in the Sanctuary and seat up to 150 around candle-lit tables.
Here’s the line-up for the 2013-2014 season. House concerts are duly noted:
October 12, 2013: Brother Sun
November 9, 2013: Michael Johnson and friends
December 14, 2013: Cricket Tell the Weather House Concert
February 15, 2014: Goodnight Moonshine House Concert
March 8, 2014: TBD – but it’ll be jazzy!
May 10, 2014: Cheryl Wheeler
June 14, 2014: TBD – hold the date!
Unless otherwise noted, all showtimes are 8pm. Doors open 30 minutes before show time.
|Up Next: Cricket Tell the Weather House Concert December 14 in the Meeting House. Get your tickets early…only 55 seats available in this ‘living room’ setting…up close and personal!
Based in the greater NYC area, Cricket Tell the Weather is a five-piece indie string band featuring bluegrass-inspired original music. Strongly influenced by American traditional music, Cricket also includes rock, pop, and jazz elements, contributing to the growing genre of progressive bluegrass. The quintet’s voice carries a new spirit that explores a century of influences, owing as much to the traditions that inspired bluegrass to the journey that follows.
Officially formed in January 2013, Cricket has hosted regular jams at the Outerspace in Hamden, CT and at Cool Pony in Brooklyn, NY. They have been featured at Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, Del Fest, Ossipee Valley Music Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Brandywine Folk Festival, and FreshGrass Festival, all in their first year. Their debut album, featuring 9 original songs, will be independently released in December 2013.
