The UnCommon Coffeehouse Presents:
Cold Chocolate on Friday, November 7, 2014
"Cold Chocolate plays a style of bluegrass that is so ridiculously good . . . Singer and guitarist, Ethan Robbins has a depth and soul to his voice that blends certain aspects of soul and blues music into their traditionally instrumented sound, creating a unique quality that makes their music far more than a couple pickers playing Bill Monroe tunes. This is something special. High energy, excellent harmonies, and, of course, killer picking from the group makes Cold Chocolate an experience that you won't want to miss out on."
—Brian Carroll, Red Line Roots

The Uncommon Coffeehouse is now officially venerable. Any music venue that has been a source for amazing live, acoustic music for over 30 years such as the Uncommon has been, can certainly lay claim to that title.
As one of the leading coffeehouses in the metro Boston area, the Uncommon has been the host for hundreds of top folk, big band, and world acts since its beginnings in the mid-80s. We have welcomed such musical greats as Tom Rush, Cheryl Wheeler, Tom Paxton, Garnet Rogers, Ellis Paul, Les Sampou, Bill Staines and John Gorka to our stage. At the same time, the UnCommon recognizes its responsibility to nurture up and coming artists, and has actively pursued engaging exciting opening acts. Come share an evening of amazing live music with us in an intimate setting in Framingham, Mass.

As a volunteer-based organization, the Uncommon has been extremely fortunate in having a dedicated corps of music-lovers who happily show up concert after concert, year after year, and in some cases, decade after decade. Please plan on joining them and your fellow music fans at some of our events in this, our anniversary year, and help celebrate the joy of live music here in Framingham.
