Live music is back!
Our 34th season kicks off on Saturday, October 22, 2022 — we hope to see you there!

Live acoustic music returns to Haverhill, with the amazing roots and soul artist Kerri Powers. Her slide guitar and bluesy voice grace the the New Moon Coffeehouse, on Saturday October 22nd at 7:30 pm. Tickets for this show are available at the door starting around 6:30 pm; doors open at 7:00. Masks are welcome but not required. Admission to the show is cash at the door $20; and half price for those ages 18 and under. Tickets may be reserved prior to the show by visiting www.newmooncoffeehouse.org.
Kerri Powers soulful music has deep roots. Bing Crosby and author Herman Melville are relatives. Kerri’s grandmother made her living playing piano and providing musical accompaniment for silent films. And her mother is a talented visual artist. Kerri grew up listening to the family’s extensive record collection of irrefutable icons like Bob Dylan, Neil Young and John Prine. “I would sit in a wicker rocking chair by the record player and sing along to the songs,” she recalls. “I remember hearing John Prine’s “Hello in There” for the first time and feeling that something magical was happening. It was a momentary yet memorable trip to a sad but hopeful place of lonely old faces.”
Kerri’s writing is intimate and expressive. Her sound is searing, yet understated. According to the Boston Globe, “There’s an authenticity at work here, a heart-tugging gravity and a lively intelligence to go along with the sass.” She’s toured throughout Europe, the U.K. and here in the USA to encores and standing ovations. Don’t miss her performance at the New Moon Coffeehouse.
Jim Trick opens the evening, taking the acoustic guitar down a path of percussive, intricate, and ethereal ranges creating well thought out melodic support for carefully crafted lyrics. A former resident of Haverhill, Jim remains connected to the North of Boston region, even as Boston has welcomed Jim with open arms, as a frequent guest lecturer at The Berklee College of Music and as a solo artist.
The New Moon Coffeehouse is a nonprofit, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to supporting and enjoying the creative talents of acoustic performers. We strive to bring you the best performers in a relaxing, friendly, smoke and alcohol free environment, where you can enjoy a great show, fair trade coffee, and awesome desserts. Bring your own mug and the coffee is only $1.00 for the evening.
The easiest way to get to the coffeehouse is to take 495 to exit 109 (formerly 51A) (Route 125 South). Stay on Route 125 South for about 1.5 miles. At intersection of Routes 125 & 110, look left for a red brick church. Turn left onto Ashland Street, which is just after Kenoza Ave (aka Rte 110). Parking lots are available behind the church. The coffeehouse entrance is also there, at the back of the church. It is handicapped accessible.

As we resume concerts after two years of pandemic shutdown, we are hoping to keep everyone safe and comfortable, and we’ll add to the concert schedule as we see the audience ready to return. In the meantime we encourage all who enjoy live music to attend not only New Moon shows, but also the concerts produced by Music on Centre and other Boston Area Coffeehouse Association members.

Stay safe, be well,

New Moon Coffeehouse co-founder, coordinator of Music on Centre, past President of BACHA (Boston Area Coffeehouse Association)
