ARCANUM – Singer/songwriter Sarah Goslee Reed will perform at Arcanum Historical Society’s Wayne Trail House on Thursday, March 31 as part of Darke County Center for the Arts’ Coffeehouse Series; the show begins at 7 p.m.
“Sarah sings about beauty and the natural world, as well as love and loss ,” said DCCA Artist Director Keith Rawlins. “Her richly beautiful voice and down-to-earth, uplifting songs will please audiences of all ages.”
DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series presents performances in congenial venues with a casual social atmosphere where food and drink are also offered. Concert-goers can sample culinary tidbits prepared by Arcanum Historical Society volunteers, as well as appealing drink choices, all available for a donation to the Society.
According to Rawlins, Sarah Goslee Reed lives in rural Mount Vernon amid numerous plants and animals, and her music reflects her love of nature and all of humankind.
“She sings about the earth, her garden, planting trees, and much, much more; her songs tell stories, celebrating real life woven through with bittersweet meditations about the remorseless passing of years,” Rawlins explained.
Reed, who has been performing for over 20 years, says that her music is greatly influenced by the folk music of the sixties and the songs of The Beatles.
DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series is sponsored by Julie and Tom Graber, Eileen and Steve Litchfield, and Rodney Oda. The Ohio Arts Council helps fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund.
