Coffeehouse Concert - Ben Cosgrove
Something comfortable, something cozy - come listen to relaxing music in our library’s own coffee house! Join the WFPL in welcoming a slate of performers for our Coffeehouse Concerts this winter. All concerts will be accompanied by hot coffee and fresh pastries from local business O’some Café. Registration required, held in the Watertown Savings Bank Room.
For One Book, One Watertown, the WFPL presents composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Cosgrove. Ben Cosgrove is a traveling composer-performer whose music explores themes of landscape, place, and environment. Ben has performed in every U.S. state except Delaware and Hawaii, collaborated with artists ranging from Palaver Strings to Ghost of Paul Revere, and held artist residencies and fellowships with institutions including the National Park Service, the National Forest Service, Harvard University, Middlebury College, the Schmidt Ocean Institute, and the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology. Ben’s fourth studio album, The Trouble With Wilderness, an evocation of various expressions of nature and wildness within the built environment, was released earlier this year. The album has been the subject of an episode of the NHPR show Outside/In, and was deemed one of the best new releases of spring 2021 by WBUR.
