Music-making on a very high level, with infectious melodies, rhythms, and harmonies – that's the Hope Valley Volunteers to a T. This talented, irreverent fivesome are making their way to the Open Book Coffeehouse to stir us out of our midwinter lethargy. Bluegrass, one of America's oldest and most distinctive music forms, underpins country and old-time tunes with a gently driving pulse unique to the genre. Mike Boulay and his fiercely talented colleagues interweave their multi-instrumental textures with spirited vocals that'll make the room thrum and resonate! This much fun ought to be illegal—but it’s not—yet.

Enjoy the relaxing, warm atmosphere of friendly people, good music, coffee, tea, and home baked goodies.  The Open Book Coffeehouse is located in the community room of the Canton Public Library at 786 Washington Street, Canton, and is made possible by the Friends of the Library. Parking is to the left when facing the library from Washington Street. Enter by the "Special Events" door to the left of the columns, midway into the parking area.
