“Simple Beauty”

Photographer: Michael Healey

 

Looking through the lens of my camera, I realized how beautiful our world really is.  Whether shooting a picture of the waves crashing on the beach in Maine, a broken-down barn in late October, or my daughter jumping on a trampoline, my camera reminds me to focus on the simple joys present in the here and now of everyday life.

 

Mill Rock Photography was started by Michael Healey in 2014 as a way to focus his creative energy on something he could share with the world.

 Open Mic in Ballston Spa!

The Third Wednesday of Every Month

Begining October 15th!

Open Mic returns this Wednesday with a new and exciting format! 

 

Each month we will have a "Featured Artist" which will play a full set at the end of the event. Future Featured Artists will be selected from the Open Mic participants and may be chosen to perform at Coffee Planet for it's weekend brunch gigs and First Fridays in Ballston Spa.  

 

This months feature artist is "Stories Told".

Stories Told is the acoustic singer/songwriter duo of Gary Moon and Alice Hausmann, and originated in the Saratoga Springs arts scene in upstate New York.

Alice answered her musical calling in the Saratoga music scene performing with a wide range of area musicians, and accompanying herself on guitar and ukelele.

Gary has performed at venues in the Lake George region covering the songs of popular artists of the singer-songwriter genre all the while sharpening his own songwriting skills and drawing on these influences to craft his own original compositional style.

While their vocal styles are unique as solo artists, their harmonies blend perfectly whether they are performing original songs, contemporary folk-pop hits, or classic folk standards.

 

Hump Day Open Mic's are the third Wednesday of every month!

Signup starts at 6:30. Music is from 7 to 9. 

So tell your friends, and stop in for some great coffee, some great music, and a great time.!!

Sunday Brunch in Ballston Spa
L.B. Walker

It's exceedingly rare these days to see an old-fashioned one man band in the style of say, Jessie "Lone Cat" Fuller, but Mr. L.B. Walker is the real thing. He straps on a guitar, throws a harp in the rack and sticks a tambourine beneath his foot, counts four and the blues begin. It's charming, anachronistic and totally cool, all at the same time.

When: Sunday
October 12th.  11am-1pm
Sunday Brunch in Ballston Spa 
"Duo"

Duo is Carla Metz (vocals) and Larry Acunto (guitar) performing a variety of music from standards to country classics to Beatles, and much more.  The fun they have while playing is known to be infectious!  This will be their second appearance at Coffee Planet; Duo is looking forward to playing great music while sharing some fabulous coffee and most likely, a lot of giggles too!

When:

Sunday October 19th  11am-1pm.

Also Performing!

Friday November 7th  6pm-9pm.
