The Nelson Coffee House includes a variety of performers of song, spoken word, and sometimes other stuff. This month has a special Father’s Day theme, with the evening’s featured performers being Andy Davis and his son Arthur.

Andy Davis has been a dance musician and caller since moving to New England in the late 1970s. He has been a regular staff person and program director for many Country Dance and Song Society summer family programs over the years. He plays accordion, piano and banjo in addition to singing a repertoire of traditional songs. For the past twenty years he has performed each December with Nowell Sing We Clear. He teaches K-6 music in the Vermont public schools. All of his students know how to ‘square up a set’ and how to ‘dosido the one below’. He lives in Brattleboro with his wife Robin, daughter Emma and son Arthur.

Arthur Davis is a freshman at Brattleboro Union High School. He plays piano, recorder and trumpet in a variety of musical styles. Arthur is adept at harmony singing and is working his way into the dance music scene as a back up pianist. In addition to music, Arthur enjoys baseball, reading and crossword puzzles.

Other performers will include Gordon and Spencer Peery – more to be announced soon!
