Mike Powell – “The Polite Rebel” – in concert Sunday, November 5, 1 to 3 p.m.

We are proud to present the captivating storytelling talent of singer-songwriter Mike Powell in concert on Sunday, November 5th from 1 to 3 p.m.. Mike’s live shows are best described as real. He somehow manages to blend his folk songwriting style with a silky blue-eyed soul vocal styling that creates a sound as unique as he is. In this first-ever Central Square performance, you will hear Mike play music that is original, genuine, passionate and entertaining. The concert will be held in the church sanctuary, which has been praised by past performers for its balance of acoustical intimacy, mellowness and clarity. The audience is also invited to enjoy refreshments and meet Mike between sets. There is no cost to attend but a free-will offering is encouraged from those who can afford it. Don’t miss this opportunity to share great music with friendly company. Your heart will warm and your soul will smile!
