Expresso Yourself Coffeehouse


First Parish UU Medfield

Our next show:

Saturday, July 22nd at 7:00 PM

NOTE: It's the 4th Saturday this month!!

Open to all including high school students and adults.

The Expresso Yourself Coffeehouse is an opportunity for spoken word artists to share their poetry, stories, and songs. It is held the last Saturday of every month at 7pm at First Parish Unitarian Universalist in Medfield, MA. Each month has a different theme. This month's theme is "Coming Into Me" and our feature is Carolyn Waters.


Carolyn Door resizedCarolyn Waters is a performing singing/songwriter who fuses blues/roots/folk and other musical genres into a unique unforgettable blend of songs and sounds. She can belt out barrelhouse and juke joint blues, or fuse them with a pinch of Gospel and roots.  Carolyn has been featured in the Boston Blues Society’s Ladies of the Blues Events, sharing the stage with the late great Shirley “Regal Queen of the Blues” Lewis, Lydia Warren, Lisa Marie and Diane Blue to name a few.  She has performed at the Homegrown Coffeehouse, the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, Serendipity, Beatniks, and many other venues in New England, New York, Maryland and Virginia. 

"Carolyn Waters is a force of nature.  Some people are simply created to sing and bless those who listen, Carolyn is one of those people".  Rev. Robert Jones, Sr.  Acclaimed Blues/Roots Musician/Blues Historian

"Carolyn's music is hypnotic, in a deeply soulful groove. You've heard it said that pure music seems to "flow" through a great singer? Go hear Carolyn to experience the real thing” - Pete and Maura Kennedy, TheKennedys.  

"Carolyn's voice is amazing, captivating, compelling—any superlative will fit. I don't believe I have heard such a rich, velvety, and yes—bluesy—voice locally in years" - Karen Nugent, Boston Blues Society
