June 5 Coffeehouse features Newfoundalnd Troubadour

By Staff | May 29, 2015

The June 5 First Friday Coffeehouse will feature Newfoundland native Ian Foster. The event is held at Trinity Orchard House on Route 45 between Shepherdstown and Martinsburg. Doors open for social time and open mic sign-up at 7 p.m. All open mic participants should be there early to get a slot to perform at one of the area`s premier listening rooms. Up to eight performers can show off their talents during the hour preceding the feature act.

Foster comes from a place of stories and he knows how to tell them. He’s a road worn troubadour who has been described as having a keen poetic sense and a searcher’s infinite wisdom in his writing and yet can make you laugh between songs. He writes in a modern folk style and exudes a love of storytelling.

Often likened to Canadian songwriting icon Bruce Cockburn in both writing and guitar style, Ian’s music has been described as thoughtful, introspective, cinematic, hopeful, atmospheric, and cathartic by critics and fans alike. He has numerous awards, nominations and co-writes to his credit, including SOCAN Songwriter of the year nominations, lyric finalist for the International Songwriting Competition (Nashville), and a co-write with Canadian songwriting legend Ron Hynes.
