Arizona-based singer songwriter Mark Bishop Evans performs on Saturday evening, April 20th, with doors opening at 6:45 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. performance. 

Originally a trumpet player, Mark’s desire to sing brought him to the guitar in his early teens. Listening and playing the folk and protest music of the late sixties inspired him to begin writing his own songs. His musical migration has taken him through folk rock, pop, country, gospel and back to folk where it all began. His music is an intriguing blend of folk, folk rock and ballads, lyrically rich in emotional content and melodically comfortable. It is commonly called “close to the bone.”

 Admission is $10 for the general public and $5 for students of any age. Tickets are available that evening on a first come, first serve basis. (cash or checks).

Enjoy the relaxing, warm atmosphere of friendly people, good music, coffee, tea, and home baked goodies. The Open Book Coffeehouse is located in the community room of the Canton Public Library, and is made possible by the Friends of the Library. 

Parking is to the left when facing the library from Washington Street. Enter by the "Special Events" door to the left of the columns, midway into the parking area.
