Thank you so much for another great season!

Thank you for supporting live music at our monthly concerts and Open Mic.

Sadly, Simple Gifts will be going quiet for a while. For a multitude of reasons the current team is stepping back. A new team is needed to continue this wonderful legacy; a historic legacy that has spanned over 30 years of supporting and presenting live music in the Nashua community at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashua and more. Many wonderful memorable moments were created for this community, bringing together lovers and supporters of live music.

It's time for a new and fresh team to step up to continue this legacy - can you help? Message to Simple Gifts

All who have participated brought a love and commitment to the Coffee House. There is no limit to what a dedicated group of people can do when there is passion for a common cause. We have been honored to be a part of this unique legacy.

And so, thanks for the memories!

Thanks to all the wonderful artists who played for us this season, and past.

Thank you to all who came and listened, your support of live music and your respect for the "listening room" experience.

Last but not least, thank you to the Simple Gifts team and all the volunteers who helped make it happen. Setting up, breaking down, supplying baked goods; running sound, creating lighting, greeting the attendees; designing fliers, contracting the artists, managing a Web presence, promoting each concert, spreading the word.....

In the words of one of our favorite folk artists: "Oh hell, God bless everyone!" --Vance Gilbert

Support live music, keep the gift alive!
