Friday, April 8 at 7:30 PM

Jon-and-Heather 2016 Second Friday favorites Heather Quay and Jon Svetkey — now using the folk friendly name “The Yellow Room” — have been singing and strumming together for almost twenty years. Their original songs combine elements of classic pop, folk and country music while showcasing their love of two-part harmony and fun.

Heather has been on the stage for many years. As one half of Quay & O’Conor, she performed at colleges and clubs throughout the Northeast, including Columbia University, CBGBs and Club Passim, and released an album of original music. Jon, and his band, The Loomers, have performed at venues such as The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, The Hatch Shell in Boston, Club Passim, Caffe Lena, and Fenway Park. He co-headlined writers-in-the-round nights with folks like Kristian Bush of Sugarland, Dar Williams, and Ellis Paul. Jon has released 10 albums of his music and his songs have appeared on CBS, Cinemax, The CW, MTV, NBC, and PBS.

Heather and Jon are thrilled to be returning to the Second Friday and they will have their brand new CD, “Live At The Second Friday Coffeehouse” — recorded at last year’s concert — available at the show. And, as a special added bonus, Jeff Farias will join them on the aluminum double bass for this performance! Don’t miss it!
