The Steeple Coffeehouse at Pilgrim Church is going local this weekend. On Saturday night they’ll feature Marlborough native violinist Jason Anick and his trio. Anick says he’s excited to do a show right next door to his hometown.

For the past several years, Anick and his fiddle have been touring with Nashville virtuoso guitarist John Jorgenson all over the US, as well as in China, UK, Germany, and The Netherlands. “To be able to bring all my experiences from touring all over the world back to my hometown area for a show is very exciting and special to me,” Anick said.

Anick’s new trio features Lee Dynes’ guitar and Derek Vanwormer’s acoustic bass along with Jason’s violin and mandolin. The group weaves together strands of Gypsy jazz, world music, even Beatles tunes, into a fun and exciting evening of improvisational alchemy.

Saturday’s show will celebrate the release of their new CD Sleepless. You can learn more about Anick and sample some of his music on his website (www.jasonanick.com).

As always, Steeple Coffeehouse sponsor Tomasso will offer a special 3-course menu for those going to the show at the low price of $25 per person ($20 if ordered in advance with your tickets).

This month also features the return of babysitting services at Pilgrim Church during the show. Experienced teenage sitters with adult supervision will watch your kids for a mere $10 per child ($5 for additional children). Proceeds benefit the Pilgrim Church Youth Group.

The Steeple Coffeehouse show starts on Saturday, December 11 at 7:30. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door (discounts for students and seniors available). Visit the Steeple Coffeehouse website for more info on the dinner and childcare options, and to purchase tickets (www.steeplecoffeehouse.org).
