Coffeehouse to feature singer/songwriter

Music on the Delaware’s Coffeehouse at the Theatre will present singer/songwriter John O’Connor at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 27, on the second floor of the Walton Theatre. 

O’Connor will perform original songs and ballads, many of which have been performed by other artists such as Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, Norman Blake, The Fureys and Joe Glazer. Critics have compared O’Connor’s songs to those of Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs. O’Connor has been performing and recording his songs for three decades. The CD “Songs for Our Times” came out in 1984 and was named one of the best albums of the year by the Washington Post. Two other recordings followed. 

O’Connor also writes poetry, much of which has been published in well-known literary magazines. 

Coffeehouse performances are free, with coffee, tea and desserts available. Donations are accepted.
