One the most memorable performances was several years ago, by a Chinese husband and wife who worked locally.
“They sat down and they played traditional Chinese instruments, and they just blew the house away,” Finfrock said.
“The quality always surprised everybody,” he said. “When people would come to the Music Cafe, they’d say, ‘We didn’t realize this was here, and we didn’t know how good it was.’”
The next Music Cafe, which is free, will be at 7 p.m. today, April 25, at MUH Downtown, 221 High St., and will feature four performers: Bruce Rich, with piano and vocal, originals; Dan Erdman, inspirational originals; Kevin Loving, pop folk country; and Rick Tallarigo, folk/folk-rock/Avante-garde.
Each will perform a 25-minute set.
