John Lemme, guitarist and singer from Newmarket, performed at Trinity United Church in Beeton on Friday, November 16th as part of the ongoing Songwriters Showcase series.

Lemme told The Times that his style is “music for Baby Boomers”, but anyone who even knows a Baby Boomer will know the music.

Having played professionally in his twenties, Lemme says he now looks forward to performing with his three daughters – all professional musicians – and performing solo at weddings, parties and fundraisers.

“I’ve been playing since I was a kid,” Lemme said. “Twelve years ago, I started playing again, after taking a break.”

Songwriters Showcase is a live concert series that celebrates, and is devoted to, the art and craft of song-writing.

Founder and host George Scott welcomes premier singer-songwriters from across Ontario and beyond, at monthly concerts held in Beeton.

“Whether it’s stories of the road or tales of lost love, you’ll be entranced by the pure honesty and passion portrayed through these original songs,” said Scott of the music heard at any Songwriters event.

The acoustic concert series is held at Trinity United Church, 37 Centre Street N. in Beeton, on the third Friday each month from September through May – with no show in December.

Admission for the one-hour event is $10 at door, with each concert followed by refreshments and a song circle.
