The Art & Soul Concert Series is a ministry of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Meriden at 328 Paddock Ave., Meriden, CT.  We started this concert series for two reasons. The first is to raise some money for the work of this congregation and the second is to provide a performing venue for local and independent artists.  We ask for donations for performances, half of which support the church and half go to the artist.

2024-2025 Season


September 28 Graeme Pearson.

One of Edinburgh’s most popular pub performers offers favorites and takes us on a singing tour of the Royal Mile.




October 5, 2024 –  Riley Johnson

Riley’s laid-back vibe and sound, along with his evocative and thoughtful lyrics, take you away, and down a slipstream of outlaws and ramblers, beach bums and good timers, hard luck and hard truths.  Sometimes introspective and sometimes a teller of tall tales, Johnson always brings a touch of magic. 

November 2 – Morgan Giosa 

 A self-described “old soul”, Morgan feels his music is most rooted in inspiration from the electric psychedelic blues of the 1960s and the great electric bluesmen B.B. King and Albert King.


January 4 – Pete Miserendino

Finger-style, guitarist Pete Miserendino plays classic popular songs from a wide range of eras. With his unique style of fiery finger picking, flying all over the fretboard with the grace of an Olympic gymnast, Miserendino’s performance is unparalleled.

February 1 – Crooked Mowth

Crooked Mowth is an a cappella quartet from the Boston area, conceived by harmony-hungry friends during the COVID-19 pandemic. They deliver a rich vocal blend and unique arrangements to songs old and new and across genres.

March 1 Kenn Morr Band

Kenn Morr’s charisma enthralls audiences and his rich baritone is complimented by lush vocal harmonies and sparkling instrumentation.

April 5The Bluesgrass Guitar Duo

Jon Swift and Mark White play some blues, some bluegrass, and some ol’ time classics. Their rich voices blend in perfect harmony. 

May 3Reggie Harris

A songwriter of great depth and passion, Reggie Harris writes from a personal sense of mission that merges a world wise point of view with a singularly hopeful stance that life, though often challenging, is filled with possibility and hope.
