Somerville Songwriter Sessions at the Armory Cafe presents contemporary folk singer/songwriters in concert on the first Saturday of each month. The Armory Cafe features live music in an intimate setting, a menu featuring sandwiches, soups, desserts and coffees, and plenty of free parking.

Award-winning Boston singer/songwriter (and novelist) Terry Kitchen’s songs are portraits of ordinary people and emotions, captured with extraordinary compassion, honesty and humor. He has released ten CDs of original music since the 1990s, and his songs have won the Mid-Atlantic and USA Song Contests and been runner-up in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. His novel Next Big Thing, called “a great debut novel” by the San Francisco Book Review, is set in the 1980s Boston music scene, when Kitchen’s own group Loose Ties was engaged in a nightly battle for existence and glory.
