The Annapolis area is lucky to have the talents of Glyn Collinson and Rowena Gee afoot this month. Together they comprise the duo Waterfront, specializing in lively contemporary takes on traditional British fare, liberally sprinkled with intriguing originals. They will be performing at the 333 Coffeehouse on Friday, June 17, beginning at 8 p.m.

“Sometimes rocking, always with our roots showing,” says band principal Glyn Collinson, whose bouzouki adds a compelling undercurrent to the band’s instrumentals. Those roots delve deep into British soil. Collinson himself comes from Wales. He is here in the states on a two-year stint at the Goddard Space Flight Center where he spends his days designing space plasma instrumentation that will someday be hurled into the deepest reaches of our solar system. His musical partner, Rowena Gee, will be joining him for a brief musical tour this month that will include sets at the Washington Folk Festival in Glen Echo, and the new Deal Café, in Greenbelt as well as the 333 Coffeehouse. Gee’s delicate mastery of the guitar and her silvery soaring vocals keep Glyn’s musical exuberance tethered to the stage. Even so, when they sing together expect to hear something out of this world.

The 333 Coffeehouse provides quality acoustic music in a non-alcohol, smoke-free setting on the third Friday of every month. Dessert and coffee are available. It is located at the Annapolis Unitarian Universalist Church, 333 DuBois Road, off  North Bestgate Avenue. Music begins promptly at 8 p.m.; doors open at 7:30. Admission is $10; seniors and students $8. For more information or directions, visit the website at fsgw.org/333/ or call host Janie Meneely at 443-786-0463.
