Thatcher Harrison was born to play guitar. He began playing before the age of two, started making weekly public performances at the age of five, and had his first open-mic feature performance shortly before turning six. That was about his age the first time he first performed on our stage with his Dad, Stan, while exhibiting an early love for performance. He's been a very busy boy since then and we're looking forward to seeing what he's got in store for us.
Drawn to the music of the 1960s and 1970s, Thatcher delights audiences with songs by such artists as Simon and Garfunkel, the Beatles, Cat Stevens, Donovan, and James Taylor. A regular performer on the open-mic circuit, Thatcher has had feature performances at the Café Arpeggio (New Bedford), the Coffee Deport (Warren), the Planet Café (Westport), and the Custom House Coffee (Portsmouth). In each of the past four years, Thatcher had entertained audiences at Rhode Island's "Singing Out Against Hunger" benefit and the Tiverton Arts and Artisan festival. This past summer, he had the pleasure of playing at the Marshfield Fair, at a one-day music festival in Alpena, Michigan, and before a capacity crowd at Mahogany Shoals on Block Island. And, today, we hear he’s excited at the prospect of playing and singing on stage at Rick’s Music World as our September feature. Help us welcome him back!
