Westporters songwriter Suzanne Sheridan and poet Ralph Adams will team up Friday for a coffeehouse style evening of music and poetry at the Westport Historical Society.

Also appearing will be keyboardist Bob Cooper of Westport and Chris Brown on bass.

"Coffee House at the Wheeler's" will be held at the Westport Historical Society's Wheeler House, 25 Avery Place from 6 to 8 p.m. A second coffeehouse featuring Sheridan is planned Friday, Nov. 22.

Though contemporary music programs are something of a departure for the historical society, Executive Director Sue Gold said they serve the mission of "enriching the community and creating an opportunity for Westporters to gather together."

A $10 donation will be requested at the door, and reservations are required. Proceeds benefit the Westport Historical Society.
