Autumnal brilliance and Samhain’s intensity bring this season in with beautiful colors and introspective thoughts.
Halloween is Klekolo World Coffee’s favorite holiday! I mean we serve Witches Brews and warlocks all year long keeping the spirit alive. Klekolo is often described as Goddess or Witch centric and well we are. Concocting drinks has always been a potions class.
“When Witches go riding and black cats are seen, The Moon laughs and whispers tis near Halloween.”
Klekolo has several events left this month including :
“Children accompanied by their parents are invited to “trick or treat” All participating businesses and offices will have a poster displayed in their window”
Come in costumes and bring your own candy bag to fill!
We Love Halloween! Do stop in and check out our decor and try our new fall menu! This menu includes some wild stuff, apples, pumpkins, dragon’s fire, pirate treasure, spiders, headless horsemen and more. Our naturally flavored Organic, Fairtrade pumpkin spice coffee is on tap too!

A bit of Halloween lore….
Samhain is the Irish word often used for this season.
The name of the feast from which Halloween originated.
Samhain is pronounced SOW-in, with the first syllable rhyming with “cow” (or, if you prefer, with “sow” as in a female pig).
Samhain means Summers end.
According to Celtic lore, Samhain is a time when the boundaries between the world of the living and the world of the dead become thinner, allowing spirits and other supernatural entities to pass between the worlds to socialize with humans. It is the time of the year when ancestors and other departed souls are especially honored.
“Every day is Halloween isn’t it ? For some of us!” Tim Burton
Low Ceilings has 8 Cd’s out since Jan. 2015. The Newest a Solo release was May 2018.
I believe Low Ceilings is working on another CD already!
“Low Ceilings is an indie-folk project currently based in Windsor, CT. While the group has taken many forms over the years, its core has always been Ben Mueller, who writes the songs; produces, records, and mixes the albums; and handles guitar and vocals live.
Low Ceilings’ recordings tactfully straddle the line between lush production value and intimate, basementy lo-fi in a way that only a college career in the Boston DIY scene could make possible.
While attending Emerson College, Mueller, a Connecticut native, started the group with some friends and released an EP and two full-lengths as a full band.
Boston, a veritable cornucopia of music venues formal and informal, gave them plenty of room to play.
They belted their folky rock with a progressive tilt everywhere they could: basements, bars, living rooms, and venues like Club Passim, Club Bohemia, and The Middle East.
Since then, the band has also performed across New England, notably in an empty swimming pool in Nashua, NH; The Met in Pawtucket, RI; and Cafe Nine in New Haven,
CT. Digital Wheat Paste’s TJ Foster called their self-titled LP
“tremendously impressive record…songs that somehow sound intimately lo-fi and carefully polished all at the same time.”
After finishing school and moving back to Windsor,
Low Ceilings became a Mueller solo project.
The 5-song EP Least Favored Painting, out May 1st 2018, is the first release since the change. And change is good:
CT Scramble wrote of the EP that
“throughout its almost beachside strummings, there is a weary urban beat mysticism that permeates its mood, weighing down what could be easily sunny pop songs with something more literary, wistful, and vibey.”
Mueller is currently performing solo
and working up to the next Low Ceilings full-length.”
“Alex Forest is a Country Singer/Songwriter with southern roots stationed out of New England. His baritone melodies infused with nostalgic hometown lyrics provide a unique experience that listeners of all genres can appreciate. Influenced by 20th and 21st century artists, you can find elements of Sinatra to Cash to Sheeran within Alex’s music, making him what most likely could be called a Country Crooner with a Bleeding Heart
Alex traverses through the North East creating stories that are evident within his song writing. Life lessons, lost loves, and other experiences are constantly shaping his sound. His latest project, his debut EP: L.O.V.E., is where he puts words to song about breakups, hometowns, and crappy cars. In September 2018, Alex was invited to be a Vineyard Vines Club Artist at Fenway Park in Boston, MA. This past winter and spring Alex was nominated as a Best Country Artist, Singer-Songwriter, and Overall Artist for CTNOW and Best of Hartford Magazine 2019.” From Alex’s Website
Alex is a new Musician for Klekolo we are happy to check his work out.
