You are @ What's Going OnCoffee House

"CoffeeHouse" evenings are events, always a live performance, that are open to the public.  Tickets are inexpensive and a good time is to be had by all.  Please come along, bring your friends, make some new ones, and in doing so, you will be supporting a good cause too  -- all proceeds goes to helping "Children in Need" in the Greater Charleston area.  We have supported after school enrichment programs for inner city children for 12 years -- over $60,000!!!

The 2014-15 Gage Hall Coffeehouse Season continues on Saturday, May 16th at 7:30 pm with an evening of great music with the Asheville NC Folk Duo, Dana and Susan Robinson.  From the Green Mountains of Vermont, Americana, roots, folk duo Dana and Susan Robinson are celebrating their twentieth year of national and international touring. With guitar, fiddle, banjo, and mandolin, their sound is a melting pot of Appalachian, British, and rural American influences, full of exciting fiddle tunes, earthy grooves, elegant melodies, and rich harmony singing.

The genius of a Dana and Susan Robinson performance lies in their ability to capture the imagination of their audience. They can make the audience howl with laughter or hush with reflection as they take them on a journey across America and convey the mystery and wonder of the places they visit. Their unique blend of original songwriting and traditional Appalachian music bring to their performances a deep understanding of America’s musical heritage.

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Dana relocated to New England where he discovered both a thriving songwriters scene and the deep well of traditional mountain music. In the early 1980s, Dana settled in northern Vermont and built a house “off the grid” (no electricity and phone) on 30 acres near the Canadian border. There he founded a popular bakery, café and music venue. Dana launched into full-time touring after the release of his 1994 debut CD, Elemental Lullabye, and after receiving a request to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City for Putumayo’s Shelter benefit project.

"Exquisite music - physical and spiritual, contemporary and ancient, up to its eyeballs in mud and transcendence. Musicians like Dana Robinson don't grow on trees!"  

— Music Upstream

 “Rural America explored with elegant simplicity. Their music and cleanly poetic songwriting bring to mind the great folksingers of our times.” Don’t miss it!!!!

What We Do With the Money!   

The Social Justice Committee at the Unitarian Church in Charleston has stepped in, raising money to help level the academic playing field. This year, they are sponsoring weekly enrichment programs at Charleston Progressive, James Simons, Mitchell and Elementary schools. Just this month they went to Cypress Gardens -- Look at the wonderment in their eyes!!
