Coffee House Concerts are a Sweet Deal
By Dawn Kittrell
This Friday, you could be listening to Irish music with your friends while having coffee and cake at a candlelit table, if you come to the 333 Coffeehouse.
The 333 Coffeehouse is an affordable, fun and down-to-earth musical dessert where regular folks can have a cultural evening inexpensively.
Every third Friday, the 333 Coffeehouse organizer and folk singer Janie Meneely turns the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis into an intimate concert setting, serving music, coffee and desserts.
Keltish, a high-energy Celtic band from Reston, Virginia, is this weeks St. Patricks week treat. Fiddler Chelle Fulk leads a group of musicians with tastes ranging from jazz to country. As Keltish, we twist traditional Irish tunes into our own flavor, said Fulk.
Chelle Fulk and Lynn Cunningham, two members of Keltish, have played at 333 Coffeehouse before with the band Pirates Royale.
Opening for Keltish is BanjerDan, a solo bluegrass player from the Washington D.C. area.
Coffeehouse a treat, but the intermission promises another cultural bon-bon: poetry readings. Several members of the audience come prepared with poetry, often their own.
When you come to the 333 Coffeehouse, the deal is as sweet as everything else.
Admission is $10, and coffee and desserts are $1 each.
