Just what is a CoffeeHouse?
The term "coffeehouse" refers to the 1950's Beatnick Era, when small urban cafes became youth culture music venues for the likes of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Pete Seeger.
The George, Washington version of the coffeehouse, which began in 2004, has become a popular once-a-month concert venue. The CoffeeHouse concert series features a wonderful range of Americana, Roots, Folk, Cowboy and Bluegrass musicians from all over the Pacific Northwest.
The CoffeeHouse concerts happen monthly at the George Community Hall from October through April each year. Admission is just $5 per person. Kids 12 and under get in for free, but must be accompanied by an adult. Fresh-baked refreshments are served at half-time by the George, WA Georgettes at the GCH Kitchen. Bands are paid with a hat-pass: suggested donation for this is $8-$12 per person. Concert start-time is 7 p.m. (unless otherwise noted). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for best seating.
