We welcome to our stage Drew Gibson. Since releasing his debut album “Letterbox” in 2007, the self-taught finger-style guitarist has garnered attention from USA Today, The Washington Post, The Washington Area Music Association, and esteemed Americana magazine, No Depression, for his intensely personal songs and his stagecraft as a live performing story-teller. Drew has performed across the country at revered venues such as The Ark in Ann Arbor, Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, and The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia. Gibson recently released his third effort entitled “1532.” The album was considered one of the top releases in 2015 by No Depression. Check him out at https://www.drew-gibson.com/.
Opening for Drew will be the Star City Ukulele Circle. These folks are serious about their music and serious about having fun! Expect to hear some traditional favorites as well as some new songs that are bound to impress and entertain you! You may even find yourself wanting to get yourself a Ukulele and join their group, which they’ll be happy to talk to you about!
Now in our 31st year, 3rd Street Coffeehouse is a non-profit listening room run by volunteers and never has a cover charge. We are alcohol free and smoke free and feature fresh bakery from Evie’s Wildflour Restaurant and Bakery in Roanoke with a great selection of regular and flavored coffees, teas and cold drinks. We are located in the basement of the historic Trinity United Methodist Church and our door faces Mountain Avenue. We pass the hat for our performers and 100% of the money collected goes to the performers. Doors open at 7:00 PM.
