“Artists who present other artists become better artists …”
Become a better artist … and start your own artist run, community supported WoodSongs Hometown Music Coffeehouse. It’s a simple concert series you can do in your living room, front porch, school … even a library. Any place where people can gather makes a good location. Find our more here and download our “How To” manual, it’s free. There are TWO WoodSongs Coffeehouse opportunities:
This is a live performance opportunity that you create in your community. It is volunteer run, community venues presented in homes, schools, theaters and cafes. The purpose is to create an inter-national network of small, fun and artistic stages for artists and their audiences. This project is a free public outreach of the WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour … any hometown, any country. PLEASE NOTE: as part of our web overhaul the WoodSongs Coffeehouse site is being redesigned and some information, like current list of coffeehouse partners, may not be accurate.

WoodSongs Coffeehouse for Schools and Colleges
This project works in conjunction with our WoodSongs In The Classroom project and is great for Middle, High and College level students. They are encouraged to start a “WoodSongs Coffeehouse” and actual performance series in their school. It can be during a dedicated, approved class period, a lunchtime stage or as an after school activity. Students will be able to write songs, develop a sense of community, learn instruments and experience the art of performing before an audience. WoodSongs will provide a “how to” manual to help teachers and students make this a success when a school signs up to be part of the project. This is all FREE to schools click here.
