The North Elk Coffee House is held on the third Saturday of September through November and January through May in our Parish Center.
Guest performers present live music in a variety of styles, including: Celtic, Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, and traditional American folk music. All members of the community are welcome to attend.
The North Elk Coffee House seats up to 110 people at small, candlelit tables, in the friendly and intimate style of the coffee houses of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Our audience averages between 50 and 80 people. There are desserts, snacks, and beverages available for a donation. The coffee house is smoke-free and alcohol-free. All proceeds, beyond the cost of running the coffee house, are donated to The Meeting Ground, an organization that supports homeless individuals and families in Cecil County, Maryland.
Performers are paid $300 for two 45-minute sets of music. Inquiries can be sent to Rick Waterhouse: firstname.lastname@example.org
