COFFEE HOUSE EVENT

                                                  - Al Poindexter scheduled to host free open mic night-

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park will host a Coffee House hosted by Al Poindexter in the park auditorium on Saturday, October 4, 2014.

If you want to hear songs about Florida legends, colorful characters and backwater places then listen to Al Poindexter perform his own songs, old timey songs and blues tunes backed up on his National steel bottleneck guitar or fast picking claw hammer banjo.  Al has been a performer and avid collector of Florida folk lore and songs for over 20 years and writes fresh, new tunes about life in old Florida.

Al performs on the Ann Thomas Gazebo Stage at the Florida Folk Festival.  First place winner of the blues competition at the 2011 St Johns River Blues Festival.  Plays every Thursday night for over 4 years in Jacksonville at Three Layers Café. Al Poindexter and River Rise perform at many music events around North Florida

The Stephen Foster Coffee House event invites visitors onstage for 10 minutes to sing, play a musical instrument, read some original poetry or tell a story. Artists are requested to arrive at least 10 minutes early for sign up and perform material suitable for all ages. Coffee house is an extremely popular event held in the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park and with no admission fee; seating tends to fill up quickly.

The Coffee House event includes the sale of potluck goodies and sweets provided by volunteers to help to keep the event going. Anything on the dessert table sells for $1.00. Volunteers are always welcome and needed to help with the dessert table. For more info call (386) 397-2733.
