3rd Street welcomes back the Southwest Virginia Songwriters Association (SVSA) for their annual Songwriter Showcase! Featuring both veteran and emerging songwriters from across Southwest Virginia, you’ll hear eight different artists performing their original works, including award winning performers Mike Franke, Larry Helms, Mollye Otis, Mike DeGiorgi, Greg Trafidlo, David Simpkins, Josh Jones and Bob Schmucker. We will have two sets with 4 performers each and no opening act. There will be an intermission between sets for house announcements and to give the audience and opportunity to stretch and purchase bakery, snacks and beverages. This is always fun when SVSA puts on a show! Check out the SVSA at www.svsasongs.com or https://www.facebook.com/svsasongs/!
Now in our 33rd 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.
