WHAT’S COMING NEXT?

May 12th at 7:30pm: Tricia Alexander and Amelia Stamsta

Due to unexpected flooding, Edgar’s Place Coffeehouse has been relocated to Trinity Lutheran Church at 2901 Western Ave in Park Forest during the month of April and May.

Admission is $15 cash only donation.

 Come out to celebrate with two outstanding women musicians for our last show of this season. Edgar’s Place favorite Tricia Alexander has performed a number of times over the years for us, as well as conducting services at our UUCC church and other churches, and is also involved in the healing arts. Amelia Stamsta is a powerful new voice in the folk music world. We first heard her at Edgar’s a couple years back as a guest of the legendary Claudia Schmidt when she sang a song acapella and pretty much blew everyone in the audience away! It’s an honor to have these two women on the Edgar’s stage, and just in time for Mother’s Day! Hope to see many of you there.
