Since 2012, Not Just Another Coffeehouse has offered a community venue for outstanding music: Celtic, Folk, Bluegrass, Jug Band, Classical Indian, Cabaret, Jazz, French Canadian, Irish, and more. Each month, on the third Saturday of the month the historic Unitarian Meetinghouse in Sharon, Massachusetts, has come alive with music. And in addition to the music, we serve delicious home-made desserts and free trade beverages.
You can pay at the door (there is always enough room) – $15 or whatever you can afford (no one is ever turned away). Children are free.
3rd Saturday of each month @ 7 p.m.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the church is handicapped accessible.
