USA Premiere of “Gender in Coffee – A Documentary” and Discussion

Join us on July 25th at Carrboro Coffee Roasters for an informative, fun, and ultimately inspiring screening of Gender in Coffee – A Documentary to learn how gender inequalities impact farming families and communities and to participate in a lively discussion to get to the heart of the issues and solutions.

Coffee farming families around the world face enormous daily challenges that put them, and your delicious cup of coffee, at risk. The Partnership for Gender Equity works to ensure farming is viable for all members of the family – women, men, and youth; on whom the entire industry depends.

Seating is limited so be sure to reserve your seat here. All funds raised will go to support the Equal Origins initiative of The Partnership for Gender Equity.

Ryan Bonner and the Adam Anderson Project will be here on Saturday, June 9th!

Come see us on Saturday, June 9th, and listen to Ryan Bonner and the Adam Anderson Project! The show is free and begins at 8pm.

Ryan Bonner brings a vocal quality at home over bluesy, mellow southern tunes and soaring, driven anthems that tell stories standing at the intersection of faith, family and desire; he looks at them through a slightly twisted prism to bring out the subtler colors of meaning in each.

His lyrics are simultaneously hopeful and astringent; a fellow artist recently defined his writing style as having an “acid wit.” Calling on a broad base of influences, Ryan produces music that evokes the sound of the singer-songwriter renaissance, telling the stories of the millennial search for real connection in an oft-isolated world.

Listen to some of his music here.

We hope to see you there!

Come see Hugh Willard this Friday, June 8th!

Join us this Friday, June 8th, and enjoy some tunes from Hugh Willard! The show is free and begins at 8pm.

Hugh Willard has been singing and performing in a multitude of settings for years from churches to prisons, from barns to bars, from baseball stadiums to backyard bonfires. He sings and plays guitar in the rock band, Thursday’s Flight, but also finds his home in the classic singer-songwriter, contemporary folk tradition. Willard has been described as a “cross between Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan.” You won’t want to miss this!

We hope to see you there!
