See Adam Barley Live on Saturday, June 18th!

Come see us on Saturday, June 18th to enjoy some tunes from Adam Barley. The show is free and begins at 8pm.

Adam Barley is a singer-songwriter out of Charleston, South Carolina. His songs are unique rock tunes with reflective, exploratory and distinctive lyrics, melodies and rhythmic ideas encouraging the listener to explore new territory and question the “norm.” In support of his band, Adam & Elsewhere, he is on a solo tour to promote the release of their upcoming debut EP.

Check out his website or listen to some of his music here.

We hope to see you there!

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!

The Partnership for Gender Equality

We wanted to announce our support of the Equal Origins Program In collaboration with Carrboro Coffee Roasters!
This program works to unlock the potential of coffee farming women, youth and their families, to promote equitable opportunities & catalyze a supply chain that works for everyone.
At a workshop in Nicaragua, February 27 & 28, titled “Strengthening the Links of the Coffee Value Chain through Gender Equity” , 30 participants from households, producer organizations and roasters were brought together to exchange their experiences and perspectives and work on a collaborative vision and roadmap for work at these three levels of the value chain to accelerate impact for families, communities and the supply chain as a whole.

The Equal Origins Initiative – will work to ensure that everyone, at every level of the supply chain, matters equally.
