Long-time Atlanta folk music devotees may recall that before AAFFM began Fiddler’s Green in 1986, we presented occasional concerts at First Existentialist Congregation of Atlanta in Candler Park. So moving our monthly coffeehouse concert series to this excellent venue feels like coming home.
We think you’ll richly enjoy your coffeehouse experience at “First E.” The space may remind you pleasantly of the old days at Garden Hills Community Center. It offers attractive rustic ambience, fine acoustics, good climate control, handicap-access, and space enough to accommodate large turnouts. Also like Garden Hills, you’re welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverages to this venue.
First E. is easy to find. It’s on Candler Park Drive off McLendon Avenue, several blocks east of Little Five Points and right around the corner from our erstwhile venue, New Church UMC. There’s plenty of parking on the street alongside the park. Please do not venture up the driveway beside the building; that’s private property.
We need more volunteers here than has been required in the recent past. We especially need folks to help set up and take down tables and chairs. Volunteers enjoy the shows for free if they wish. If you’re interested, please contact Chris Moser at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-482-1209.
We very much appreciate the hospitality extended us since last fall at our previous venue, New Church (formerly Epworth). Our friends there have been a delight to work with, and we’ll miss them. But both we and the congregants at First E. are tremendously excited about the relocation of our coffeehouse there. We look forward to a partnership that we believe will help Fiddler’s Green thrive for a long time to come.
Don’t miss this great performance in our wonderful new space!
