Coffee House Sessions
Singer-Songwriter Aubree Riley Here May 4
The Tecumseh Commons will premier a new format on Sunday evening, May 4, with a Coffee House Session concert featuring the powerful voice of young singer-songwriter Aubree Riley of Athens. A native of nearby Corning, the 13-year old talent has been taking the sophisticated Athens music scene by storm for over a year with her performances at Donkey Coffee and other venues.
Don’t expect an evening of cover songs or teeny-bopper music. When Riley takes the stage, she will feature dozens of songs she has written , ranging from pop to country, many with a serious tone. Aubree’s music is directed at audiences of all ages. “She has a raw, unrefined songwriting that’s honest, bright and sometimes heartbreaking,” said Troy Gregorino, booking agent at Donkey Coffee and Espresso, in Athens. “When people see or hear about her, they expect her to be an image or a novelty act, but once she starts playing and singing, you realize you’re really watching something special.”
Aubree’s concert will begin at 6pm with doors opening at 5pm. Unlike past concerts, high-end coffee will be the featured beverage rather than alcohol. Food will be available for sale, as well. Tickets are $5 and available on-line by clicking here, or available at the door on a first-come, first serve basis. Pay Pal accepts all major credit cards, you need not have a Pay Pal account. Pick up your on-line tickets at the door the evening of the concert. Youth tickets will be available at the door for $3 each.
Proceeds from the concert support on-going operational expenses of the Tecumseh Theater building, including mortgage payments for the renovation of the first floor Tecumseh Commons space. Our concert series are crucial in keeping the mortgage paid and this space available for many events for the community and region.
The Tecumseh Commons is located in the first floor of the Tecumseh Theater at 116 West Main Street in Shawnee, Ohio. Shawnee is located in the Wayne National Forest at the intersection of State Routes 93 & 155 in southern Perry County. For more information call us at 740-394-2660.
