MORRISBURG – On September 21 the Tilted Steeple Coffee House will launch its fourth season with an all-local slate of artists. The evening will include a vocal performance by singer Lori-Anne Van Moorsel, a set by the three Claudes – a group that includes Claude “Plum” Plamondon and friends, Claude Clement and Claude Champagne –, and one by the Rev. Jon Martin, rector of St. James Anglican Church, where the coffee house is held.
The Tilted Steeple Coffee House, the brainchild of local singer-songwriter Isabelle Delage (The Inundation, Songs from my Little Couch), is a monthly event organized in aid of refugee sponsorship efforts in collaboration with St. James’ outreach program. Delage herself closes the evening each month, with friends or solo.
Each evening features four acts, with all performers donating their time and talent.
“I have lived here four years now, and in that time have gradually come to know many local musicians,” said Delage. “So that the balance at the Tilted Steeple is slowly shifting to a more locally-based roster, although we still have some out-of-town guests slated for this season. Musicians love to perform to our very attentive and appreciative audience!”
The Tilted Steeple Coffee House takes place at St. James Anglican Church, 20 High Street, Morrisburg on the third Friday of each month from September to April (except December).
Admission is $10 and refreshments are available by donation.
