Appalachian Coffee House in Princeton debuts live music series

PRINCETON, WV (WOAY) – Appalachian Coffee House will kick off their First Friday Music series with Hinton Native Nathaniel Altare March 6th, 2020 from 6-8 p.m Downtown Princeton, which features a variety of activities and specials at businesses along Mercer Street.

Nathaniel Altare will be the featured artist for March. Altare grew up on a Mountain outside of Hinton WV. He has spent the past decade writing songs on his porch and playing music locally. His performances blend simple acoustic guitar and lyrics inspired by love, loss and all the elements of life and death in the southern Appalachian Mountains. You can find him at local events and venues such as Chestnut Revival in Hinton WV, Earth Day Celebrations and Culture-fest World Music & Arts Festival at the Appalachian South Folk-life Center in Pipestem. Appalachian Coffee House is honored to have him kick off the series.

Live Music will be the First Friday of every month, and Appalachian Coffee House has a dynamic lineup of acts with a variety of music genres, including local artists such as Matt Deal, Je’Dah Palmer, Chad Cox, Jean Davis, Breanna Camp, Ashley Surface and more. The Coffeehouse is located at 858 Mercer Street. There is no cover charge, and it is a free event. However, coffee and baked goods will be available for purchase until 8 p.m.

Appalachian Coffee House suggests guests enjoy the night on the town in the Mercer Street Grassroots District before and after the show. On their Facebook page organizers say, “Enjoy a cup of coffee at Appalachian, dinner at Sophisticated Hound Brewing Company and ice cream at Blue Ridge Bee Company. Shop at The Riff-Raff Art Boutique & The Hatter’s Bookshop, check out the stunning art at Holler: Contemporary Appalachian Art Gallery and get creative at Artistic Adventures & Hammer & Stain Princeton. Explore the blossoming neighborhood, then enjoy this stellar show.”
