24 N Park St, Dahlonega, GA, US
Bio: Located in the second oldest commercial structure on the public square of historic Dahlonega, GA, The Crimson Moon Café is unique because it offers a rare opportunity to be up close and personal with the artists who perform on it's tiny eight by ten foot stage. The c.1858 Concert Hall Dining Room allows 120 individuals to be within just 45 feet of the stage - a distance usually fought over/unattainable at larger venues. Patrons leave with both the memorable experience of enjoying a true listening room' and the pleasure of dining in one of the Southeast’s most unique restaurants. The eclectic menu offers a 'new south' focus; a coffee house featuring organic/shade grown and fairly traded coffee; and a wide selection of beer and wine. In only 10 years of operation the tiny stage has already offered top tier acts such as The Indigo Girls, Rory Block, Shawn Mullins, The Greencards, John Cowan, Richard Shindell, Claire Lynch, John McCutcheon, Blueground Undergrass, Michelle Malone, Robin & Linda Williams, Col Bruce Hampton, Girlyman, and The Peasall Sisters – truly making 'The Moon' the Southeast's most intimate of it's 'premier' music venues! With nightly jams, house bands and open mics the rest of the week, you'll find live, mostly acoustic music from Wednesday to Monday, 100+ year tradition of 'picking and grinning' most very Sunday afternoon. The Crimson Moon Cafe is truly the Southeast's most intimate music venue – where the creative spirit (along with two music loving but friendly ghosts) lives and shines!
