Gene Brigham Returns on August 9th

The community is invited to attend the next Ascension Coffee House on August 9th, which takes place from 7:00-9:00 PM in the parish hall at The Episcopal Church of the Ascension, Cartersville. This local listening room for original song gives area songwriters an opportunity to share their creative work with an appreciative audience.

Gene Brigham is a singer/songwriter from Rome, Georgia. He has been performing in the Coosa Valley area and beyond since 1986. Brigham toured the southern US with Deeper, a band he co-founded, from 1993 to 1995. He released a solo disc of original material, Outside Looking In, in 2002. This varied compilation includes the song, Coosa, for which he has received local notoriety. Brigham was a founding member of the Rome Area Songwriter's Association and performs with his current band, Etowah Jacks, around the northwest Georgia area. He teaches guitar at SMC Music in Rome.

McKee will continue to serve as host of Ascension Coffee House. Rick McKee is a singer/songwriter, composer, music educator, and multi-instrumentalist from Cartersville. He has released two albums on the Cosmic Possum label.
