Music Sampler

The Sweetwater Cafe is dedicated to bringing neighbors together to share an evening of food, friendship and great live music. Come join us on the southern end of beautiful Lake Lanier in Cumming, GA for the experience of hearing talented musicians in an intimate "house concert" setting. We feature local singer/songwriters as well as traveling acts from around the world.

How it Works?

A House Concert is just that - a concert in a private home. We occasionally invite artists to play for us in our house and invite the local community to join us as a way to have fun and meet new people. Each guest is asked to chip in $20-25 per person - all of which goes directly to the artist - and to bring their favorite beverage and a dish to share in a pot luck dinner that takes place before the show.

Ben Gage
Suggested donation: $20-25/person

Wandering our way from the Great Lakes area, Ben delivers a fun blend of folk and blues with dry humor and sarcasm mixed in. We met Ben at this year's SERFA conference (Southeast Regional Fold Alliance) where he was an official showcase artist.

Ben will be releasing his latest album "Two Singing Songs" that day, so this will actually be his "album release party". Pretty cool!

Here are some extracts from his performance at SERFA, plus a few other videos thrown in so you can get a feel for what his shows are like.

House of Hamill
Suggested donation: $20-25/person

House of Hamill delivers lively, upbeat modern celtic fusion. Whether they're ripping through a set of original jigs and reels, adding lush three-part harmonies into traditional folk ballads, or cracking up an audience with stories from the road, House of Hamill puts on a show that captivates audiences from the very first note.

Check out some samples of their music. Should be a fun show!
