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 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.

Nicholas Edward Williams
Suggested donation: $20/person

We first met Nicholas a few years back at SERFA's annual conference and vowed to get him down to play for us one day. Well, one day's finally here.

Nicholas is a master at old timey, fingerpicking style guitar. He has his own brand of satire and simple honest storytelling that translates into engaging live shows - harnessing rhythmic fingerpicking, soaring vocals, rolling harmonica, heart-thumping stomp box and charismatic whistling.

Here are some videos so you can get a feel for what he sounds like.

We request that everyone planning on attending be vaccinated.
