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.

The Rough and Tumble

We're bringing back one of our favorites - the Rough and Tumble. The last time this Americana duo parked their camper in the neighborhood was back in February, 2019 when they put on an enjoyable show for us. We're looking forward to an amazing return engagement!
