Rock City Café, 316 Main St., offers a weekend of folk music, traditional and 21st-century, Friday and Saturday nights, Dec. 4 and 5.

On Friday, Rock City Cafe will present Lauren Crosby, is a rising folkie/bluesy singer/songwriter from Georgetown Island. In a world where it seems every teenage girl is trying to become the next Taylor Swift or Adele, Crosby offers music that is real, raw and poetic. She plans on singing, writing, and traveling for the rest of her life.

Saturday, Dec. 5, Rock City Cafe presents the Ale House String Band featuring Brian Dunn on mandolin, April Reed-Cox on cello and Oren Robinson on guitar. The group was formed through a couple of happy accidents. Robinson regularly played at a Waldoboro tavern, where the owner introduced him to Dunn. Reed-Cox moved to the area and one evening was invited to play by Dunn; the resulting chemistry was evident to everyone who was present that evening and thus the Ale House String Band was formed. The musicians perform anywhere within a day’s ride and can be found happily picking, plucking, bowing, strumming and singing away in a plethora of venues.

The music will run from 7 to 9 p.m., with food available until closing.  With coffee, cocktails, food and live music, Rock City Cafe is where your Friday night begins. For more information on these and other events happening at the coffeebar/cafe, call 594-4123 or find it on Facebook.
