Medium House Roasts and Dark Indie Sounds
Ember + Forge to feature local musicians
Saturday, May 26
Ember + Forge, Erie's newest locally owned coffee shop is primed to host the next installation of its monthly Coffee Shop Series which features local musicians. On Saturday, May 26, songwriter Brent Knight will perform.
Knight also fronts Shadow Tribe, an experimental indie rock band from Cambridge Springs who blends their unique sound with elements of folk and psychedelic rock. These can be seen on their album Darkness of Death, released in November of last year. Knight wrote and produced Shadow Tribe's album.
"The Coffee Shop series is a monthly event organized by Ember + Forge and Jess Royer to feature singer/songwriters," said Ember + Forge's owner Hannah Kirby. Musician and event organizer Jess Royer continued Kirby's sentiment, explaining that "the intention is to provide singer songwriters with an environment to express to an attentive audience, away from the bar scene." That Saturday will also feature dessert specials featuring different pastry chefs and bakers from around the area. Pen and ink works by talented local artist Dana Manon will also be on display. — Hannah McDonald
