Facebook Live and Kim Moberg Music Youtube

Join me and my guest, award winning singer/songwriter friend Rod Abernethy where we'll share songs and stories!

Rod Abernethy is a unique blend of an authentic southern folk troubadour, master acoustic guitarist and award winning composer for film, TV and video games.

Rod is the Overall Grand Prize Winner of the 2021 International Acoustic Music Awards and the 2019 Winner of American Songwriter's Bob Dylan Song Contest.

His new album "Normal Isn't Normal Anymore" was released last February and produced by Grammy nominated producer Neilson Hubbard (Mary Gauthier, Kim Richey, Glen Phillips) and includes both songs and instrumentals that revolve around family, friends and places across the Deep South.

Rod's guitar instrumentals evoke styles of his favorite guitarists Leo Kottke, John Fahey, Michael Hedges and Tommy Emmanuel.

“Abernethy’s masterful guitar picking and poetic folk chanting combined with a lively melody captures a wholesome moment when it feels like sweetness is hard to come by. The entire world seems like it’s up in flames, but this moment Abernethy shared with a family of birds captured in song provides us a drop of desperately needed honey.” - BTRToday on “Birds In The Chimney”

Two Way Street Coffee House

Two Way Street Coffee House Virtual Stream

Singer/Songwriter Kim Moberg performs a virtual one hour show of original songs. 8pm CT | 8pm ET

With almost 50 years of continuous operation, the Two Way Street Coffee House, located in Downers Grove IL, is the oldest music coffee house in the Midwest, and almost the oldest in North America.

During the 1950s and '60s, a number of churches across the country started coffee houses as an attempt at making contact with a segment of the community with whom they otherwise had no contact. Coffee houses took many forms. Some were political, some artistic, some activistic, some musical, some even religious. Together with other Downers Grove area groups, the high school youth of the First Congregational Church of Downers Grove wanted to do something to address this concern, especially for teens and young adults in the community.

Where music has been a major part of the coffee house, the real priority has been people. That extends to the performers. More than fifty percent of the performers are chosen from the local area to support those who face a shortage of good listening rooms. The coffee house also books national touring performers to create a reciprocal arrangement so local performers can find open venues when they tour the country. The Two Way Street has achieved an international reputation and is in great demand by performers from across North America and beyond.

Today, the Two Way Street continues as a community project of the First Congregational United Church of Christ, Downers Grove. It is a place for making new friends, enjoying old friends, and enjoying live folk music. We hope that the coffee house is fulfilling the original mission of providing an atmosphere in the community in which all people can communicate.
