About Zoe Wren: Since developing her craft as a London Underground busker, Zoë Wren has been invited to play shows from the Cambridge Folk Festival to opening for Ralph McTell. Described as 'refreshingly bold', her songs hook you from the first line, with a voice that is 'clear and shivers with silver'. Zoë’s music draws influence from the unorthodox harmonies of Joni Mitchell and the candid storytelling of Tracy Chapman, and has been heard on BBC Radio 2 and London Live. Zoë's debut album Reckless River was named Fatea Magazine's Debut Album of the Year 2020. Zoë has also appeared on The One Show, BBC One, promoting her work with music and dementia for charity Live Music Now. A previous winner of the PRS Lynsey de Paul Prize, Zoë’s album was supported by grants from the Alan Surtees Trust and the Drake YolanDa Award, as well as the generous contributions of her fast-growing community on Twitch, where she livestreams weekly as a Twitch Partner. Zoë also performs with Jasmine Watkiss as duo Roswell, winners of Purbeck Rising 2018. www.zoewren.com

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.
