Brewer’s Sessions Video Series Brings Local Musical Talent to the Coffee Shop

A Manchester coffee shop has its own version of NPR’s Tiny Desk series.



I’m disappointed in myself for just finding out about this great little series that Brewer’s Cafe (1125 Bainbridge St) is putting on with the help of local NPR affiliate WCVE. Brewer’s Sessions shines the spotlight on local musical talent.

Style Weekly has an excellent article on the creation of the series and the force behind this and so many other great events happening in Manchester.

Musicians set up behind the counter at Brewer’s Cafe, sip on coffee or tea and perform while the cameras roll. With the shop’s deep sinks, chalkboard menu, espresso machines and cash register serving as the backdrop for these little concerts, it’s funky yet warm. He hopes it will fill a niche in Richmond’s music scene.

“When I’m thinking about the life that I want, most people talk about the school their kids go to, the career they have, and completely forget about entertainment and the social scene,” Brewer says. “I was kind of over not being accepted in certain circles, in certain restaurants, at certain clubs, so I just created my own vibe.”

Here’s the latest and you can check out the rest at Brewer’s Sessions which even has a handy subscribe link.
