Ascension Coffee House

Rick McKee – host of Ascension Coffee House

Ascension Coffee House is a local listening room for original music that allows songwriters to share their creative work with an appreciative audience. Each month a different songwriter is featured, hosted by Rick McKee. McKee is a singer/songwriter, composer, music educator, and multi-instrumentalist from Cartersville. He has released two albums on the Cosmic Possum label.

Although Coffee House is a free event for the community, donations are encouraged for the student food pantries at Cartersville and Cass High Schools, as well as other outreach ministries. You can help others in our community by bringing a non-perishable food item. Needed items include Ramen Noodles, boxes of instant oatmeal, granola bars, fruit cup 4-pack, easy Mac cups, individually-packaged cans of soup, single-serve cans of ravioli & beanie weanies, 6-packs of applesauce, packs of raisins. Any food that is individually wrapped is helpful. Cash donations are accepted towards the Red Door Food Pantry or the Rector’s Discretionary Fund that assists those in need in our immediate community.

Ascension Coffee House usually takes place on the 2nd Friday of each month (except July) at 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Check our Facebook page for the most current information and livestream of events. Thank you and we’ll see you at the next Ascension Coffee House!
