As part of its mission to bring the arts to all communities throughout our region, The Exchange hosts a monthly Blues/Americana/Roots Listening Room in its storefront art gallery on Main Street in Bloomsburg.
On the last Wednesday of every month (more or less, and occasionally other days), from 7 to 9 p.m., the musicians perform in our intimate space at 24 East Main Street, up close and personal. We feature a range of acts – solo artists and small bands, acoustic and electric – in an atmosphere conducive to enjoying and experiencing the music: just a few dozen concertgoers, the musician(s), and the music.
Many other regional venues host Blues music, most of them bars and restaurants, and regional festivals – Destination Blues, Briggs Farm, and Billtown – draw many thousands of attendees annually; the Destination Blues Listening Room offers a unique opportunity for music lovers: all of the advantages of a private house concert, where every attendee can talk with the musicians, where attendees and musicians share the music in a way only possible in such a small venue, but open to the public.
