25 Years of Great Acoustic Music

With the Lúnasa show, the Acoustic Brew will be celebrating 25 years of bringing quality, affordable live music to State College. Show number 1 was on February 22, 1992 and featured Simple Gifts with Kevin Morrissey opening. We’re still planning, so check back for details or sign up for the brewlist to get all the latest info in your inbox.

Acoustic Brew Highlights

  • Simple Gifts has performed at the Acoustic Brew 11 times (and graciously donated the returns from their shows back to the Brew, and into more great music for you.)
  • Andy Tollins (solo, and with various groupings) has appeared 6 times, and Rustical Quality String Band 5 times.
  • In the Fall 17 Season, we’ll also be celebrating our 300th show!
