About 333
333 Coffeehouse (aka 333 Concerts) is Annapolis' monthly listening space for folk and acoustic music. It is a non-profit, smoke- and alcohol-free listening room run by volunteers. Our mission is to foster a community of traditional, acoustic and folk music lovers in our local area. 333 is normally held on the third Friday of each month at the Annapolis Friends Meeting, 351 DuBois Rd in Annapolis. Concerts begin at 7:30 PM. Doors open at 7 PM. See Location & Admission for how to get there and what we charge.

The worship room of Annapolis Friends Meeting provides an intimate, cozy performance space. (Almost like a house concert... but with more elbow room, plenty of parking and complete wheelchair accessibility.) Inexpensive drinks, snacks and desserts are served in the lobby during our shows. 333 features mainly traditional folk performers and songwriters. We try to find highly individual artists; "unique" is an overused word, but other things being equal, we like to find performers who don't sound (or write) that much like anyone else we could have booked, or who have an unusual approach to their source material.

333 is run on an all-volunteer basis, and we are always ready to welcome new volunteers. In addition to actually putting on the shows (setting up and resetting the chairs, organizing and selling the refreshments, taking money at the door, sound and lighting jobs), we can use help between shows with publicity and special projects. Volunteers are invited to share a take-out dinner at the venue before the shows, and of course they get in for free... but perhaps the biggest reward is just being part of our merry band! If it sounds like fun, email us (333coffeehouse@gmail.com) or come to a show and inquire.

333 was founded in 1992 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis. Max Ochs was our founding host (he now returns as "Host Emeritus" from time to time). In 2005 (or was it 2006?) Max turned the job over to Janie Meneely. In 2012, 333 moved down the street to its current home at Annapolis Friends Meeting. The current hosts (since 2011) are Tom Rhoads and Amy Ksir, with help from Ernie Tucker, Jan Scopel, and others.

Here's a partial list of past 333 concerts.
