Founded in 2016, St Tim's Coffeehouse presents a six concert series annually. These concerts are held in the sanctuary of St. Timothy's Lutheran Church in Skokie, IL. We present local, national, and international artists predominantly in the folk/Americana genre.
Artists we have hosted include Michael Peter Smith, Bryan Bowers, Small Potatoes, Howard Levy, Eddie Holstein with guest Bonnie Koloc, Claudia Schmidt, Sally Rogers, Sons of the Never Wrong, Spyten Duyvil, Lee Murdoch, Joel Mabus, James Lee Stanley, Tim Grimm, Mark Dvorak, Andrew Calhoun, and Gina Forsyth.
In March 2020, we closed our doors to live concerts due to COVID-19 and by mandate from the State of Illinois. We do not have plans for live performances in 2021. Currently, we have a virtual stage through Zoom and You Tube platforms. Advance ticket sales are through eventcombo.com.
Coming up on our virtual stage:

His innovative music is rooted in tradition. "You can't understand folk music without studying history, and vice versa," Calhoun says.
