Stone Soup Coffeehouse at the Music Mansion

Contact Info
88 Meeting Street
Stone Soup is one of the oldest coffeehouse venues in New England. Stone Soup has presented many gifted acoustic musicians and songwriters from Rhode Island and the New England Area. We also have a history of recognizing talent and is proud to have featured many artists, such as Dar Williams, Ingrid Michaelson, The Low Anthem, and Erin McKeown. Forty years ago, several Rhode Island musicians and songwriters were inspired by Pete Seeger to share their music with each other and a wider audience. Stone Soup Folk Arts Foundation and Stone Soup Coffeehouse resulted. The name “Stone Soup” was taken from the folk tale about building community. In the story a beggar coming in to town is initially rebuffed by the townspeople. He offers to make his special “stone” soup and invites all to partake, eventually winning over the town and their communal contributions to make a truly magical soup. The magic is the building of a community, which is what we do at Stone Soup. At Stone Soup, artists, volunteers and audiences bring something special to a performance and the result is truly magical. Most shows start at 7pm. Doors open 1/2 hour before the concert. All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. As always, our goodies will be included in the price of the tickets. Donations, however, are graciously accepted and passed along to a sponsored charity.
