      EVENT DETAILS
      Leo Coffeehouse

      The Leo Coffeehouse is one of the oldest, longest running folk and acoustic music venues in the United States. The Leo was started in 1963, when a group of students at the University of Cincinnati formed the Queen City Balladeers and the Leo Coffeehouse.

      The coffeehouse first opened in the basement of the University of Cincinnati YMCA and was originally called the Wise Owl. The named was changed to the Leo Coffeehouse and the music continued at the University Y for many years. The Leo moved down the street to Old St. George’s Church in 1999, and moved to its current home, Zion United Church of Christ in Norwood, in 2006.

      Over the years, many nationally-known artists like John Denver and Utah Phillips have performed at Leo, but the coffeehouse is mainly an outlet for the many Tri-state area artists. These artists love performing to a “listening room.” where they don’t have to compete with pick-up lines and drunken conversations (as they do in bars) or the grinding of the espresso machines (as they do in most coffeehouse.)

      Cost: Free - No admission fee, but we do accept and appreciate donations -- $3 per person is normal for non-members. Or become a member: Single: $15.00; Household: $20.00; Single with a guest pass: $20.00; ($10.00 if you live over 50 miles away) Find out more at: http://queencityballadeers.org
