New solo acoustic music series in Ottawa’s finest Creperie

Built around the increasingly popular concept of a house concert, Sounds Simple is designed to feel as warm and comfortable as you’d expect a house concert to be with the added bonus of a café menu that offers a delicious selection of sweet and savoury crepes, chocolate confections, hot chocolate, premium teas and coffee.

A Thing For Chocolate opened one year ago in a converted house in Wellington West. Omar Fares, the owner and chef, imagined a friendly café where he knew his customers by name, customers who would return time and time again and one day, they could enjoy live music performances right there in the café. That time has come!

RedLeaf Music, an Ottawa music management company, has put together a weekly music series featuring solo acoustic artists from Ottawa and around the province. Partnering with local community builders the Ottawa Grassroots Festival and CKCU 93.1 FM, the series promises to inspire and delight attendees while creating the opportunity for many new friendships to grow.

Arrive early to secure a seat. No reservations accepted.

Sounds Simple is a “pass the hat” event. No tickets or cover charge.
