Susanna's Kitchen Coffeehouse

Live music every third Thursday


Great music! Wonderful musicians, great volunteers and a great cause.  Proceeds from the Susanna's Kitchen concerts go to help people in our community who are in need, through Barnabas Connection,  Wimberley Community Assistance Fund, and other Wimberley-area nonprofits, plus scholarships for pre-schoolers at Bright Beginnings.


Great food! Delicious pies, tamales, pizza, coffee, and soft drinks available. Doors open by 7:00 pm. Concerts start at 7:30 pm and are held in the Fellowship Hall at Wimberley United Methodist Church.


Great Cause! We all benefit – those who come to hear the best music in Wimberley, those who have a great time volunteering their talents to produce the concerts, and the people who are helped by our donations. Mark your calendars for every Third Thursday year round.


Tickets are sold ONLY AT THE DOOR. Tickets range in price from $20-$25 depending on the musician. Cash and checks are currently accepted. Students under 18 are $5.  Concerts are not appropriate for small children, as there is no childcare.

To ensure a good seat, and as some concerts sell out, come early!  Ticket sales begin by 6:30 pm. Arrival between 6:30 pm and 6:45 pm is suggested, especially for very popular musicians.  Doors open by 7 pm. Come early, enjoy dinner with us and enjoy the concert experience in a small, intimate environment. Oh, and don't forget that Susanna's Kitchen Concerts take cash or checks at the gate, but not credit cards or other methods of payment.

Eliza Gilkyson
March 21, 2024

According to The Austin American Statesman, Eliza Gilkyson’s “signature as an artist is her courage. She lays it all bare, in song and on stage.”  


Eliza is one of the most respected musicians in Folk, Roots and Americana circles.  Eliza entered the music world as a teenager, recording demos for her father, legendary Terry Gilkyson.  Since then she has released 20 recordings of her own, and her songs have been covered by Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush and Rosanne Cash and have been used in films, PBS specials and on prime-time TV. 


Eliza has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, eTown, XM Radio, Air America Radio and has toured worldwide as a solo artist and alongside many other signature artists, including Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Dan Fogelberg, the Guthrie Family, Jimmy Lafave, Slaid Cleaves, Pete Seeger, Jackson Browne and Kris Kristofferson.  Eliza has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame and is an ongoing winner of the Austin Chronicle’s various music awards, as well as Folk Alliance awards for Best Artist, Best Songwriter and Record of the Year.  


Her CD Land of Milk and Honey was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.  Eliza’s meditative “Requiem,” written as a prayer for those who lost their lives in the devastating tsunami in Southeast Asia, was recorded by the internationally recognized choral group Conspirare, earning a Grammy nomination and winning Europe’s prestigious Edison Award.  In 2011 - 2012, Eliza performed with John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky as “Folk Super Trio” Red Horse, whose CD stayed for months at the top of the Folk Music Charts.  In 2014 Eliza contributed to a track on Jackson Browne’s, Looking Into You.  Her March 2014 release on Red House Records, The Nocturne Diaries, produced by son Cisco Ryder, is a restless contemplative work inspired by the converging forces of her highest hopes and darkest fears.


Join us on March 21 at Susanna’s Kitchen Coffeehouse, Wimberley United Methodist Church, RR 12 and CR 1492, Wimberley, for an evening with Eliza Gilkyson.   Doors open by 7:00 pm, concert begins at 7:30 pm.  Tickets at the door: $25 for adults, $5 kids under 18 (cash or check).  Pizza, nachos, tamales, desserts, coffee and sodas available for purchase.  Proceeds benefit The Barnabas Connection, Wimberley Community Assistance Fund, and Bright Beginning scholarships for low income working mothers.
