As part of its mission to bring the arts to all communities throughout our region, The Exchange hosts a monthly Blues/Americana/Roots Listening Room in its storefront art gallery on Main Street in Bloomsburg.​

 

On the last Wednesday of every month, from 7 to 9 p.m., the musicians perform in our intimate space at 24 East Main Street, up close and personal.  We feature a range of acts – solo artists and small bands, acoustic and electric – in an atmosphere conducive to enjoying and experiencing the music: just a few dozen concertgoers, the musician(s), and the music.
