Americana songs and boogie-woogie piano make for a musical weekend at Café Luna
Café Luna will be full of music this weekend, with two free concerts planned.
Ben Gilmer, who plays music described as “genuine Americana,” will play at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10.
Gilmer grew up in the mountains of southwestern Virginia. He said his songwriting reflects a sense of place deeply rooted in southern Appalachia — honest songs about hard times, family and love.
Gilmers’s debut album, “Juxtaposed,” features several of Virginia and West Virginia’s most well-known Americana and alt-country musicians and has already received great reviews.

Pianist Rolf Jones-Moore will return to the café for a free show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11.
“He was here in July and the audience was captivated,” Café Luna owner Natalie Sheard said. “We’re thrilled to have him back.”
Jones-Moore, who plays orginal blues, jazz and boogie piano, has performed professionally for more than 25 years.
