Visiting Artist Concert

triciawalier3Tricia Walker

Tricia Walker’s resume runs from the Mississippi Delta to Nashville and back. Along with touring with the likes of Shania Twain, Paul Overstreet, and Connie Smith, she has penned songs recorded by Faith Hill, Patty Loveless and Alison Krauss (whose performance of Tricia’s Looking In The Eyes Of Love won a Grammy). Tricia’s HEART OF DIXIE moved us to request she come celebrate Freedom Summer with us. Tricia also heads the Delta Music Institute at Delta State University where The New Agrarians recently recorded their new CD, so we know she’s a Back Door natural! Invite your friends, but especially bring yourself, around back on Friday, June 6 for the 7:30pm concert—and yes, we open the doors by 7:00 so you can get a good table!

About the Back Door Coffee House

unnamedUniversity Baptist Church has served as the host of the monthly Back Door Coffeehouse since 1992. The Back Door is a unique ministry of community where local writers, musicians, and poets are featured in an intimate and relaxed candlelight and coffee atmosphere typically held on the first Friday of every month from 7:30 – 9:30P.M. There is no charge for admission, although donations for soft drinks, candy, coffee, etc. are appreciated.

Periodically, various nationally known musicians and performers are secured by donations from patrons and neighborhood sponsors for special concerts to promote this unique artistic venue to a larger audience. Such acclaimed recording artists as Kate Campbell, Pierce Pettis, Caroline Herring, Tracy Grammer, and Steve Forbert have graced our stage, though we are also proud to promote the talents of our own regional musicians and writers. Performers often portray a wide variety of ideas and styles. In supporting the open and honest artistic expression of our neighbors, there will at times be some readings neither intended nor appropriate for children. A nursery worker is provided for parents without additional cost.

If you wish to receive our monthly Back Door Coffeehouse e-mail messages, please contact us at We open the back doors of the UBC fellowship hall by 7:00pm and the show (usually 3 live sets of music and/or readings) begins at 7:30.

Bring a friend or come makes some new ones. We look forward to seeing you at the Back Door.

If you have questions about performing, promoting, or otherwise becoming involved with the coffeehouse, please contact David Walker at the Coffeehouse e-mail address above.
