The Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse is a nonprofit community arts organization dedicated to promoting public awareness and understanding of traditional music—music that is rooted in and expressive of the great variety of regional, ethnic, and social cultures of peoples throughout the world. We are supported by your attendance, grants, musicians' benefit performances, volunteer efforts, and your generous tax deductible donations.
Support the Freight
The Freight continues to be a special gathering place for those of us who enjoy exploring the richness of traditional music. Nothing draws people together like a shared musical experience, and nowhere is there a more welcoming environment for audiences and musicians than the vibrant and diverse community that is the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse.
You can make a donation with cash, check, or credit card at the box office,
by phone at (510) 644-2020, x120, or online.
