Kent State alumnus to play tonight at Kent Presbyterian

It’s a concert at a church, but he’s not a religious artist.

Folk singer Abe Quigley will be playing tonight at the Kent Presbyterian Church.

“He is very mainstream,” the Rev. Aaron Meadows said. “He sounds like a mix between John Mayer and Dave Matthews.”

Meadows said Quigley, a 1998 Kent State graduate, played at the church last year and was a big hit with students.

“Abe Quigley is a fantastic acoustic guitar player with great lyrics,” Meadows said.

The Kent Presbyterian Church is offering free food and coffee at the show at 8 p.m. in Grazier Hall. Kent Presbyterian is located at 1456 E. Summit St.

Meadows said Quigley just started an East Coast tour and the concert may be a last chance to see him perform in Kent.

“It’s a good opportunity to see him before he gets too big for a venue like ours,” Meadows said.
