The Focal Point

This cozy spot in Maplewood's arts district features theater-style seating and an elevated stage where the crème de la crème of traditional music perform regularly. The Focal Point primarily offers grass-fed pure folk, as well as the time-honored sounds of Celtic, Cajun, blues and Americana curated by a volunteer-driven old-time music consortium. The Focal Point also offers open mics and songwriter showcases on the regular. You won't hear traditional Spanish canciones, but the Focal Point is Siamese twins with Maya Cafe, so you don't have even have to leave the building to enjoy dinner and a show.
