Careme's Café Series Swings into Spring with Two Great Artists

January 22, 2009

 

The next installments of Atlantic Cape Community College's popular Careme's Café Series will feature two exciting artists.

The 2009 series gets under way on Thursday, Feb. 19, with longtime area favorite, Patty Blee. This sultry singer/songwriter delivers a soulful blend of country-inspired folk, accompanied by distinctly intricate guitar artistry. Blee has shared the stage with many legends. Most recently, she opened for Boz Skaggs at the Bergen PAC. Blee will perform songs from her new EP, "From the Inside."

Up next on Thursday, April 23, is Jeffrey Foucault, a singer/songwriter from Southeastern Wisconsin. His 2001 debut album, "Miles from the Lightning," won much praise from critics and helped to kick-start a career of tours across the United States, Canada and Europe. He also received critical raves for his 2006 album "Ghost Repeater." Foucault's music is being featured in the documentary film "Class C." The New York Times described him as, "A young man with an old soul...contemporary and timeless."

In addition to featuring an evening of delightful performances by respected acoustic artists, the Careme's Café Series includes a four-course gourmet dinner prepared by students enrolled in ACCC's distinguished Academy of Culinary Arts, under the supervision of chef educators. 

Dinner is at 6:30 p.m.; shows are at 8:15 p.m. Tickets are $35 and can be ordered from Anna Simmons at (609) 343-4907, or via e-mail at simmons@atlantic.edu.  Reservations are required.
