Café Series Announces Three Exciting Performances

The next installments of ACCC’s popular Careme’s Café Series will feature three exciting artists.

The season begins on Feb. 21 with Philadelphia singer, songwriter and guitarist Mutlu, who was the subject of an exclusive live video taping for Rolling Stone, Rhapsody and Visa as part of the Blue Note Jazz Series.

On March 27, the café welcomes superlatively witty singer/songwriter Carsie Blanton. Since her move from Oregon to Philadelphia in fall 2006, Carsie has shared the stage with such nationally and regionally hailed acts as Amos Lee, Jeffrey Gaines, Leon Redbone and Joan Armatrading.

The series finale on May 8 will feature Rex Fowler, one half of the legendary folk duo Aztec Two-Step. They have appeared in concert with such superstars as Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Bette Midler and many others. Fowler is also a well-regarded solo artist in his own right, with three solo discs under his belt.

The Careme’s Café Series features an evening of delightful performances by respected acoustic artists, and includes a four-course gourmet dinner prepared by advanced students enrolled in ACCC’s Academy of Culinary Arts.

Dinner is at 6:30 p.m.; shows are at 8:15 p.m. Tickets are $35 and can be ordered at (609) 343-4907 or via e-mail at simmons@atlantic.edu. Reservations are required. Tickets are available for the March 27 and May 8 shows; names are being added to a waiting list for the Feb. 21 performance.
