ANDREW DUNN / MAY 5TH

Andrew Dunn is a songwriter from Jersey, where talent seems to grow in the fertile soil. His poignant wit and infectious melodies are staples of his canon of memorable story songs drawn from everyday theater of life moments. Raised in the Raritan Valley of central New Jersey, he spent years playing trumpet for school marching band before discovering the acoustic guitar and songwriting in his late teens.

Finding his instrument, he quickly found his network and graduated from Rowan University with a music education degree while trading notes, swapping songs and gigging with rising folk singers of the time, Antje Duvekot, Jackie Tice and Gregg Cagno, among others. He was an invited participant on the songwriting compilation, Southside Sunday Nights, Vol. 1, which included John Gorka, the preeminent songwriter of that time. Andrew spent over a decade as a school music teacher while honing his passion for rock and roll, country and folk into an acoustic folk-pop sound all his own.

Doors open at 7:15. Refreshments, including coffee, soft drinks, and desserts are all on the house. There is no cover charge but donations are appreciated.

KATE VARGAS / FEBRUARY 3RD

 

“When you hear Kate Vargas sing, you don’t forget it. Her smoky, heartfelt vocals make an immediate impression.” – Justin Remus, Groundsounds

Vargas has been called an Americana outlaw, a clever and curious songwriter, with tales and truths weaving through a delightful blend of folk, blues, and country by way of an undeniably unique voice. Born and raised in New Mexico, southwestern culture and storytelling traditions inspire many of her lyrical themes. Elmore Magazine calls Kate “an unapologetic badass” & “a dynamic addition to any musicians-to-watch list”, while The Huffington Post raves, she “connects with the music on an emotional level that will take listeners on a wild ride and back.” The talented singer-songwriter has charmed audiences, both nationally and internationally, with a sound that, The Deli Magazine insists, is “like the sound of a favorite bourbon come to life.”

Refreshments, including coffee, soft drinks, and desserts are all on the house.  There is no cover charge but donations are appreciated.
