Raspberry Cosmo at Carmen’s!
As long as we can get these delightfully fresh, grown-in-America Red Raspberries, we are happy to serve delightful drinks like the Raspberry Cosmopolitan. Made with Saki so it’s light and treats your head right. NA version available.
Beef & Chorizo Sliders
You can tell we took our time with the picture, there’s only one left on the plate. Sure, we are happy to sell you just one, in this case there’s a side of Yucca Fries with it. But most people order two. They just seem to go down better that way.
The Nellies are an Albany, NY based, rootsy, alt-country, Americana band. The band is driven by core singer-songwriter duo, Karen Ann Gilpin (acoustic guitar/banjo) and Peggy Lecuyer (mandolin/harmonica) who both contribute driving rhythms and beautiful two part harmonies to their songs. They are joined by Gene Lemme who keeps The Nellies in line on the upright bass. Also joining The Nellies at shows are an assortment of stellar lead players such as Kevin Maul and Mike McMann, as well as others. You will find The Nellies’ energy contagious. Their fun loving stage presence will put a smile on your face.
Karen Ann and Peggy write a number of the songs that The Nellies perform and combine them with well chosen covers performed by Fred Eaglesmith, Donna the Buffalo, The Grateful Dead, Kasey Chambers, Gram Parsons, Abigail Washburn, Bob Dylan and Gillian Welch as well as the inclusion of some favorite, traditional bluegrass songs.
The Nellies have proudly released their first CD in October of 2011 and are laying the musical groundwork for their next release. You will find The Nellies playing at a variety of events and venues in the greater Albany, NY area – please go to our gigs tab to see where we’ll be playing next and feel free to contact us to play at a venue near you!
