Folding Sky is first and foremost a band. A band in the old and real sense. Family. Committed. Telepathic. Folding Sky, based in Albany New York, has released 5 albums of original material: The brand new “Lost Roots” (2010), “Dancing with My Guitar” (2002), “Ghostyard” (2004), “FOUR DAYS IN THE GARDEN”(2006), and “Acoustic Sky” (2007).

Charlie Smith Blues Phenom

Charlie Smith & Bob Aronstein: The Blues Men are Back

Get rhythm when you get the blues. These guys have the stuff to get your feet happy again despite the drop in temperatures, the longer nights, and the chill winds coming over the ice floes. You can put it all away as you start tapping your toes, bopping to the beat these cats lay down as they have for decades. Masters of facilitating good times is what they do best. Charlie can evoke that sophisticated big city Chicago blues in the vein of Otis Rush, or just as handily, take you on a river cruise of the Delta. Bob is going to tickle those ivories in a perfect weave to Charlie’s guitar licks. It’s a killer combination, it’s a blues sensation.

If these words could only conjure the experience. Perhaps the best way is to experience this yourself, live and in person. What could be better than to gather your best friends to this small out-of-the way cafe to enjoy some delicious tapas and homemade sangria wine? Get the picture? Get rhythm! Get on down! Friday December 2nd. Cafe is open 5-10PM. Music 6:30 – 9:30. Only 5 bucks cover and plenty of on-street parking. If it’s your first time, click on these good directions wherever you’re coming from
