Cafe Carpe, 18 S. Water St.
Fort Atkinson, WI 53538 United States

“Nothing cuts to the core like a simple song,” says CHRIS KASPER. More than a dozen years into his acclaimed career, the singer/songwriter gets back to the bluesy basics with his fifth album, O, the Fool.

Fort Atkinson, WI 53538 United States

VANCE GILBERT burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90’s when buzz started spreading in the folk clubs of Boston about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking ’em dead at open mics. Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, Vance started out hoping to be a jazz singer, and then discovered his affinity for the storytelling sensibilities of acoustic folk music. Once word got out about Gilbert’s stage-owning singing and playing, Shawn Colvin invited him to be special…
