Welcome home-town-boy-made-good Randy Sabien for a return concert. In addition to enthusiastic recognition for his brilliant violin technique, Randy is celebrated for his innovation and ability to synthesize jazz, country, blues, rock, and other musical styles.
Bill Camplin has been an integral part of the Wisconsin acoustic music scene for many years both as a performer and as co-owner of the legendary Cafe Carpe in Fort Atkinson. Bill is a strong guitarist with a beautiful tenor voice and he is noted for penetrating, intensely emotional performances of both his original songs and his interpretations of others such as Bob Dylan.
The venue offers comfortable all-on-one-floor seating, excellent acoustics, delicious refreshments (including Mama Mia's Pizza while the supply lasts) and off-street parking to the first 95 vehicles (via the Spring Brook Rd entrance just north of Spring Creek Rd).
There is no admission charge but listeners are encouraged to make generous donations to the performers and to purchase their CDs. For those who are able, a minimum $12 donation is suggested for this special event, but all are welcome.
