The summer fling of the Delta variant has us once again rethinking how to do safely do our business. The CDC recommends that vaccinated Americans return to wearing masks in indoor spaces in communities where coronavirus transmission is substantial or high, and Jefferson county, Wisconsin, is currently in the substantial category
, so we’ll do our part.
The small space of the listening room prevents any reasonable distancing. For the safety of everyone, and to protect the performers who cannot mask while performing, we will be requiring mask wearing in the backroom, and recommending it in all of our spaces when not eating or drinking
. Keep checking for updates, as circumstances could require further measures, or even cancellation. We are cautiously optimistic that the show will go on.
Please call 920-563-9391 to reserve seats.
KAREN JOHNSON grew up in West Allis, WI, surrounded by music. Her favorite spot was riding along in her dad’s old pick-up truck while listening to old country tunes. At a young age, Karen learned to play the Tamburitza and sing harmony as a member of the American Croatian Silver Strings Tamburitzans. Now playing the guitar, she has been performing at various venues since 1998, but nothing compares to the amazing listening room at the Cafe’ Carpe. Karen sings songs of her favorite artists including Joan Baez, Nanci Griffith, Alison Krauss, and Suzy Bogguss, to name a few.
