Milwaukee luthier DENNY RAUEN celebrates 40 years of adventures in lutherie in a series of shows with fellow musicians he has met through his work at venues he loves.   This time has chosen the Carpe, and asked BILL CAMPLIN (remember Bill?) and PETER ROLLER to celebrate with him, each doing 35 minutes.

DENNY will be performing a handful of original tunes from his upcoming album release, 6/8 TIME.

PETER ROLLER is a performer of many Roots guitar styles, a kid from suburban NJ who wound up as the main accompanist for one of the last of the early Southern bluesmen. As a working musician, he is currently performing in settings that range from acoustic and electric blues to French chanson to Soul-Jazz organ trio to Jamaican rock steady to bluegrass and country rock. He is also a teacher, composer, ethnomusicologist and author of the only book documenting U.S. amateur garage bands in generations from the late 50s through the 90s.

BILL CAMPLIN is a regular performer here (duh), has earned the respect of Danny (and others) who have seen his live performances, and is, according to reviewer Kevin Lynch, “the proverbial best singer nobody’s ever heard of, even though he’s known in folk music circles as the guy with the sweet pipes and the droll wit who runs Café Carpe, one of the nation’s best small venues for touring singer-songwriters.

Should be an interesting and fun evening.

Please call 920-563-9391 to reserve seats and to indicate whether you are likely to eat here that night.
