Only the shadow knows.

Friday February 6 DAN NAVARRO returns. A singer, songwriter, voice actor, activist, and was half of the duo Lowen & Navarro, Dan has been here many times, and is a gracious engaging performer with many devoted fans.

Dan started his career as a songwriter, most often with Eric Lowen, for artists as diverse as Pat Benatar (the Grammy-nominated “We Belong”) , The Bangles, Jackson Browne, Keb’ Mo’, Dave Edmunds, The Temptations, Dionne Warwick, Dutch superstar Marco Borsato, The Triplets, Austin outlaw legend Rusty Weir and many more…

In the 1990s, he recorded and toured with Lowen in the acclaimed acoustic duo Lowen & Navarro until Eric’s retirement in 2009. Dan has since transitioned into a growing solo career, and graces the Carpe annually.

Saturday February 7 THE PINES- some tickets left. Apparently the public has caught up with this fine act who used to have a few empty chairs.

Thursday February 12 THE NEW PIONEERS are here for their once-a-month gig. Solid, reliable bluegrass treat.

Friday February 13 the BILL CAMPLIN BAND another regular act. Solid, reliable original, folk, jazz, blues, with the official camplin stamp.

LJ BOOTH & CHRIS KOKESH will join us on Valentines Day, Saturday February 14. Couples or singles treat yourselves to this lovely and talented couple. Special dinner? stay posted.

UPCOMING- February (see calendar at right) finishes out with a rash of new and newish (to us) lively acts worthy of your attention. Further on we’ll see Lee Murdock, Sam Llanas, Bobby Long, and Curtis and Loretta.
