After a successful inaugural season with six sold out performances, Voices Café is back for year two with twelve scheduled shows.
We’re kicking off our first show with Buskin and Batteau. The New York Times called them: "The most musically sophisticated act in folk" and The Boston Globe summed them up in two words: "Acoustic Heaven".
While Buskin and Batteau have been winning hearts and minds with their soulful acoustic balladry and fun-filled performances it's their unique combination of instrumental virtuosity (piano and violin, primarily, though both play other instruments as well), soaring vocal harmonies and unparalleled lyric-writing that prompts standing ovations and rhapsodic reviews.
And with the help of uber-percussionist Marshal Rosenberg, they manage to kick the rhythm pretty hard. His array of congas, djembe, snare, bongo, bells, triangle, and cymbals is like being a kid in a toy store for anyone who has ever tapped out a rhythm on a steering wheel or pots and pans.
