Curtis and Loretta in concert with James Faretheewell

Café Artichoke behind Artichoke Music is humming with a new season of musical performance. Saturday October 11 is a rare treat double- bill featuring Curtis and Loretta from Minnesota and our own Poet Laureate of Bizzaroville, James Faretheewell, a natural pairing since Curtis and James encountered each other many years ago when both were living in Texas.This is the first time they get to share a concert together.
Curtis Teague and Loretta Simonet are a husband and wife duo. Their expressive music is filled with extraordinary harmonies and a proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments including Celtic harp, mandocello, mandolin, guitars, clawhammer banjo, and National steel ukulele as well as kazoo, harmonica, and shakers. They perform originals, and traditional pieces from the British Isles, America, and beyond. Throughout, Curtis’ down-home sense of humor and Loretta’s theatricality are engaging and endearing.

Faretheewell is a local songwriting powerhouse treasure with a vivid sense of cabaret and the melodic. A member of the rock and roll band The Foolhardy, he is a poetic and passionate acoustic/electric songwriter and an engaging, thought-provoking entertainer. More jamesfaretheewell.com.
