He Said She Said: Peter Karp and Sue Foley
He Said She Said
Peter Karp & Sue Foley
Saturday February 19, 2011 - 8 PM
$25 general admission
"He Said - She Said" is the new inspired show with 2 guitars and an electric band featuring a collaboration of original songs by Peter Karp and Sue Foley. The project is based around a correspondence the two shared through letters that were written over a year period. These letters started as a casual exchange between two committed performers sharing their common bond of the loneliness of the road, the pain of separation from family and home and above all, the drive to make music. But as time went on the letters they shared became more poignant, more revealing. Those letters became their songs. The result is "He Said - She Said." The show features songs of two artists in development, sharing artistic purpose and spiritual kinship in a meeting of hearts and minds. Whether they're performing as an acoustic duo or with their electric band the music encompasses elements of folk, jazz, flamenco, and blues resulting in a show that is moving, literate, romantic, rocking and exciting.
HE: Gifted songwriter and American troubadour, Peter Karp, is a master songsmith with an art for spinning true-to-life emotions, humor, and candor. With an upbringing that was equal parts southern Alabama and the swamps of New Jersey, Karp's music is fueled by the Yankee-Rebel juxtaposition. A critically acclaimed songwriter, an accomplished guitarist and pianist who repeatedly transfixes audiences across the US and Canada. Critics compare his song-writing to John Hiatt and John Prine with impressive guitar and slide licks infused by his love of Freddy King and Elmore James. Peter Karp personifies the amorphous Americana sound, seamlessly blending blues and roots music with a high sense of entertainment.
SHE: Sue Foley is considered to be one of the finest blues/roots artists working today. Born to a working class family Sue spent her early childhood moving from Canadian town to town with her mother. At 16 she embarked on her professional career. By 21 she was living in Austin TX and recording for legendary blues label Antone's Records. Her first CD "Young Girl Blues" quickly established her unique talents as a blues guitarist and songwriter. Throughout the 90's she took to the road with her paisley Telecastor and honed her craft working/sharing the stage with such artists as BB King, Buddy Guy, Lucinda Williams and Tom Petty. After moving back to Canada Sue won the prestigious Juno award for her critically acclaimed CD "Love Coming Down."
It's been a busy summer for Peter Karp & Sue Foley, touring in support of their new cd "The Letters". Most recently the band wowed the audience at the Pittsburgh Blues Festival while being recorded for the nationally syndicated Beale Street Caravan radio show. More info at www.bealestreetcaravan.com
