PRINCETON — Anne Heaton and Edie Carey will join their musical talents for a concert at the Princeton Coffeehouse at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The coffeehouse is located at Open Prairie United Church of Christ, 25 E. Marion St. in Princeton. Doors will open at 7 p.m.
Singer-songwriter and classically trained pianist Anne Heaton has amassed awards and praise from critics, fellow artists and fans with her songs that are by turns “tender, barbed and spiritual” (Washington Post). After writing several songs, she performed her first shows as a singer-songwriter during the summer of 1998 at several coffeehouses in New Jersey and New York. In 1999, she made a live tape for fans at shows and in 2001 released her first full length album “Black Notebook.” Soon after its release, she joined forces with a group of New York City’s up-and-coming singer-songwriters including Edie Carey, Teddy Goldstein, and Andrew Kerr to perform as “Live From New York.”
Edie Carey began venturing outside of New York City in 1998 after the release of her debut album, “The Falling Places.” She has played throughout the United States as well as in Canada and the UK. While her first album was a sparsely produced acoustic contemporary folk album, “Call Me Home,” Carey’s follow-up in 2000, was an all-out pop record. Since then, she has released “Come Close,” her 2002 live CD, “When I Was Made” (2004), “Another Kind of Fire” (2006), “itsgonnabegreat” (2008) (a collaboration with singer-songwriter Rose Cousins), and the latest addition to her growing catalog, “Bring the Sea.” Glide Magazine describes Carey as “a wonderful blend of musical styles and lyric as well as harmonic proficiency.”
Heaton and Carey’s appearance at the Princeton Coffeehouse is sponsored by Mimi Cofoid, and Paul and Linda Ernst.
The Princeton Coffeehouse offers a full season of traditional and modern folk, blues and bluegrass music from August through May. All seats are $12 and are general admission.
Open Prairie, the performance venue for the coffeehouse, is completely accessible and there is ample free parking nearby. Fair trade coffee, tea and homemade desserts are available.
