The Acoustic Café is thrilled to welcome back Sloan Wainwright!
Sloan has been called a force of nature and you can hear her in Park Ridge!
Defying standard categorization, singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles - pop, folk, jazz and blues - held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto. With the end result being a unique and soulful hybrid. Sloan’s incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs. Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music. Sloan’s incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs.
Harmony-driven acoustic duo The Levins celebrate the release of their second CD, Trust , with a special showcase set of songs. The CD brings their uplifting music to a universal level, with a lighthearted depth and a celebration of our common humanity.
"The Levins speak to our better selves with their crystalline harmonies & uplifting lyrics.” - John Platt,WFUV -
