Café Pelican will present the inaugural dinner show next month, kicking off a new cabaret series.

Thursday January 13

Carole J. Buford & Pierre Calo

“Poets and gatherers”

The exciting inaugural show of this new four-part cabaret series will feature the hugely popular and much-requested Carole J. Buford, one of the most sought-after young artists on the New York cabaret and jazz scene. Buford will be accompanied on guitar by Pierre Calo, a prolific and gifted musician who has been recognized for his solo work as well as his collaboration with Carly simon and other great artists.

“The lyrics of the songs from our Poets & Pickers celebration have the capacity to make you laugh, break your heart, chill you to the bone or just let you savor the beauty of the words,” the singer promises. The dinner show at the Pelican Café will feature the audience’s favorite acts by Randy Newman, Irving Berlin, Bobbie Gentry, Cole porter, John prine, Kris kristofferson, Kander & Ebb, and more.

“Poets & Pickers” is generously subscribed in part by:
