Jeffrey Foucault with Chelsea Berry
May 10th through May 12th
“Contemporary and Timeless.” — The New York Times
A show played perfectly to an empty bar. A singer with life and death on his shoulders, swinging a microphone like Samson swung a jawbone. The real ones who die with nothing half the time. With SALT AS WOLVES, Jeffrey Foucault gives us in sound and image what poet and author Chris Dombrowski calls in the album’s liner notes, “that rare artistic combination of a voice and a world”: a tough, spare collection of darkly rendered blues and ballads, like a field recording of a place that never existed. In a series of letters to lovers, friends, heroes, and family, Foucault deftly weaves together disparate strands of sound and experience, raw love, and hard wisdom.
THE NEW YORKER:
“Jeffrey Foucault, sings stark, literate songs that are as wide open as the landscape of his native midwest.”
“The music of Wisconsin native Foucault is the kind so many aspire to but never attain: beat-up troubadour folk whittled to dolorous perfection…”
Chelsea Berry opens the evening with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling...she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.”
Jeffrey Foucault with Chelsea Berry is presented by Whistling Swan Productions.
Runs approximately 2 hours including intermission.
BABIES — STRONGLY Discouraged. Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN - Recommended for ages 9 and older.
Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we have found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
