Special Event July 30, 2016 – Patchouli & Terra Guitarra
National touring guitar duo Patchouli & Terra Guitarra are coming to Fair Haven for the first time to perform on Saturday, July 30 at the Hardware Cafe & General Store. Their soulful fusion of blazing Spanish and world guitar instrumentals and spine tingling vocal harmonies, along with their amazing onstage chemistry make this a concert you will not want to miss. Patchouli & Terra Guitarra represent the very top echelon off today’s acoustic performers, bringing the highest level of skill together with the passion, experience and joy that are a very rare combination indeed.
After seeing these multi-talented musicians perform live in concert this winter, we were inspired to invite the duo to come play at the Hardware Café while on their tour thru NY. They will offer a sonic sneak preview of songs during the Fair Haven Art Center’s Art Show earlier in the afternoon on July 30th. Seating for dinner at the Hardware Café will be until 6:30pm that night with the show beginning at 7pm. Concert tickets are $15 and include wine, soft drinks and dessert.
This unique concert on July 30 when the duo performs their original blend of folk meets flamenco with their blazing guitars and heartstring tugging lyrics, Patchouli’s energy and chemistry guarantees to make the night an uplifting one of music and art that will leave you uniquely inspired and excited to pick that old guitar back up.
A reservation is recommended to secure your seat. Call 315-947-6700 or email hardware_café@aol.com  Tickets are available now at the Hardware Café, 566 Main St., Fair Haven.
