Crys Matthews at Westport’s Voices Cafe Feb 3rd, 8pm
February 3 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Voices Cafe is pleased to present Crys Matthews on Saturday, February 3, 2024, at 8pm. Hailed as “the next Woodie Guthrie,” Crys Matthews is a powerful lyricist who blends Americana, blues, bluegrass, folk, funk and jazz, and among the brightest stars of the new generation of social justice music-makers.
Matthews’ songs of compassionate dissent reflect her lived experience as what she lightheartedly calls “the poster-child for intersectionality.” EARMILK says Matthews offers a “passionate and powerful blend of infectious Americana melodies and folk instrumentation. [She] delivers her honest songwriting through a beautifully raw and unfiltered lens. Oozing soul, her voice bleeds emotion and gratitude, while simple piano melodies and upbeat percussion fill you with appreciation and love for the people around us who fight for change.”
Voices Cafe’s doors open at 7:30pm, showtime is 8:00pm. Tickets and information are available at voicescafe.org. Concert admission is $25 per adult and $15 for individuals under 21.
This venue offers a BYO setting with a choice of coffee-house style seating at tables or individual seating. Guests can bring their own beverages and snacks; coffee and sweet treats will also be available for purchase. Groups of four or more can reserve table space.
Voices Cafe, often called Westport’s musical “gem”, brings the power of song to our local community, while supporting social justice programs across the region. A portion of the venue proceeds will benefit Trans Haven, a program of PeerPride in New Haven. For information and tickets, go to: https://voicescafe.org/
