Polly Paulusma and Annie Dressner became friends after meeting at the Cambridge Folk Festival.
Paulusma’s 2004 debut Scissors In My Pocket earned her critical acclaim and support slots with Bob Dylan. Fourth album Pivot is being released a song a month.
Dressner, three albums in, has received recognition and BBC radio play since arriving in UK from NYC in 2011. Shire Folk: “one of the freshest and most enjoyable releases of 2018”. New album release spring 2020.
In this special co-headline evening, these formidable songwriters and friends support one another to present heart-felt acoustic music, songwriting and harmonies.
Kitchen Garden Café is a tranquil oasis in the heart of Kings Heath’s busy shopping centre, combining a garden shop, café, deli and meeting room surrounding an old blue brick courtyard.
At the licensed Café you’ll find a variety of delicious and wholesome things to eat, all freshly made right here, including an A la Carte Menu on Thursday to Saturday evenings and Sunday lunch. The vast majority of our food is organic and, wherever possible, fairly traded and supplied by local producers. We have a separate children’s menu and play area.
There’s also a Deli where you can purchase organic and locally sourced food to take home, including local and organic cheeses, organic wines, beers & spirits, plus jams and preserves made in our own kitchen. And, because we know you want to make good food at home too, we stock a range of groceries and fresh organic fruit and vegetables.
You can hire our meeting room or even the whole café for your meetings, celebrations and events. We can supply hot and cold buffets to suit a range of budgets.
We also host a number of regular and one-off events, including the Retort (an eclectic mix of music, comedy, poetry and alternative cabaret and the Storytelling Café (bringing storytelling back to adult audiences).
