Jason Vieaux‘s mother was a school librarian who bought him his first classical guitar for $50 when he was a young boy. Fast forward several decades later and Mr. Vieaux is now a Grammy-winning musician who tours internationally, performing to eager audiences at almost every major classical guitar festival in the world. Vieaux is also no stranger to Philly: He’s Curtis faculty, and he’s performed numerous concerts here. He’ll be returning to World Cafe Live on May 7th to perform with the Al-Bustan Takht Ensemble, part of the LiveConnections concert series which aims to pair unlikely artists for interesting music making. We caught up with Vieaux to discuss his upcoming show and why Philly is such a hotbed for classical music. Read more »
Some of life’s questions are simply too great to ever be answered. Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? But this week, two different groups are tackling the age old question: does beer or wine pair better with food?
World Cafe Live has just announced an event that fits in perfectly with this week’s Meat Week theme. Back in 2013, World Cafe Live hosted Where’s The Beef? A Vegan Beer Dinner. On Monday, March 30th, they’re hosting the counterpart, Here’s the Beef, an 8-course tasting menu of braised meats, dry rubs and slow roasted cuts of beer. All of that meat will be paired with 8 beers, all of which are at least 8% alcohol by volume.
Tickets are $50 per person and include all the meat and beer.
