Performed all over the World!

Burlap to Cashmere will take you back in time to the magical stage of Greenwich Village in the early 60s where there was a scene forming in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City.  Emerging from legendary venues such as CafĂ© Wha and the Bitter End, this movement would blow new life into traditional folk music and produce such legendary and influential artists as Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, James Taylor, and Cat Stevens. 

 




Then came the 1990’s, which saw the resurrection of the storied Greenwich Village tradition through a band called Burlap to Cashmere.  Standing on the shoulders of their influential predecessors, their first album met critical acclaim.  Quickly becoming known for their unique sound, energetic live shows and introspective lyrics underscored by their remarkable musicianship, that album went on to sell nearly a half million records and propelled Burlap to stardom. Their extensive tour schedule has since taken the band across the U.S. and overseas, traveling through Europe and South America, playing for U.S troops in the Middle East, and even performing before the Pope in Rome to a crowd of over three million.

Now, Burlap to Cashmere has put together a show that will take the audience on a journey back in time to the magical stage of Greenwich Village, where it all began.  Celebrating folk music from the 60s, 70’s and beyond, they shine a light on their influential roots and all of the greats that came before them.

...a stripped-down sound and focused lyrics, reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel and Cat Stevens. Their blend of Mediterranean rhythms and tight knit harmonies helps them stand out among popular folk-rock acts including Mumford & Sons, Avett Brothers and Fleet Foxes.
