Jazz Beyond Borders Presents “Blue Tapestry” At Cafe Mezzanotte


Jazz at the Mezz concerts will continue with another offering Sunday, October 16. The series is presented monthly by Jazz Beyond Borders and Severna Park restaurant Cafe Mezzanotte.

On October 16, award-winning Quebecoise vocalist Lynn Veronneau and English guitarist Ken Avis will be joined by acclaimed jazz and world musicians Karine Chapdelaine (bass), and Manny Arciniega (percussion) to interpret the music of Joni Mitchell's “Blue” and Carole King's “Tapestry.

Recorded simultaneously, in the same studio in 1971, the milestone albums changed American music forever, marking the end of the 1960s while putting women vocalist-composers centerstage. They reached across generations, appealing to a new and wider audience of music lovers and attracting loyal listeners from around the world. Enjoy a fresh presentation of these soulful, jazz-flavored sounds with the newly created "Blue Tapestry" program.

Cafe Mezzanotte is located at 760 Ritchie Highway in Severna Park. Shows are held in a spacious setting with a full bank of windows on the side and a fireplace used when a chill is in the air. The restaurant offers a Mediterranean menu, and parking is free and easy.

Seating for the 4:30pm show is at 4:00pm. Seating for the 7:00pm show is at 6:30pm. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online from instant seats (select Cafe Mezzanotte as the venue). Please note: the box office closes two hours before the show and most shows sell out in advance.
