February 15, 2005

BLOOMINGTON, ILL. — Singer/songwriter Catie Curtis, called a “folk-rock goddess” by The New Yorker, will appear in concert at Illinois Wesleyan's Blue Moon Coffeehouse on Saturday, Feb. 19.

The show, which is free and open to the public, begins at 8 p.m. in Westbrook Auditorium of Presser Hall (1210 Park St., Bloomington).

A native of rural Maine, Curtis went to Boston as part of the burgeoning indie music scene of the early 1990s. She has released six albums, including her latest, Dreaming in Romance Languages, in 2004 on the Vanguard label.

She has toured with Lilith Fair and with such artists as Dar Williams and Mary Chapin Carptner. Her songs have been featured on numerous television shows, including Chicago Hope and Alias.

The Blue Moon Coffeehouse, now in its 13th season, has been selected as one of the top venues for live music in The Pantagraph's "The Best of The Best in Central Illinois" readers' choice survey in 2003 and 2004.

Illinois Wesleyan students, staff, and faculty may reserve seats before the performance by contacting bluemoon@iwu.edu by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 17. For additional information, contact the Blue Moon Coffeehouse information line at (309) 556-3815 or visit Curtis' Web site at www.catiecurtis.com.
