Burlap Lute to Perform

Four SCA musicians, collectively known as Burlap Lute, will give a performance December 18, 2004 at the Mine Street Coffee House in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Arden, spokesman for the group, writes:

Hello Peoples!

Burlap Lute (Arden, Cynon, Grainne and Sabine) is once again playing at Mine Street! This Saturday, December 18th at the Mine Street Coffee House series in New Brunswick. A full evening of music, including medieval renaissance and folk tunes along with a smattering of holiday music. And Paul isn't even complaining about going to New Brunswick (a Rutgers joke...). We are looking forward to playing at this great venue and hope you'll join us. Take a break from your holiday shopping to enjoy an evening of great medieval, renaissance, and folk music. Music runs 8:30pm to about 10:30pm.

Where to find it:
Mine Street Coffee House is located in the First Reformed Church. Street address is 9 Bayard St., New Brunswick, NJ 08810; phon! e:(732)249-7877.

Basic directions:
Take the NJ Turnpike to Exit 9 (New Brunswick). From the exit follow Rt.18 North/West toward New Brunswick/Piscataway. Cross over US Rt.1 (a somewhat messy cloverleaf) and go past the Rutgers Cook/Douglas Campus. Just after New St., take the exit for Rt.27 heading south (if you go over the Raritan River on Rt. 27, you are going the wrong way). On Rt. 27 just past the highway, make a left onto Nielson St (the sign is hard to see - it's the first possible left, and does not cross over Rt.27). If you hit George St. you've gone too far. Nielson is one way in the correct direction. Take the third right onto Bayard St. (also one way). The church is on that corner, and this time we'll be playing the main hall. There is some street parking in the area, as well as a garage on Bayard.

To get out, follow Bayard to George St and make a right. Follow George to Rt.27 and make a right. Take R! t.27 about 3 blocks to Rt. 18, and follow that to Turnpike.

Please be aware there is ongoing construction on Rts. 1 and 18 in New Brunswick, which can slow things down in the area, so allow some extra time.

See ya there!
