Donnerstag Januar 27. - Joe's Bar Showcase: Jona Byron & Curly Hair
Jona Byron (AUS) is purportedly a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid which carries a guitar and sings from the trees, originally discovered in Melbourne, Australia until 2010, when he was spotted in Berlin. Also spotted in Berlin is anti-folk group Curly Hair (Brighton, UK) who bring their charming, thrift-shop pop to Joe's Bar this Thursday 27.

Doors at 21:00. Eintritt 4€. Joe's Bar, Schönhauser Allee 157, Prenzlauer Berg.

Samstag Februar 19. - Wohnzimmer Konzert: Roland Satterwhite & Gosia Winter & poet Linden Horvath
For the first living room concert of 2011, welcome back a previous Sofa Salon guest, Berlin-based violinist and songwriter Roland Satterwhite (Berlin/USA) alongside with talented folk-jazz chanteuse Gosia Winter (Berlin/AUS). This will be a joyful and sassy jazz-influenced night from these two wonderful voices. Our poet will be the thoughtful and wry Berlin-based writer Linden Horvath (USA/Berlin).

Donnerstag Februar 24. - Joe's Bar Showcase: Janin Johannsen & Sarsaparilla plus poet to be announced

Sarsaparilla was one of the first musicians I saw live in Berlin. He has a lovely way with words and a sweet, organic sound for fans of Devemdra Banhart. Janin Johannsen has an emotional, crystaline voice, delicate folk style and a fascination with Elvis. A gorgeous night ahead!

Doors at 21:00. Eintritt 4€. Joe's Bar, Schönhauser Allee 157, Prenzlauer Berg.

Samstag März 26. - Wohnzimmer Konzert: Chloe Charles (CAN) & Aly Tadros (USA) plus poet to be announced

Sofa Salon is excited to host these two amazing alternative acoustic songwriters during their European tour. Toronto native Chloe Charles has been likened to Cat Power and Joni Mitchell and is possessed of a dramatic dark-honey voice. Austin-based Aly Tadros has the sass of Fiona Apple and the swing of a Ricky Lee Jones. Both ladies offer a distinctive and accomplished point-of-view.

Donnerstag März 31. - Joe's Bar Showcase: Biddy Connor (AUS) with Ned Collette (AUS) & Emaline Delapaix (AUS) plus poet to be announced

Talented Australian film composer, viola player and songwriter Biddy Connor comes to Berlin for a one-off performance of her atmospheric music featuring respected songwriter Ned Collette (AUS). Also featured is the spun sugar ambient folk-pop of Emaline Delapaix (AUS), now based in rural Germany.

Doors at 21:00. Eintritt 4€. Joe's Bar, Schönhauser Allee 157, Prenzlauer Berg.

Samstag April 23. - Wohnzimmer Konzert: Christina Maria (CH/CAN) and Jimmy Tait (AUS) plus poet to be announced

Christina Maria did a Sofa Salon in July 2010. She was mesmerising and garnered requests for an encore. She brings her lithe acoustic folk pop back to the Salon alongside emerging Australian act Jimmy Tait, the melancholic and spacious sound of prolific Melbourne songwriter Sara Retallick and this gun band.

Samstag Oktober 15. - Wohnzimmer Konzert: Wooden Peak (DE) + Martin Lau & Teleskop (DE)

I heard Wooden Peak's wonderful electronic-acoustic folk at Fusion 2010 and asked them to play a Sofa Salon. They will also perform for us their collaboration with poet Martin Lau, who has just released his first cycle of poems on Periplaneta, with Wooden Peak setting Martin's words to music.
