December 8, Beseme Bistro, 7 to 8:30 p.m
Duets is the theme for an evening of incredible music, food and unique beer Tuesday, December 8 at Béseme Bistro in Lewes where top jazz & blues singer/songwriter Billie Stevens-Carlins, country music star Randy Lee Ashcraft, and local favorites Stewart Vining & Amy Felker, otherwise known as Charity Case, will headline the December “Night of Songs and Stories” sponsored by the Rehoboth Beach Writers' Guild Songwriting Series.
This is not a typical night of ‘background” music. MC Terry Plowman, publisher of Delaware Beach Life magazine and a musician in his own right, will ply the musicians with questions—many from the audience—about their artistry. Everything from “what cover song do you play in a completely different style from the original recording?” to “what was the most difficult song you ever wrote and why?” are just a few of the questions the singer/songwriters will take on. Musicians take turns responding by playing the song (and telling the story) that best answers each question.
The evening kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a ‘duet’ beer tasting sponsored by Béseme and 16 Mile Brewery, a newly launched microbrewery in Georgetown, DE, dedicated to bringing simple yet distinctive ales to Delaware. Complimentary tastings of Amber Sun Ale, a traditional amber ale with an initial roasty flavor followed by a sweeter finish, and Old Court Ale, an American pale ale that is a lighter bodied brew with a citrusy hop aroma and caramel finish will be offered by brewery owners Brett McCrea and Chad Campbell. Following the tastings, their ales will be featured on the menu throughout the evening, And, in keeping with the duets theme, Béseme will feature a special small bites pairing menu throughout the night in addition to the bistro’s regular menu.
