PRINCETON – The folk duo Neptune’s Car will kick off the Princeton Coffeehouse season at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The coffeehouse is at Open Prairie United Church of Christ, 25 E. Marion St. in Princeton. Doors will open at 7 p.m.
Holly Hanson and Steve Hayes, the New England-based musical partners who perform as Neptune’s Car, describe their style as original, contemporary folk music.
At the beginning of this year, they released their third album, “The 45th Parallel.” By February, it was the No. 2 album on a folk chart, according to a news release.
Hanson and Hayes have performed together since 2006. In late July, the Folk Alliance Region Midwest, an organization whose mission is to engage and empower the folk music community, selected Neptune’s Car for an official showcase at its October conference in Iowa City.
Neptune’s Car is the name of an 1850s clipper ship. You can find out the full story of why the performers chose that name by coming to the show.
Admission costs $15 at the door. Fair trade coffee, tea and homemade desserts will be available.
The coffeehouse offers traditional and modern folk, blues and bluegrass music monthly from August to May.
