Greg and Michelle and a Burrito, click for larger The Rosendale Cafe offers some of the best vegetarian food and performing artists in the Hudson Valley, serving weekly entrees, assorted salads, exciting homemade desserts, organic coffees, three tap micro brews, and wine. Weekend concerts feature both local and international musicians: singer-songwriters, jazz, blues, world, and experimental; and every other Tuesday we host Singer-Songwriter Tuesdays, a showcase of local musicians. Enjoy delicious, whole vegetarian cooking and hear great music in an intimate, smoke free restaurant environment.

Recognized by Chronogram Magazine as Best Vegetarian Restaurant and Best Performance Space, we also received a four star rating for food and value in the Poughkeepsie Journal.

After a concert by The Hunger Mountain Boys, enthusiastic audience member Ammuse wrote "... The Rosendale Cafe holds a special place in my heart, being among one of my favorite intimate music venues in not only my surrounding area, but in NY State itself."  Click here to see the full review, including some great photos.

Tomorrow's Event at the Cafe:
Tom Pacheco
Saturday, December 20 at 8:00pm  Cost: $15.00   iCal +Google

Tom PachecoA Peace Concert

No one can advance the cause of peace and justice through songwriting like Tom, who once again returns to the Cafe for a night of masterful folk artistry. This is the voice you need to hear in this season of dreidls and angels.

Brian Hollander will be accompanying Tom, playing Dobro. Bruce Milner on Keyboard.

"Whilst Mr. Springsteen draws on the inspiration of Guthrie, Seeger, etc.; Pacheco is the real thing, cut from the same cloth as those guys, with the same dust on his boots, and the same song in his heart." --Steve Morris, NetRhythms.co.uk

The Duke Robillard Jazz Trio

The Duke Robillard Jazz TrioHere's a quick quiz: What do Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Jay McShann, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Hammond, the late Jimmy Witherspoon, Dr. John, Maria Muldaur, Roomful of Blues, and the Canadian band The Rockin' Highliners all have in common? Answer: Duke Robillard.

Guitarist, bandleader, songwriter, singer, producer, session musician... and a one-man cheering section for the blues, in all its forms and permutations. And every one of those names has shared recording studio space or stage time with a man who is a legend in the blues community.

The Blues Music Awards (formerly W.C. Handy Awards) have named Duke Robillard "Best Blues Guitarist" four years out of five (2000, 2001, 2003, 2004), making him the second most honored guitarist for that award! He was also nominated in that category in 2005, 2007. and again in 2008.

Reviews for his album "Wobble Walk'n" are as follows...

"Music that confirms Robillard's place among the great guitarists operating today." --Dan Bilawsky, AllAboutJazz.com

"Duke Robillard's finest release in over a decade, and an absolute must for the collector!" --Brent Black, Critical Jazz

"One drop dead gorgeous after-hours guitar jazz outing that's not to be missed." --Chris Spector, Editor and Publisher of Midwest Record
