Patchouli to Perform
At UW-Eau Claire

 MAILED:  Feb. 11, 2004

EAU CLAIRE — Patchouli will present three free concerts at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Feb. 12-14. The acoustic duo will begin its shows at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday in The Cabin, Davies Center.

Bruce Stanton and Julie Reitz recorded their first tape in 1993, in a church in Chicago. With Bruce on acoustic guitar and Julie on a five-gallon pail, they discovered their desire to create music together out of anything and everything. Since those humble beginnings, Patchouli has logged thousands of miles, played hundreds of shows, made TV appearances and been featured on world and folk radio programs across the country. Reitz’s passionate and playful vocals and musical versatility combine with Stanton’s fluid guitar improvisations, making their live performances an engaging, diverse and organic musical experience.

The show is open to all ages. Pop, domestic and imported beer, wine coolers and popcorn will be sold; proof of age is required for alcohol purchases.

The Cabin program is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
