  • le petit café 28 Bellevue Avenue Newport, RI, 02840 United States (map)

with Michaela Anne

$20 plus tax (10% off wine and beer bought at NWC!)

Our continued effort to make a fun Italian ritual part of our routine here in Newport: Aperitivo is a happy hour of sorts with music and food and spritz.  We will provide a sample of an Italian Aperol Spritz, an ample buffet of antipasto, and great live music to groove to before heading out for your evening!

A self-described military kid, Michaela Anne has moved beyond naval bases and barracks to become one of the most-recognizable alt-country singer/songwriters in, of all places, Brooklyn, NY. A former unhappy jazz student with a passion for Patsy Cline and Otis Redding, Michaela Anne has claimed her place among singers who go their own way, looking to the timeless with little regard for passing trends and current zeitgeist.

Michaela embarked on a journey that has led her across the United States playing her original songs alone and with her band. That independent spirit has led to a woman unafraid to take her own path and share her heart – which is exactly what you get here. Like a true country classicist, it’s the stories that shine on Ease My Mind. Michaela’s words are so straightforward and full of honest truth that it’s almost shocking. The kind of honest truth that hurts oh-so-good in your ears, and strikes true straight to the heart of anyone who’s ever been torn up by love.
