Folk record release party, performance set


The Book Garden, 28 Bridge St., Frenchtown, N.J., welcomes New York City-based songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist Dan Rauchwerk from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12.

A founding member of the internationally touring folk band, the Lords of Liechtenstein, Rauchwerk will perform at a record release party for his debut album, “We Are More Than What We Leave Behind.”

The record’s subject matter was inspired by Rauchwerk’s life long passion for books, and he seeks to educate as he entertains.

Mixing historical references into love songs and weaving eras into each other, Rauchwerk introduces characters who never met in order to see what happens when they interact. This curiosity winds its way through the music and listeners “feels as if they are reading stories in an old library on the New England shore.”

Refreshments will be served. For information, call 908-996-2022 or email
