(Lewiston NY) Lewiston Council on the Arts (LCA) www.artcouncil.org and Just Buffalo Literary
Center (JBLC) www.justbuffalo.org will present the second season of the Lewiston Arts Cafe'. Hosted by Perry Nicholas and Maria Sebastian, Arts Cafe is a new series of programs that will feature some of the finest poets and musicians in WNY.


Poet, Lisa Wiley and musician Alan Whitney will perform on Tuesday, February 10 at 7:00 PM at the historic Lewiston Opera Hall, 732 Center St. Lewiston.


Poet, Lisa Wiley teaches English at Erie Community College, North Campus. Co-host of the Just Buffalo Literary Cafe', she is the author of Chamber Music (FinishingLine Press 2013). Her second collection, My Daughter Wears Her Evil Eye to School is forthcoming in 2015 (The Writer's Den). Her poetry has appeared in Rockhurst Review and Yale Journal for Humanities in Medicine among others.


Singer, songwriter, Alan Whitney mixes rock and roll, country, folk, R & B and a sharp sense of song to make his own brand of American music. His songs are tender, fun, poignant, exuberant, sensual and sometimes weird. His sweet, soaring voice is all at once innocent and streetwise. He has opened for legendary artists Janis Ian, Alison Krauss, Roger McGuinn of the Byrds and many more.


Arts Cafe' serves up an evening of of entertainment and intellectual stimulation in the intimate
1960's coffee house atmosphere of the historic Lewiston Opera Hall. Come on out for an evening of mind opening entertainment. The cost of admission is only $2.00 for the general public. FREE for LCA and JBLC members!
