“Carl Tilchen has impressive credentials…shared the spotlight with Pete Seeger at the famous folk club The Village Gate, and at the legendary Newport Folk Music Festival.” Jim Harrington, Contra Costa Times, Bay Area News Group.
“Carl Tilchen, your music was so soothing, and mature. I wish more musicians could share their gift of music just for the appreciation sake like yourself. I have learned through my traditions that music connects your body to your soul….” SKC
“I am Sarabjit Kaur Cheema, Trustee of The New Haven Unified School District, and Candidate for The State Assembly of California. Carl Tilchen, Singer/Songwriter was a key support asset in my successful campaign to raise funds, and win election to the School Board. He will continue to support my election campaign for The State Assembly. He composed a unique, personal song, and performed a complete program of inspiring, motivating music at my campaign launch. I recommend his creative services for any political campaign/fundraising event.” Sarabjit Kaur Cheema.
“Carl Tilchen performed at Paddy’s Coffee House on Saturday August 14th, 2010. Our Patrons enjoyed his music and his repertoire. Perfect music for a Saturday morning at our coffee house, enjoyed by one, and all.”

“Carl commanded the audience over the constant whir of blenders in the background at Paddy’s Coffee House with the ease of an old pro. His energetic singing style is firmly rooted in the rousing folk traditions of his contemporaries, Bob Dylan and Arlo Guthrie, to name a few. He can soothe on a wistful standard such as Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World.” Or thoroughly entertain with his clever little ditties culled from newspaper articles. Either way, you can’t really remain a casual listener when Carl Tilchen plays; he’ll have you clapping along in no time.”
