Barrel Room Concert – Robin Bullock @ Stonefield Cellars Winery
Nov 15 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

robinbullockwebJoin us for an intimate Barrel Room Concert by guitar and mandolin virtuoso ROBIN BULLOCK.   From Robin’s website: “Robin is a prolific composer and multi-instrumentalist, whose virtuosity on guitar, cittern and mandolin blends the ancient melodies of the Celtic lands and their vigorous Appalachian descendants into one powerful musical vision. The 17th-century harp tunes of legendary Irish bard Turlough O’Carolan, the spirited jigs and reels of rural Ireland, the haunting ballads of the southern Appalachians and evocative original compositions all find a musical common ground in Robin’s music, where lightning-fast finger work one moment is perfectly balanced with tender, quiet intimacy the next. A warm, friendly presence onstage, Robin effortlessly creates a magical world for the audience with his multi-instrumental wizardry, taking them on a journey to the heart and soul of Celtic and American traditions.”
“Celtic guitar god.” – Baltimore City Paper
“Breathtaking…brilliant technique, always in service of the music.” – Guitar Player
“A musician whose technical skill and stylistic expertise are second to none…a time-served folkie of the highest calibre.” – Classical Guitar (U.K.)
For more info about Robin and to hear excerpts of his recordings, visit www.robinbullock.com

Tickets are $15 ($13 for Wine Club Members) – Seating is limited, advance purchase recommended.  Call 336-644-9908 (winery) or 336-689-4071 (Natalie direct).

If you like VINTAGE ACOUSTIC JAZZ, you are going to love THE SWAMP NOTS

swampnots

The Swamp Nots blend vintage Jazz with American Old-Time string band music and Blues into a vintage fusion that gives life again to the lyric expressions of America’s Golden recording age. Their infectiously joyous and soulful sounds reveal a respectful synthesis of inspirations emanating from early Jazz, Ragtime, Old-Time string band traditions, Blues, and Ethnic world music. Members of this seasoned Greensboro NC band are Gary Silverstein on mandolin; Paul “Doc” Fribush on clarinet, steel guitar and harmonica; Ben Moore on vocals and bass fiddle; and Rich Hartness on finger-style guitar. Their passion and pure enjoyment of vintage acoustic music is contagious, as they share it’s magic with eager new audiences today. They have performed in various combinations across the globe, from Merlefest to Key West, California, Canada, the U.K and beyond. Their CD, “Swamp Nots” for $12 will be on sale at the event or you can order it from www.cdbaby.com and experience the past as new, all over again.

Barrel Room Concert – Mike Compton and Joe Newberry @ Stonefield Cellars Winery
Nov 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

ComNewbplow1_main_text (2)Join us for an intimate Barrel Room Concert with Mike Compton and Joe Newberry.

 

Mike Compton and Joe Newberry mine one of the more neglected segments of country music history, that period during the ’30′s and 40′s when brother duet music was transforming into bluegrass.  Both masters of the bedrock instruments of old time music, they collaborate with a vision that’s both modern and ageless.  These two traditional music veterans love to play together… and it shows.

Mandolin Magazine calls Mike Compton a player with “a worldwide reputation as one of the modern masters of bluegrass mandolin..one of the most recognizable and respected mandolin voices anywhere”.  He’s a Grammy and IBMA award-winning recording artist; soloist, duo and band performer; and as a passionate teacher, preservationist, and advocate for the mandolin as you’re ever likely to find.  The New York Times calls Compton a “new bluegrass instrumental hero”.  Compton and Newberry BW - Version 2

Joe Newberry is internationally known for his powerful banjo work.  He is a prizewinning guitarist, fiddler, and singer as well.  Joe’s songwriting is characterized by the same clean, elegant style as his banjo playing.  Musicians in the folk and bluegrass world often record his songs.  The Gibson Brothers’ version of his song “Singing As We Rise” featuring guest vocalist Ricky Skaggs, won the 2012 IBMA “Gospel Recorded Performance” award.  A frequent guest on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, Joe is a founder of the string band Big Medicine, and along with Mike, performs with Bruce Molsky and Rafe Stefanini as the Jumpsteady Boys, and also tours with legends Bill Hicks, Mike Craver, and Jim Watson.

Check out a great interview and some video on Mandolin Cafe – http://www.mandolincafe.com/news/publish/mandolins_001520.shtml

Tickets are $20($18 for Wine Club Members) – Seating is limited, advance purchase recommended.  Call 336-644-9908 (winery) or 336-689-4071 (Natalie direct).

Door opens at 7:00 pm.  Concert starts at 7:30 pm.
