Join us for an enchanting evening on the historic grounds of Reynolds Homestead for a three course dinner that will be locally sourced and prepared. Each course will be paired with a locally crafted beer. Attendees will be serenaded by singer/songwriting duo COULDN’T BE HAPPIERS, a folk-country-rock duo out of Winston Salem. The couple has what fans call “a contagious energy” born of audience interaction and on-stage (mostly) playful bickering with one another.

Tickets: $35 includes dinner, beer pairing, and live music.

SATURDAY:
Reynolds Homestead

Sustainability Workshops 10am-3pm [visit website to learn more!]

Local Food, Wine, and Beer Festival 4pm-10pm

Hosting three bands, food vendors, local wineries, and breweries.

Music for Saturday kicks off with MORGAN WADE & THE STEPBROTHERS. Morgan Wade exploded onto the Southwest Virginia music scene two years ago playing a blend of country, folk and high-energy Americana and jamming with a rotating group of musicians. Bassist Ed McGee and mandolin player Joe Link have been with Morgan from the beginning and added veteran rockers Drew Sprinkle on guitar and Bengy Wagner on drums.

Next up we’ll host PROSPERITY’S FOLLY a band that was built on creative songwriting harmonizes blues, outlaw, and southern rock themes to evoke imagery spanning the bands Southern Appalachian and Western roots.

Closing out the evening will be AJ GHENT and His Singing Guitar as they construct a musical sound that can be heard howling from the church to the streets to the clubs. His style can be defined as fresh, nostalgic, electrifying and roots rock, — fusing blues, funk, rock, and pop, mashing it into a genre he likes to call, NEO BLUES.

Additional Info about the event:

Food vendors will be serving up delicious meals made with local ingredients, select local artisans will be showcasing their wares, and enjoy an evening of live music!

Wineries from around the region will be providing tastings and purchases for the event. Wineries include Stanburn Winery and Villa Appalaccia.
