Soup & Sing – Potluck Dinner and Jam Session @ Stonefield Cellars Winery
Jan 31 @ 6:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Soup-and-Sing-120x120-120x120Reservations for Soup and Sing are Required – Please call 336-644-9908.

This is a combination pot-luck dinner, jam session, and folk gathering for local musicians/singers that harkens back to a time when there were no radios or TVs and music was what we made together, face to face, an essential part of our soul as necessary as the food that nourished our bodies.   If you are not a musician but are a friend or family member of a musician or are a Friend of Stonefield Cellars that loves wine and music, you are welcome to come.   We appreciate your support of local music and local wine!  (Wine sales provide the financial support to make this event possible.) 

Large Parties/Groups Policy:  Due to our policy to preserve the intimacy of the gathering and the need to stay within our capacity limit, Soup & Sing is not an event for large private parties or groups (more than 8 people in a single party/group).   We do however rent our barrel room for private parties and we can provide you with contact info re: bands for hire.   We also hold barrel room concerts and outdoor music events at the winery during which we can provide concert/festival seating for large groups.   

 If you are interested in attending, RSVP Natalie Wurz at 644-9908 or email nwurz@stonefieldcellars.com

Barrel Room Concert – Chambless and Muse @ Stonefield Cellars Winery
Feb 7 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Jil Chambless & Scooter Muse will perform in our intimate concert space, the StoneJilChamblessScooterMusefield Cellars Barrel Room.   Jil has graced our stage several times and we are so pleased to have her back, this time with Scooter Muse!  Please join us for a great show.

A bit of info on Jil and Scooter:
Two current members of the band Henri’s Notions, the longest performing Celtic band in the Southeastern United States (more than 30 years!), Jil and Scooter have also performed frequently in a trio with Scottish singer Ed Miller at many festivals throughout the US and Scotland. For many years Jil and Scooter have been fortunate to work alongside many of the finest artists in Celtic Music, resulting in many spontaneous collaborations.
First introduced to Celtic music when she joined Henri’s Notions in 1989, Jil Chambless has since become one of the finest singers and flute players on the Celtic circuit. Jil’s first solo CD, The Ladies Go Dancing (2009), was produced by the legendary Brian McNeill. Brian has stated that Jil is “…truly a great singer!” Jil brings to any audience a wonderful listening experience from haunting ballads to upbeat songs with a smooth delivery that never fails to bring both smiles and tears in each and every performance!
Although Scooter Muse has his roots in Bluegrass and is an award-winning 5-string banjo player, in the late 1980s he moved into the world of Celtic guitar and then founded the band Full Moon Ensemble, per-forming for 8 years across the US and in Scotland before joining Henri’s Notions in 2003. Scooter’s first solo recording of original guitar instrumentals, Saddell Abbey (2005), was purchased by the Scottish Tourist Board in Kintyre. The Saddell Abbey Trust of Scotland calls the recording, “…a haunting and beautiful piece of music.”
In 2010, Jil and Scooter began performing as a duo to promote their individual solo projects, playing a variety of venues from small house concerts to major Celtic festivals. Since then they have released two CDs as a duo, The Laverock Sang (2011) and Passing Tales & Glories (2014).
