Soup & Sing – Potluck Dinner and Jam Session @ Stonefield Cellars Winery
Sep 5 @ 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
