This concert will be held outside!
From the Chris Henry Website:
His band is called Chris Henry and Hardcore Grass, and the reason is because of the intensity with which they perform his music. “Years ago, Bill Monroe told Frank Wakefield, who had, at the time, gotten the closest to copying Bill’s mandolin style, something to the effect of, “That’s real good, now get your own style but keep that hardcore grass in there.” It’s best described as a kind of “white-knuckle, bite the cap off the coke bottle grit. Henry says, “I started the band in Nashville to play downtown and at the time we were mostly doing favorite bluegrass standards from the 40’s-70’s, but now we branch out and do a lot of different styles. There’s some blues, folk, Americana, country, Gospel and even some mixed-meter more world-music sounding contemporary textures that we sometimes do, like on “The Water Song”, the title cut of our last band album. A lot of what I’ve been gravitating towards these days is a little mellower and more peaceful. That has come from a lot of the time I have spent in Peru studying the traditional medicine of the plants, trees, and vines. The way that music intertwines with that study is beautiful. So much wisdom from the natural world.”
Note: Advanced ticket purchase is always recommended because: 1) It helps our food vendor anticipate food amounts and 2) If the concert is held indoors, seating is limited (we’d hate to turn you away at the door). All tickets purchased in advanced are held at Will Call under the name of the purchaser. Online Ticket Purchase Available until Noon Day of Concert (after 12 pm same day please call the winery for ticket availability) – See Below to Purchase Tickets!
