Come enjoy some wine & live music by the best of our local songwriting talent! Kris Ferris will be your host and sound engineer for this performance melange, with FOUR singer/songwriters performing his or her songs in the round. They will also take you behind the scenes and learn what inspires their compositions, the stories behind the songs and the process of song writing through each songwriter’s eyes and experience. It is an interactive event and audience participation is encouraged (but please be respectful and don’t converse with your neighbor while the artists are speaking or singing).
Also note: If this is your first time visiting and you would like to do a tasting before the event, we suggest you come at least 30-45 minutes before to allow for a relaxed tasting experience. Tastings are conducted in our Tasting Room. You will be served there and when the door opens for the Songwriter Performance, you will then be seated in the Barrel Room. Tasting Fee is $10.00 for 7 wines and a signature wine glass.
The last ten years Josh Watson and his band, The Grand Ole Uproar, which the O’Henry magazine’s Billy Ingram describes as ” “…a rolling thunderous New Orleans flavored musical Po’Boy with country psychedelic seasoning…” have toured the southeast frequently, sharing the stage with bands such as Grammy-winning Texas Trio Los Lonely Boys and jam festival mainstay Zach Deputy. Josh also performs in a duo with BigDumbHick, Jeff Wall, where the setlists consist of originals, traditionals, gospel songs, and old country/honky tonk classics.
Chris has been writing and performing since his teen years. He has songs licensed with companies such as Crucial Music, Music Dealers, and Warner Chapel. Chris has played in local bands throughout the years; however, his heart has stayed true to the singer/songwriter genre. He is currently working on a solo acoustic album, hopefully to be released within the year.
