Live Music:

Danny Barnes

Growing up in rural Texas, Barnes learned firsthand what it took for working class men and women to survive. The son of a coal miner-turned-tractor salesman, he spent much of his childhood around farmers and tradesmen, which led to a natural affinity for the kind of earthy, organic music that reflected their stories. Already a prodigious banjo and guitar player by his teenage years, Barnes left home to study audio production at the University of Texas in the early ’80s, and it was there in Austin that he launched the Bad Livers, a groundbreaking trio with a wildly eclectic sound that mixed bluegrass, punk, jazz, and metal. Hailed by Rolling Stone for their “striking blend of virtuoso flash and poignant simplicity,” the group would release seven studio albums during their decade-long run, earning praise everywhere from The Washington Post to The Times of London and carving out a path for future string band genre- benders like The Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine Show along the way.

When the Bad Livers dissolved in 2000, Barnes embarked on a new chapter, touring and recording under his own name and collaborating with a wide range of prominent songwriters including Bela Fleck, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Dave Matthews Band, and members of the Butthole Surfers, Dead Kennedys and Ministry among others. As a solo artist, he released more than a dozen critically acclaimed record, took home the prestigious Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo, and helped redefine the instrument’s possibilities with an innovative approach he dubbed “folktronics.”

Matt Sircely

Matt Sircely is a songwriter and instrumentalist whose musical interests span the worlds of folk and fiddle music, classic blues and country, vintage swing and bluegrass, and music from around the world. His instrumental work blends traditional and new approaches to mandolin, guitar, and four-string tenor guitar.

Samara Jade

Samara Jade is a modern folk troubadour and multi-instrumental musical seamstress who stitches together a unique tapestry of sounds from diverse musical strands, borrowing flavors folk, jazz, soul, blues, and Appalachian. nique genre-bending tapestry of sounds and stories into a sound that some have called “Philosopholk.

STRINGOLOGY

STRINGOLOGY performs songs from the Hot Jazz repertoire of the 1920’s, from “The Great American Songbook” of the 1930’s and ’40’s, and melodies from the guitar legend Django Reinhardt. Eric Bogart’s guitar work draws heavily on the jazz manouche vocabulary, painting artistic flourishes above “rock-solid rhythm back-up” of Terianne Stratton on ukulele and Tracy Grisman on bass. STRINGOLOGY is aptly name - both together and as individuals their performance reflect enthusiasm for the “study of strings”.

Delicious Food!

Batch Brothers - Taste the Love!!!

Apple pressing and fresh hot apple cider

We have 3 classic old school cider presses showing up and 900 lbs of fruit to press! Lend a hand and enjoy some hot apple cider! (we are not able to serve cold cider or give away fresh cider due to health department regulations). The majority of the cider pressed will be taken home by our friends to make some yummy home-brew cider!

Cider tasting with Eaglemount Wine & Cider

For over two decades, Eaglemount Winery | Cidery has been producing hard ciders and meads, sourced from heirloom apple trees in our homestead orchard planted in 1883 and from other homestead orchards on the Olympic Peninsula. Our success in cider making led us to try our hand at wine making, and the rest is history. Over time, our ciders and wines have been featured in newspaper and magazines articles and we’ve received numerous awards.
