Harvest Festival

12:00 pm until 09:30 pm at Soaring Wings Vineyard.

The end of our harvest means the end of our grueling 12 hour work days. So let's celebrate! We will have live music all day, food and drink specials and our annual grape stomping competition. Grape stomping is done in teams of two - one stomper and one "catcher". First to fill a pitcher wins! $10 per team to enter. Festival entry is $12.00 per person and includes a glass of wine or beer and souvenir wine glass! Pizza West will be out here from 3:00 to 8:00 to sell pizza, pasta and salads. We will also have a carnival style food truck selling snacks!

08:00 pm until 02:00 am at Duffy’s Tavern.

Seattle’s Garage Voice is putting the mood and message of Traditional Gospel music into Garage Rock. Foreboding choruses carry the legacy of Negro Spirituals, while guitar and organ interludes sway between Memphis Soul hooks and sampled Baroque passages.

Bruce Pearson switches between screeching Hammond organ solos and playing fuzz bass as a lead instrument. Tommy Panigot brings classical guitar techniques to his electric, often making it sound like two instruments, while Patrick Toney walks the line between rock and hip hop drumming. The music’s tension between the simple and complex reflects the trio’s tension as both refined songwriters and gritty performers.

Dan Tedesco

09:00 pm until 02:00 am at Bourbon Theater.

Dan Tedesco is the quintessential modern-day troubadour, narrating the American experience in song honestly and intimately, and with a big sound to boot. A solo artist, Tedesco’s stage show is framed by a minimalist production that finds him belting out folk-spiced rockers from behind both acoustic and electric guitars while foot-stomping percussion rounds out many of the arrangements—this is one solo artist who won’t seem out of place on a bill with rock bands. Interludes at the piano lighten the mood a little, but only a little, as the distorted Rhodes and Wurly sounds only contribute to Dan’s stage presence. Overall, you can expect the twang of John Prine, the attitude of Ike Reilly, the picking of Steve Goodman, and shades of Paul Simon. Similarities aside, however, Dan Tedesco is at one extremely talented and intensely original.

Rolling through 30 states and clocking in over 200 shows in 2012, Dan Tedesco has hardly had time to breathe. A true road-warrior, Tedesco is supporting his current release, “Tracks On Fire” (3/10/11). Produced and engineered by Duane Lundy (Jim James, Ben Sollee, These United States, Vandaveer) at Shangri-la Productions in Lexington, KY, “Tracks On Fire” is a raw, stripped-down batch of songs offering a both haunting and hopeful perspective on life in 2012 America.
