Lemon Squeezy

June 29, 2019

7:30 P.M. - Rain Or Shine

Lemon Squeezy was founded on a dark and snowy night in the beginning of February 2010. Since then, the quartet has developed a crisp and delightful sound throughout a big variety of songs, ranging from Swedish men’s choir to Elvis Presley.  The quartet grew out of the rich soil of Swedish choir tradition. Throughout grade school, all four members attended Adolf Fredrik’s School of Music, Sweden’s most renowned choir school. Afterwards, they all made the natural transition into Stockholm Music Gymnasium, and today all four are members of Zero8, Sweden’s most prominent male barbershop chorus.  In the summer of 2012, Lemon Squeezy won the Collegiate World Championship in Barbershop. Two years later, in Las Vegas, they achieved 5th place in the open International Competition, moving on to 4th in 2015 and an honourable silver medal in 2016. Now they are on the road to pursue further goals and good times together!

Cari Ray & The Shaky Legs

July 5th, 2019

7:30 P.M. - Rain Or Shine

Cari Ray is an award-winning songwriter and storyteller whose songs manifest in a way that can transport you to a back alley juke joint around the early part of the last century. Cari’s influences as a writer and performer are clear and present in her original material, spanning a wide range of early American music… a helping of acoustic blues, a little folk, a rasher of ragtime, and a slight flavor of old-time country. Her live show serves it up handily with quick wit, tasty fingerstyle guitar, and a huge voice. Add the powerful harmony vocals of percussionist and long-time collaborator, Dionne Ward, and you have Cari Ray & The Shaky Legs. With a unique blend of heart and grit, this power duo will have your heart breaking one minute and your hips shaking the next…all while wondering where they’re hiding the rest of band.

Thunderwüde

July 6th & 7th, 2019

7:30 P.M. - Rain Or Shine

Thunderwüde is a Chelsea Michigan based bluegrass trio fronted by singer/songwriter Jason Dennie. His masterfully crafted songs have become staples of the Thunderwüde experience as he draws from his 20 plus years as a professional musician. The energetic Wesley Fritzemeier is the perfect counterpart to Dennie as he dazzles with his incredible prowess on both the mandolin and fiddle. The two musicians intertwine beautifully as seemingly effortless harmonies are brought to life both vocally and instrumentally. The glue between all of the beauty is Tommy Reifel on the upright bass. These three everyday working musicians have made this project a labor of love and patience and have been rewarded with a 4 year residency at their hometown brewery, and look forward to spreading the good wüde for as long as time allows them.

The Appleseed Collective

August 2nd & 3rd, 2019

7:30 P.M. - Rain Or Shine

The sounds of The Appleseed Collective are as diverse as the personalities that create them. Violinist/Mandolinist Brandon Worder-Smith grew up steeped in a rich rural Bluegrass and Irish fiddle culture. Driven to explore beyond the boundaries of tradition, he set off on foot to hitchhike around America searching for his musical kin. After a year and a half of wandering he stumbled across Guitarist Andrew Brown back in Ann Arbor MI, where the band now hangs their collective hats when not on the road. Downtown Andrew Brown, fast-talking vintage garb peddler and son of a Motown session musician had just returned from New Orleans with a piece of that dixieland sound. He gifted long-time friend and funk/rock drummer Vince Russo with a washboard, whose penchant for ripping percussion solos and untamed showmanship were only further enhanced, and the first incarnation of the band was born. Later the boys would join forces with bassist Eric O’Daly, whose passion for Indian Classical music and introspective yet fiery Irish nature would complete the Genre-Bending sound of The Appleseed Collective.

Lavender Moon Night Sky

August 4th

Join us at Lavender Hill Farm for star guidance and stories just before sunset for the best views of the Lavender Moon. It will sweep over the western horizon toward the thickest part of the Milky Way, while the star lovers appear overhead. We will set the stage for a terrific evening of storytelling and stars with star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams, in the sweet and comforting proximity of lavender fields.

August 4th is considered to be the moons most romantic time of the year. In the world of poets and story tellers, the Lavender Moon describes the waxing crescent sliver that follows a rare Black Moon (the second new moon in one calendar month). In the summer of 2019, a Lavender Moon will occur following the July 31st New Moon! In Chinese culture this is highlighted by the story of the star lovers Vega and Altair, who gaze longingly to one another across the mighty Milky Way river of stars.
