Friday Music: Mountain Ride

Big Cork Vineyards

Mountain Ride was forged in the Great Valley of south-central Pennsylvania, for the simple need to play bluegrass. For these five friends, bluegrass is a necessity. Hailing from the new generation of bluegrassers, they tend to bring a unique flair to the traditional, and a progressive twist to the original. Mountain Ride is composed of Eric Avey (guitar and vocals), Scott Matlock (fiddle and vocals), Corey Woodcock (banjo), Chance Hurley (mandolin), and Kate Avey (bass and vocals). With years of experience under their straps and strings, they have found something new, something that can only be described as Mountain Ride. Join us from 6:00- 9:00 pm for a fun evening. Food truck this evening is Holy Crepes.

Sunday Music: Brothers Down

Big Cork Vineyards

music, vineyards

Brother Down’s special breed of “Americana jam” began as a way for singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jason Turner and his twin brother and lead guitarist Jamie Turner to continue writing music and performing after years of playing more “electrified”. By transforming their blues/rock background into an acoustic duo and adding rhythmic guitar breaks in a groove-based psychedelia, they threw in a little alt country on top and created a style all of their own. Percussionist Jason Darr puts the icing on the cake and the results are music to the jam band lover’s ear.
