Trinity, NC - Zimmerman Vineyards celebrates the annual rite of grapevines in bloom! Flowering begins with small clusters that appear within weeks of bud break. The future grape clusters blossom mid-May releasing a subtle fragrance . . . the essence of wine to be. Join us as we celebrate the beauty and excitement of bloomin' wine!
12:00-2:30: Lauren Light ~ Blues/Pop/Rock
When you see this bubbly personality and energized smile you would never guess that underneath it all is a voice with such a soulful pop edge. Most compare Lauren Light's style to a mixture of Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Fiona Apple all stirred together. She is making a huge splash into the music scene from being named 2012 Best Rock Female in the Carolina Music Awards, winning Kernersville Idol, getting runner up for "Go Triads" Best New Act, and runner up for 2012 Best Vocalist in "Yes Weekly."
3:00-5:30: Back Porch Orchestra ~ Acoustic Folk
Back Porch Orchestra is a project that evolved out of a small group of musicians' love for roots music. North Carolina is a state that is steeped in rich musical heritage and each member of Back Porch Orchestra, though having played a wide variety of styles, has a deep love for the folky, grassy, acoustic music of the South. Chris and Bonnie Reed after years of gathering a following playing an eclectic mix of covers that range from Darrell Scott to Michael Jackson have set out to create a musical project as unique as their extensive musical palette. Complete with a host of original songs and the extra creative fuel of drummer Frankie Hoggard and guitarist Jeremy Brady, Back Porch Orchestra is ready to use their native sound that simultaneously recalls the past and embraces the present, to connect to audiences everywhere!
6:00-8:30: The Storytellers Band ~ Smooth Jazz
Based in the Triad of NC, specifically Greensboro, Storytellers formed in the spring of 2009. Melding components of rock, blues, gospel, R&B and Latin flavors to forge a new and exciting genre of contemporary jazz, the Storytellers music has broad appeal. Come share with us a fresh, unique and uplifting sound. "Your story...Our music...One sound"
