MUSIC IN THE GARDENS WITH CHRIS STALCUP
This family friendly, all ages event, will take place outdoors in the gardens, where guests can enjoy a locally sourced Farm to Table dinner by Parsley's Catering, and a bar serving beer and wine. Table and chairs are provided first come first serve, along with lawn seating for those who wish to put down a blanket. Doors open at 6pm. Admission is $5 and children under 12 are free. In the event of rain it will be moved inside. Wheelchair accessible and free parking is available.
Passion meets purpose—it’s a good way to describe the essence of what’s driving Chris Stalcup and the Grange’s sophomore record Downhearted Fools. Theirs is a sound like a bonfire raging behind some small-town dirt-road shanty, of a band valiantly laying bare its soul while everyone dances wildly, moonshine drunk in the Southern night. Stalcup and his band channel Gram Parsons-influenced Stones tunes like “Honky-Tonk Women” and “Wild Horses,” occasionally coming off like a collaboration between Son Volt’s Jay Farrar and Drive-By Truckers’ Mike Cooley. The songs are deeply authentic and unapologetically Southern.
