Our very first event in our new Bower After Hours program.. Join us at Bower for an evening of painting, wine and creative food on February 20th, 2024!

While one partner paints the "Lovebirds" with step by step guidance from instructors Lori Stetson and Aric Bryant.. The other will be assembling gourmet snacks to keep their artist fueled and inspired! For an extra challenge, partners may switch places midway through the evening if they dare!  

Invite your friends, family, mom, sweetheart, or just take the class solo and have a fun nip sipping and painting!

Tickets: $25 each

Join us for Root 2 Music on  Saturday, April 9th!

Root 2 Music features fiddle, guitar, harmony vocals, percussion plus additional miscellaneous instruments. David Frank and Nancy Reid began Root 2 Music over 15 years ago. Nancy’s sister, Mary Beth Young Coffee, of the successful Celtic group “Beggar’s Circus”, sometimes plays in Root 2 Music. The group's many musical friends may also join in. Root 2 Music has won recognition at the Appalachian String Band Festival (Clifftop) and at the International Blues Challenge (Beale Street, Memphis) and is well known along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia for fun and music. In mathematical terms, Root 2 cannot be expressed as the ratio of two integers. Irrational? Yes! Nondeterministic? Perhaps, but always a pleasant surprise.    

Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 at the door
