Scottsville, Virginia boasts its very own brewery, James River Brewing Company, where you can sample a bevvy or two crafted by brewmaster Kelby Barnhill. Sip the subtle notes of the Vanilla Porter, the depth of the 1865 Smoked Ale, the English mild River Walker, and the English bitter River Runner. If you’re looking for the perfect opportunity to visit this small microbrewery with its unique libations, then mark your calendars for an upcoming James River Brewing Company Music Festial!
On May 17, 2014, from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., a number of local musicians will be bringing their talents to James River Brewing Company’s Beer Garden for a springtime music festival:
The Larry Keel Experience: This band is a “Virginia-based alternative bluegrass ensemble headed by flatpicking guitar champion.”
Those Manic Seas: These musicians play a combination of post-rock and shoegaze, and while two of their band members are a standard drummer and a bass player, their “lead singer” is one-of-a-kind—a mannequin with a TV for a head.
Tara Mills: This singer/songwriter hails from Charlottesville and plays folk and roots music that is inspired by a rich bluegrass tradition.
Jimmy Stelling: This singer is not only a talented musician, but also a gifted craftsman as well. He makes some of the world’s finest banjos and knows how to play a lively tune on them!
Book your room at High Meadows Vineyard Inn, and get ready for an evening of beer tasting, live music, great food, and fun company.
