Curtis Prince at Albemarle CiderWorks
Curtis Prince at Albemarle CiderWorks

Join Curtis Prince in the Orchard Room for an afternoon of blues-infused rock and alt-country.

Curtis Prince is genuine; so is his music. His songs are legitimate confessions straight from his larger-than-life heart. The reason for this is that these songs were a long time coming; a result of observing the people and places that endlessly streamed in and out of his life. In short, the songs themselves have just as much of a story behind them as they do within.

His vocals and lyrics combine the storytelling and gravelly gravitas of artists like Slaid Cleaves and Ryan Bingham. His musicianship is well-honed, and reflects his Austin influences. Curtis Prince is a solo act worth sitting down and soaking in.

Cider and light picnic fare available for purchase. All music rain or shine. No cover charge, non-alcohoic beverages available.

3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Cider Sunsets wraps up with the soulful sounds of Erin & The Wildfire!

Rock, blues, folk, and soul had a baby and they named it Erin. She collected three of her most talented friends in 2012 and dubbed them The Wildfire, in reference to the fiery quality of their groove. Erin & The Wildfire is comprised of Erin Lunsford (vocals, acoustic guitar), Ryan Lipps (guitar), Matt Wood (bass), and Nick Quillen (drums). Erin is an award winning vocalist (1st place Winner of Charlottesville’s Paramount Idol 2013) and an award winning songwriter (1st place Winner in the 11th Annual Rapunzel’s Songwriting Contest) with the song “Best I’ve Ever Been.” 

Erin & The Wildfire has been described as a “local treasure” and their presence continues to grow throughout Central Virginia and up and down the east coast.  The combination of Lunsford’s soulful and striking vocals with the Wildfire’s feverish intensity will start a flame in the heart of any listener.

Ticket price is $10 per person, and includes a glass of cider.

Seasoned Food Truck will be dishing out delicious Southern fare on-site. Bring a friend, bring a thirst, bring your dancing shoes!

At the age of 13 he formed a band called The Wave. The young band’s success landed them at major festivals like Floydfest where the group took the Main Stage in 2011. The Wave recorded two full albums and one EP worth of Willie’s original rock songs.
