Sue Harlow is an Americana-Folk Singer/Songwriter whose haunting vocals delve into the depths of what makes people real...emotions, losses, loves, and hopes. Sue's songs draw on the particular part of the Americana genre that tells stories of how it really is, and really was, and touches on the places in people's lives that they can relate to.

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
