Join Mojo Pie, also known as local songwriters Susan Munson and Frank Bechter, for an afternoon of live and local music.

MoJoPie was created when Susan Munson invited Frank Bechter to a songwriters workshop, and they've been bringing harmonies to wineries, restaurants and events in Central Virginia ever since. Happy to be returning to Albemarle Ciderworks, both have been featured artists in Charlottesville's First Night Virginia and Jason Burke's Six-Pack Songwriter Series, and they make up 2/3 of the acoustic trio Oh Wow Boy. Susan also rocks many a stage with Alligator, Jeebus, and Mama Tried, as does Frank with Das Homage, The Good Guys, and Her Checkered Past.

Gallatin Canyon @ Albemarle CiderWorks
Gallatin Canyon @ Albemarle CiderWorks

Join the guys of Gallatin Canyon for an afternoon of live music at Albemarle CiderWorks!

Despite the Montana namesake, Gallatin Canyon is a Charlottesville, Virginia-based bluegrass band. Influenced by dozens of great artists, both contemporary and from the past, the band showcases masterful instrumentation, air-tight arrangements and soaring vocal harmonics. And if traditional bluegrass isn’t your cup of bourbon, don’t worry — you’re likely to hear a few familiar, creatively-arranged classic rock and country covers too. From Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs, to the Beatles and the Avett Brothers, at any given show, you’ll hear an eclectic mix, crossing multiple musical genres.

2:30-4:30 pm, rain or shine.  Cider and light fare available for purchase.

Sample their music here.

2:30 pm to 4:30 pm
