Inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rich musical traditions tied to them, Tara Mills describes her music as, "original mountain americana;" an original blend of folk, bluegrass, and americana.

 

Writing and singing most of her life, it wasn't long before Tara picked up a guitar and taught herself how to express the melodies in her head through her songs and hauntingly beautiful lyrics. Influenced by bluegrass, old country, and traditional mountain folk, she creates an original sound that captures true human feeling and emotion.

 

Based out of Charlottesville, VA, Tara plays and writes in a couple of different musical projects.Reservations are encouraged if you'd like to secure a table inside by the fire or near an outdoor fire pit!

Live Music in the Orchard: Paulien Quartet
Live Music in the Orchard: Paulien Quartet

A Dutch veterinarian’s daughter who is building a following in the United States as a French chanteuse: That’s the story of Paulien. Growing up in a large and closely-knit Dutch family who spent long summer holidays in the French countryside, Paulien got an early exposure to the French culture and language, while back home mimicking contemporary singers like Françoise Hardy in front of a mirror with a vacuum hose. This led to her entry and ultimate win of a local singing contest in The Hague at the age of 12, heralded by the French ambassador to the Netherlands and offered a very modest recording deal for one EP at a local studio.

Occasionally performing with local musicians in her new hometown of Charlottesville, VA, Paulien ran into guitarist and composer Royce Campbell, who literarily fell in love with her voice. Within a year they recorded her self-titled album “Paulien” with all original songs written by Campbell.

Testing the market with the Royce Campbell project, Paulien started to include French repertoire in their gigs. With standing ovations for her interpretation of classics like Edith Piaf’s “La Vie en Rose” and Jacques Brel’s ”Ne Me Quitte Pas” (“If You Go Away”), the French project from which she had departed in 2001 is back on the table. Paulien’s style goes deep, straight ahead and free from vocal affectations…so, close your eyes, open your ears, and float on her rediscovered sound from Paris.
