Claire Hitchins
Claire Hitchins

Claire Hitchins has enchanted audiences all over the country with her sincere, soulful folk melodies since the release of her debut album, These Bodies, in fall 2016. Her homespun musical sensibility was fashioned among the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, formed as much by the deciduous forests and swimming holes of her home state as by the traditional songs of the American South. Claire’s nuanced voice glimmers among currents of guitar and banjo, illuminating the depth and clarity of her generous songwriting. 

Enjoy and afternoon of music and cider at Albemarle CiderWorks with Claire Hitchins. No cover charge, cider and light picnic fare available for purchase.  Pets allowed outside only and on a leash.

All music rain or shine.

2:30 pm to 4:30 pm

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.

LUA Project
LUA Project

Join us for cider and The Lua Project as they play a new style of music they like to call  "Mexilachian" music - a blend of original and traditional music from Mexico, Appalachia, and the Atlantic Basin.   It is a very distinct and original sound that is fun, danceable and though unique, it's familiar and easily embraced by multiple cultures.

Cider and snacks available for purchase, or bring a picnic.  No outside alcohol.  All music rain or shine in the tasting room or on the patio.  Leashed pets outside only.

2:30 pm to 4:30 pm
