Music in the Orchard: The Pollocks
Music in the Orchard: The Pollocks

The Pollocks are led by Jason Pollock, former guitarist and songwriter for Seven Mary Three. In the mid 1990s, Jason penned such hits as "Cumbersome" and "Water's Edge", sold a few million albums, and toured extensively. His new band was formed in 2014, when a friend told him that he needed to get back into the game, and present to the public his catalog of songs that had been piling up. The music can best be described as American rock, with the right amount of soul: The Rolling Stones meets Jefferson Airplane. There's some Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, The Beatles and Neil Young thrown in for good measure. The psychedelic South, in three part harmony...

Music in the Orchard: LUA Project
Music in the Orchard: 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.
