Join professional designer Jessica Hall of Harmony Harvest Farm in our Orchard Room on April 2nd at 2 PM for a fun-filled afternoon! You will be creating a beautiful arrangement with springtime blooms while sipping on Orchard Blush cider.

Live Music in the Orchard: Uncle Pen
Live Music in the Orchard: Uncle Pen Enjoy live music by Alex Caton.

 

Alex made her home and spread her roots in Gordonsville, Virginia when she came to the University of Virginia to pursue a Doctorate in Anthropology. Her studies may have brought her to the Commonwealth, but it was the countryside and strong musical community that kept her here. 

 

Having lived, taught, and performed in other centers for traditional music, including Upstate New York and Asheville, NC, Alex felt that the heartbeat of old-time or Appalachian music (a direct descendent of Irish music which was an early passion of Alex’s) pulsed stronger in the foothills of Virginia than anywhere else. Within the first year of arriving in central Virginia, Alex was an integral member of the traditional music community and also an ambassador and liaison between the worlds of Irish and Old-Time music.
