Upcoming Events:

To welcome summer, we are offering live music each Sunday afternoon from 3:00-5:00  Here’s the schedule:

Owl’s Eye is closed to the public the week of July 4th, but life in the vineyard goes on.  We will re-open at noon on Thursday, July 9th.  Have a safe and happy holiday!

Summer Sunday music from 3-5 outside/inside (depends on the weather).  Here is the July line-up.

July 12:  Dale Brittain (guitar and vocals)     Dale is a Cleveland County native and has picked up his guitar again after retiring from ATT, and played to a very appreciative audience here in May. He plays and sings a wide variety of styles of music all of which go well with a glass of wine on a Sunday afternoon.

July 19:  David Parker (guitar)  By day, David is a Professor of English at Gardner-Webb and musician in his off time.  David’s guitar has always had a looper pedal, and now he as added TRIO, which provides some bass and percussion–amazing tech.  You can preview at davidparker.bandcamp.com.

July 26:  Accoustic Gazz  (guitars and vocals)  Jim Samsung and Don Hardin, two old friends who have shared their musical talents in their church and with the Jazz Era Revue, have teamed up to form this duo with a playlist of 170 songs, as of this writing–folk, country, show music, soft rock, you name it.  This will be their first performance a duo at Owl’s Eye, but both were part of the Jazz Era Revue productions  at Gardner-Webb and at Owl’s Eye in 2013 and 2014.
