What a weekend this last weekend of September turned out to be! Clyde and I had a great time visiting with so many return visitors, and new guests to Peaceful Bend. Thank you so much to everyone who made the weekend a great one.
Saturday afternoon featured Brian Curran on the guitar and singing his special blend of blues, folk, and bluegrass.
Everyone enjoyed listening to him play and kindly posed for photographs for me!
These folks may seem familiar to you – I think they have come to just about all the music we have hosted this year!
Clyde’s brother, Steve, has been visiting for the last two weeks. The two brothers spent Steve’s last afternoon at Peaceful Bend listening to the music, drinking wine, and laughing. It was definitely a special afternoon for Clyde.
On Sunday we hosted The Accomplices, all the way up from Savannah Georgia. The fiddle player, Colleen is from St. Louis and has played here at Peaceful Bend several times in the past. We were happy to welcome her back again.
This picture of a few of the guests on Sunday reminds me of a funny story. Connie was wiping down tables in the lower wine garden when that red Baptist church van (in the background) pulled up to the stage area. Connie thought ‘boy, are these folks lost!’ when she saw it. As it turned out, that is the van that The Accomplices use to travel!
Needless to say, Connie had a good laugh over it. Colleen told us that the band doesn’t get hassled near as much with this van than some of their other vehicles!
Unfortunately, the weather gods weren’t with us on Sunday, as some light rain came in after the first break. But, as you can see, people just brought out the umbrellas and kept on enjoying the music.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a winery weekend without a menagerie of dogs around! Libby Loo had fun listening to Brian play on Saturday.
I missed this pup’s name, but she certainly worked hard at the tricks on Sunday. Wine barrel sitting takes some patience!
And little Fluffy came in both Saturday and Sunday to enjoy the music. I think I had as much fun this weekend as she has fur! 🙂
Thank you again to everyone who came out to see us this weekend. And a huge thanks to Brian Curran and to The Accomplices for providing such wonderful entertainment!
If you missed this weekend, don’t worry – we have lots of upcoming events this fall that you can mark your calendar to attend. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
