Celebrate A Bountiful Year In Music, Art, & Agriculture!
There’s always been a lot to celebrate about Wolfe Island: the water, land, agriculture and people — and now Wolfe Island Records and Wolfe Island Spring Craft Brewery, both of whom only raised up their company flags a year ago, plan to do some celebrating.
Wolfe Island Records’ founder, Hugh Christopher Brown will bring the likes of David Corley, Suzanne Jarvie, The Stephen Stanley Band, Jenny Whiteley, Joey Wright, Luther Wright, and himself to perform at multiple stages, on top of presenting two CD Release shows for debut records from newcomers Hadley McCall Thackston and One River. All of the above-mentioned artists created albums that were recorded in Brown’s old Post Office Studio on Wolfe Island.
The music will take place over four days, coinciding with panels and events to deepen our appreciation for nature, celebrate the agriculturalists in our midst and raise awareness about the future of food.
