John Shaw Waterside at Woodlawn

What could be the best bookend to our Summer & Indian Summer Waterside at Woodlawn music program outside along Calvert Creek? An afternoon of classical guitar with John Shaw.  Reaching towards the quieter months of late fall and whatever winter will bring this year, John will move your heart as music emanates from his guitar, carefully worked with a master's musical hands. 

Come watch, wonder and especially, enjoy.

Higher Standards plays Waterside at Woodlawn

Fall is officially 4 days off and our tribute to the change of season won't be felt much if the traditional Maryland Indian Summer has its way.  So much to do in September always, so plan ahead to take some time before those days of hanging out creekside with us are inside instead of outside. Make the most of the summer weather attending early fall with a picnic, Slack wine and music by a great, young jazz trio, Higher Standards.

Americana Waterside at Woodlawn

Lissie Deere on Piano at Woodlawn, Waterside

Every Sunday can't always be fun... or can it be? We like to think so, but it's possible that it might eventually be different.  Join us for our penultimate Sunday afternoon outside (we hope) creekside with Lissie Deere on piano, and all cares and troubles left at the brick gate, please. Inspiring to just enjoy this very diversely talented woman with a glass of Slack wine in hand.  In the best tradition of a good fall day --- asual, relaxing, contemplative.  Sound good? Join us!

Not us.  Bring your picnic, grab some Slack wine at the Wine Cottage, and revel in the Indian Summer which is as much a Maryland tradition as crabs and tomatoes (as a matter of fact, you may want to pick up a sandwich or two with these packed in at St. Inigoes General Store, 4 miles North on Route 5).

What can be better on a Sunday in July --- the last for 2016 --- to be sitting waterside at historic Woodlawn with Coastline providing an afternoon of easy pop and rock.  These are the days of memories, as all of us ponder the meaning of summer on the precipice of those days when it seems it could go on for ever.  

Bring your picnic, dogs on leashes, kids and family for a great afternoon of Slack wine, music and food.

Everyone's favorite afternoon hanging out by the water with Dave Norris. Here's a musician who has been at it for almost all of his life, and it shows. Born in Chopticon, he hasn't strayed far from home, but his music takes you to lots of imaginary places.

Blessing of the Vines at Jubilee: Slack Winery's 5th Annual Spring Ritual

Our annual pilgrimage out in to the vineyards with Wine Club Member Father John Ball is planned at Jubilee Farm tomorrow.  All wine club members are invited to partake between 1:00-5:00 pm with rain clouds lessening as we go, apparently.

In his 5th year as our spiritual leader, Father John will once again read from the scriptures to help us in a particularly important year. You'll see throughout the farm major changes as we are replanting part of the vineyards this year and even moving the winery operations. This is all much in transition as you will see so you'll get a peak at the future.  

We've ordered the dogwoods in bloom for you, the grass is freshly mowed, and probably at some point someone will be out in the vineyard working through the vines as we're finishing pruning and restructuring of the vineyard.  

Bring your family and friends; let me know so there's enough food for everyone. 

AND importantly COASTLINE is playing wonderful tunes in the Winery Barn so stop by if you can.

Spring without a farm day can hardly seem complete.

On the right is this very impressive instrumentalist who also performs well with a group.  Need to jump up and join him? If you have the talent, let us know.  

We enjoy the music as much as any at Woodlawn, so it's a perfect close to our music season and anticipates that on April 3rd you might just see him again as we start our 2016 Waterside at Woodlawn Sunday music and wine series.
