We're excited to get the weekend started with the Stewedafried Bluegrass Trio and their awesome crockpot of musical delicacies. Making their Glass House Winery debut here in the tropics of Free Union. Friday, April 30th, from 6 to 8:30pm. Open to all, no cover!

Stewedafried Bluegrass Trio uses elements of old-time fiddle music, Appalachian clogging tunes, and cajun flavorings to push the boundaries of bluegrass into new and unexplored dimensions. Taking their cue from modern innovators such as Cedric Watson and sonic soul-brothers the Amazing String Band, Stewedafried hues a sound that’s a continually evolving amalgam of traditional and contemporary styles. Comprised of Chris Leva on guitar and vocals and Colby Joplin on fiddle and vocals (both of Ragged Mountain String Band) and Matty Metcalfe (Hackensaw Boys/Hogwaller Ramblers) on banjo and accordion, The Stewedafried Trio serves their sonic gumbo hot and fresh with just enough spice to get you tapping and singing along. Come find out what ‘Stewedafried’ music really means!

*a food truck may be added, check back or call the Tasting Room for an update

Please note, the music is planned to be outdoors --- set up under the eaves on the back deck. Glass House Winery owner Jay has recently added several fire pits along the deck adding a beautiful ambience as well as an aid to keep you cozy on the cooler days.

In certain circumstances (to include inclement weather/severe temps):

~ the music may be canceled

~ the music may move into the tropical conservatory where, due to social distancing requirements, there is limited, spaced seating (with overflow seating on the covered deck)

~ if the music moves into the conservatory, there may be a need to downsize the number of band members

~ a passing light shower might be okay, but patrons should be prepared

Please check our Social Media posts or call the Tasting Room for an update.

We have plenty of spaced seating areas, the majority of which is outdoors --- all seating areas are first come, based on what is available. We also have lots of room for tailgate/picnics on the grass, also first come.
