** E-tickets (delivered in a separate e-mail) can be taken straight to the gate to be scanned the night of the event. When purchasing tickets, members receive their discount at the check-out screen once they sign in or register with the online sales program. Member discounts are only valid for online purchases.

Seating is limited in the Meditation Garden. We encourage you to explore our many acres and spread out into the various garden spaces!

Food & Drink
Visitors are welcome to bring in their own food and non-alcoholic beverages. Lost Grove Brewing is onsite serving delicious beer. Tasty bites and wine are also available all season long!

7/7 Hillfolk Noir

Grab a drink, sit down, take a breath, have a listen for a moment, an hour, a night, because here they come with their earnest musical narratives of the back alleys, the open range, the hollow, the front porch, the lives behind the love, want, fear and fracture of a world that despite all adversity remains, within their songs, hopeful, thoughtful, jubilant. The band deems their sound Junkerdash – part folk, part bluegrass, part string-band blues, part punk, and most certainly wholly kickass. Bourbon and the Western Swing are a recommended pairing with Hillfolk’s Junkerdash, we’re told, which seems spot-on.

Fronted by multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, Travis Ward, this trio of neo-traditionalists includes Alison Ward on musical saw, washboard, banjo, and purely gorgeous vocals, as

well as Mike Waite keeping the heartbeat, rhythm and flow alive on double bass.

John Doe (X, the Knitters), patron saint of the American Dream, once said, “If John Steinbeck owned a speakeasy, Hillfolk Noir would be the house band.” Amen.

See you at the show, on the dance floor, in the throes of another broke-down and beautiful Saturday night.
