Maryhill Winery presents U.S. Navy Band Country Current
August 28, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
GOLDENDALE, Wash. – Summer concerts are returning this summer to Maryhill Winery.
Last year, there were no concerts at the showpiece winery in the Columbia Gorge because of road construction.
Maryhill Winery’s concert amphitheater seats 4,000 people and is perched atop basalt cliffs overlooking the Columbia River and provides stunning views of the Columbia Gorge and Mount Hood. It is owned by Craig and Vicki Leuthold, who founded the winery in 1999.
On Aug. 28, Maryhill Winery presents the U.S. Navy Band Country Current.
The Navy’s premiere country bluegrass ensemble is nationally renowned for its versatility and “eye-popping” musicianship. Country Current will perform a blend of modern country music and cutting-edge bluegrass.
This seven-member ensemble employs musicians from diverse backgrounds with extensive high-profile recording and touring experience in the music scenes of Nashville, New York City, New Orleans and more. In the tradition of country music, each member is a skilled performer on multiple instruments. The band utilizes banjo, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin, fiddle, electric bass, upright bass, dobro, pedal steel guitar and drum set.
The 6 p.m. performance is free and open to all ages, however tickets are required.
Concertgoers may purchase Maryhill wine by the glass or bottle. They are welcome to bring their own picnic or purchase food from onsite vendors. All food concessions are cash only.
In 2016, Maryhill Winery won three double gold medals, two best-of-class awards and five gold medals at the fourth annual Cascadia Wine Competition in Hood River, Ore.
