Our Tailgate Thursday summer music series begins May 26th with Gallatin Canyon! We’ll continue to fire up the grills and host live music every Thursday from 6pm to 9pm through September 1st. Bring food to cook and your best grilling skills for a fun, laid back start to your almost-weekend.

Don’t forget to pack lawn games and picnic blankets! Dogs and children are welcome, and meat from The Rock Barn and Free Union Grass Farm can be purchased and thawed by calling ahead. We provide grill tools, plates, utensils, and condiments. This year we’ve added expanded seating options, a fire pit, and dance floor!

Please note that inclement weather may cancel the event – stay tuned to our facebook page and website to stay on top of updates and weekly lineups.

Due to VA ABC regulations the only alcohol that can be consumed on the property must be wine purchased from the tasting room during the duration of the event.


Gallatin Canyon

Gallatin Canyon is a Charlottesville based bluegrass band. True to its Virginia roots, the band specializes in traditional bluegrass music with a refreshing, modern sensibility. Nodding to the bluegrass past with a traditional spin, the band is also known for rebooting many favorites from the country and classic rock genres.

Sally Rose Band

The Sally Rose Band is a sweet southern grit, indie rock, musical beast. Led by vivacious front woman Sally Rose, the band tells stories about ghosts, love, loss, witches, country life, moons and heart ache. It’ll melt your heart, and break you down. 

Bobby Midnight Band

The Bobby Midnight Band formed in 2014 as an offshoot to Charlottesville’s acclaimed Trees on Fire. Headed by singer Rob Mezzanotte, percussionist Paul Rosner and bassist Brian Wahl, BMB creates funky dance grooves and memorable original melodies to carry the torch for real music in the digital era. 

Sue Harlow

Sue Harlow is an Americana-Folk Singer/Songwriter whose haunting vocals delve into the depths of what makes people real. A thread of emotion runs through her music and binds together life’s moments. Her songs cut down to the bone and take you on a journey of human heartache and heartbreak to hope and healing to joy and love.

Jacob Paul Allen

Jacob sometimes calls his style “Appalachian-Red Dirt.” With a songwriting style that is based on keeping it simple and making the lyrics hit home, Jacob’s tunes draw the listener in and keep them intrigued. His songs, ranging from childhood memories to current life lessons and struggles, resonate well with the audience and keep them wanting to hear more.


SATURDAY – 07.02.16
Chickenhead Blues Band

We’re celebrating the 4th of July and our 5th anniversary! Chickenhead Blues Band will return as our Independence Day band of choice and Kitchen Catering will be serving up a Summer BBQ Menu from 12pm to 3pm. The menu and more details will be available on our facebook and website as the date approaches. Please note that the grills will not be set up for use during this event. 

Burrito Riders League

Burrito Riders League came together in the spring of 2015, after Richmond area musician Slim Stanton loudly opined on Facebook, something to the effect of: “Before I die I need to play in a 1970s country-rock cover band.” Immediately, singer-songwriter Paulo Franco took up the challenge.
