Sweet Afton at Charlottesville
Saturday, April 6 is going to be an epic day of stouts and serenades! Foolery, Black Forest Cassowary & Coconut Cassowary Release CVIL — all starting at noon. Join us from 7-9 when Sweet Afton takes the stage with authentic folk tunes.
Guitars, fiddles, and three rapturous voices will spin you in a lulling, heartbreaking web. This group of strong women are equally gifted songwriters and singers. Original numbers like “Long Line of Women” take a complex and honest look at the past. Comprised of Marie Borgman (Chamomile and Whiskey), Marina Madden (songwriter and accomplished traditional Irish singer/dancer) and a rotating cast of other Charlottesville veteran performers, this band may have been formed on the side, but stands on its own sturdy Appalachian folk legs. Due to their busy schedules in other bands, they don’t play out often, so catch them while you can.
