Orchard Sessions, the live music monthly concert series at The Farm at Old Edwards, is slated for Thursday, August 26.
Join fellow music lovers as they surrender to the magic of the music of singer-songwriter Mike Kinnebrew and the serenity of a mountain summer night.
Forget the days’ or past year’s irritations, whether small or not-so-small, and indulge instead in the idyllic setting amidst the boughs of fruit trees. Gaze at the sky as the sun sets, and the moon rises, and the stars alight.
Listen to Kinnebrew play the songs he writes from the heart – lyrics that weave relatable and familiar narratives. Like the title song from his latest album, One Way to Find Out, written for Old Edwards General Manager Jack Austin that speaks to a watershed moment in his life. Or the stand-out track from the same album entitled, Daring You to Fall in Love with Me, that tells the tale of a fellow musician and his quest to romance the woman who was to become his wife. (By the way, the title was snatched from a line in Beach Music by Pat Conroy – Kinnebrew’s favorite author and an undeniable presence on the Plateau).
At age 14, in Atlanta, Kinnebrew’s Dad taught him to play the guitar. Today, the music which he performs, writes, and records sways between country and folk.
It was influenced by the artists played on the radio of the family station wagon – among them, the Beatles, the Monkees, and Elvis. But Kinnebrew also loved songwriters that seemed to be saying something significant, and he fell in love with the sounds of James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, and the Indigo Girls. In an interview with City Lights host Lois Reitzes, Kinnebrew said that he considers one of his roles as a musician is that of a storyteller, “I talk, and I write and play to feel less alone. When I am singing and feel a connection with the audience, it hopefully makes us all feel less alone.”
Kinnebrew’s wife Lindsey will accompany him on stage on vocals and keys. The intimacy and honesty of their shared performance is sure to touch a chord with lucky listeners.
The show begins at 6:00 P.M. and finishes at 8:00 P.M. There is a $25 cover charge for the public, with online sales opening two weeks in advance. Every ticket includes light bites and a cash bar. The session will move indoors to the new Orchard House in the event of rain. For updates and to book online, visit OldEdwardsHopitality.com/OrchardSessions.
