Four Vermont wineries will serve up both “Blues for Breakfast” and “Nachtmusik” for dessert when they host to two diverse musical groups for their Vermont tours. The American Blues Roots Duo and The Eleva Chamber Players will do-si-do around each other in their concert tours highlighting some of the best of Vermont wine and music June 20-23, 2013.
The Eleva Chamber Players will play three concerts including several: Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, K. 525” and Vivaldi’s “Summer” from “Four Seasons.” The central Vermont orchestra is composed of professional musicians from throughout the Northeastern U.S., united by a mission to elevate the human spirit through music. These fine players present three concerts: on Friday, June 21 at 6:00 pm at Fresh Tracks Farm in Berlin; on Saturday, June 22 at 6:00 pm at Lincoln Peak Vineyard in New Haven; and on Sunday June 23 at 5:00 pm at Shelburne Vineyard in Shelburne.

Grammy-nominated Delta blues legend guitarist Bill Sims and Vermont harmonica master Mark LaVoie are down home, back porch, and hellhound all at once. Their old-school sound harkens back to a time before electricity turned the blues up loud, when feeling and soul were everything. Bill Sims returns to Vermont from tours around the world and a trip to the 2013 Grammys with his Heritage Blues Orchestra, and Mark LaVoie is our hometown harmonica hound from Bristol, VT. Elwood's House of Blues called their music "as rich as maple syrup" and it's true-- rich, sweet, mellow, and strong, the American Blues Roots Duo plays standards and originals from the golden age of blues. The duo will play four concerts: on Thursday, June 20 at 5:45 pm at Fresh Tracks Farm; on Friday, June 21, 6:00 pm at Lincoln Peak Vineyard; on Saturday, June 22 at 6:00 pm at Shelburne Vineyard; and on Sunday, June 23 at 2:00 pm at Snow Farm.
