Special Prize Draws All This Week

Wednesday August 16 Stone Poets
Stone Poets emerge with a blend of contemporary folk. Marc Gladstone, Scott Jackson and Cherelle Jardine. Collectively they are Stone Poets…    These candlelight minstrels are perfect for an evening of wine and reflection. Just as at home, in large theatre settings or private house concerts; Stone Poets entertain with their stories, while their music brings both tears and smiles, sweet sadness and hope. Stone Poets have been described as “contemporary folk” … folk perhaps, because of the instrumentation: keyboard, two acoustic guitars and rich, harmony laden vocals… contemporary because the subject matter in their songs ventures into topics other than traditional folk lyrics.

Voice of an Angel
Alice  is a trained classical singer (soprano), specializes in Broadway Musical Theatre. Her music includes Carmen, Tosca, Le Boheme, Phantom of the Opera, Cats, West Side Story, Sound of Music, Music Man and Merry Widow.

You will most definitely enjoy a great night of opera in one of the world’s most relaxing settings.
