Cultural Center of Cape Cod, 307 Old Main St., South Yarmouth
508-394-7100

Website: www.cultural-center.org

7:30p.m. – 9:30p.m.

Pat Wictor, Greg Greenway, and Joe Jencks—nationaly touring folk artists from Boston, New York, and Chicago—have formed a dynamic new male trio whose harmonies and lyrics are warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Calling upon contemporary songwriting, and informed by the deep roots of gospel, blues, and folk, the trio weaves a tapestry of harmony that is brilliantly fresh and yet familiar. Their combined musical skills should make for an unforgettable evening – three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, and piano. Call for reservations. For more, visit http://www.brothersunmusic.com Tickets: $17 in advance, $20 at the door. Co-Hosted by WOMR.

WINE TASTING & TOURS AT TRURO VINEYARDS OF CAPE COD

May 25, 2012

Vineyard is open daily from May – Oct

Truro Vineyards has been in existence since 1992 but the house and the estate date back nearly two centuries. Built in 1813, the square dignified Federal house was part of a farm from its earliest beginnings. First owned by John and Hannah Hughes, the property was later purchased by Captain Atkins Hughes. It was in turn given to his daughter, Amelia and her husband Michael Rich. Rich became a prosperous farmer selling grain, coal and milk from the estate. His hard work and ambition earned Michael the reputation of being “the busiest man in the village”. In 1930 famed artist Edward Hopper was inspired by the property and painted “Rich’s House”. He returned a year later to paint “Rich’s Barn”. During the 1940’s Elton and Margaret Rich were in stewardship of the property. During that time the Richs produced magnificent cantaloupes grown in the estate’s warm, well drained sandy soil. Later, this same soil and site would prove to be a perfect spot for growing grapes. In 1964 the property was sold to Burton and Maxine Rice. The Chinese Mulberry tree that graces the property to the right of the front door was brought over by a ship’s captain around 1850. It has been carefully preserved and maintained. Our most frequently asked question is not about our wines, but rather: “What kind of tree is that?”
