Free Music Sunday with Stone & Snow

Free Music Sunday with Stone & Snow


Singer-songwriters Karen Bridges and Clint Thomson have been crafting their unique style of folk-influenced music since 2012. The combination of Bridges' soulful, soaring vocals and Thomson's roots-influenced guitar in their collaborative songwriting results in a folk sound that can only be described as their own.

With a name that gives a nod to the Rocky Mountains, Stone & Snow released their debut album, "These Are The Hills" in 2014 after a wildly successful crowd-funding campaign. The album is a monumental collection of fifteen melancholy folk songs on love, loss and exploration amidst the imagery of the landscape to which their name makes reference. The music took them on the road to places like the Taste of Chicago and the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee.

In 2016, the duo ran their second successful crowd-funding campaign and released their sophomore album. Self-produced in collaboration with David Rossi (former drummer for Chicago-based band, Allister) of Bombsight Recording, the new album represents the next level in their journey as songwriters, evolving into a more electric sound while maintaining their folk roots and delving into themes about the ghosts we leave behind, the devils we know, and how to love through the zombie apocalypse.

"Devil That I Know", their sophomore full-length album, arrived May 6, 2016. Check out their website at www.stoneandsnow.com!

And that's not all, we will be serving up a tasty spread from Rosatis Catering from noon to 4(ish)pm. All that plus our Winey Mary Bar, beer, wine, music, food and specialty drinks for everyone to enjoy! Don't forget it's a Free Music Sunday event!

Music by Blessid Union of Souls

Sleepy Creek is excited to welcome back Blessid Union of Souls! This is their fourth visit to sleepy Creek and this time we get the full band! 

Just for the record, Blessid Union of Souls has thus far clocked in a number one smash, a trio of top tens, five top 20 tunes and seven to hit the top 40, spanning the diverse likes of the iconic ballad “I Believe,” the quirky and colorful “Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me For Me),” the acoustically framed “Light In Your Eyes,” plus romantic favorites like “I Wanna Be There” and “Let Me Be the One” (to name a mere handful)."

From meteoric rise on the radio throughout the 1990s, through the subsequent decade of thought-provoking songwriting and amassing an extremely dedicated fan base on tour, Blessid Union of Souls has become amongst the most beloved, meaningful and musically consistent acts of this generation.
