Join us in the tropics of Free Union for a SATURDAY EVENING treat with LUA PROJECT! Featuring Christen Hubbard on mandolin/violin, Matty Metcalfe on accordion/banjo, Dave Berzonsky on requinto/bass, Estela Knott on Jarana/Requinto, and everyone singing. Lua Project will delight us with their self described “Mexilachian Music: A blend of original & traditional music from Mexico, Appalachia, and the Atlantic Basin.” Saturday, November 20th, from 6 to 8:30pm. Open to all, no cover.
Lua is a cultural pollinator, bridging together musical styles from different continents and different centuries. They write about contemporary themes, about families, and people and work and loss, but draw on the musical traditions of their own families’ past.
The music is inspired by Mexican Son, Appalachian song forms, Jewish and Eastern European tonalities, baroque melodic ideas, and Scotch-Irish narrative storytelling approaches. They strive to create a repertoire that constitutes new traditional music that they will be able to pass down to their children to experience, transform, and pass on.

On occasion the music is held outside under the eaves of the back deck. There are plenty of outdoor seating options as well, many with firepits. All seating areas are first come, based on what is available. We also have lots of room for tailgate/picnics on the grass, also first come.
We encourage you to bring your picnic blanket/ chairs. Pop up tents and personal grills are also welcome to be used at the overflow grassy tailgate and picnic areas. Picnics are welcome throughout the property, barring any outside alcohol.
