Spring is in swing at City Winery! May is absolutely packed with events to check out, from concerts to wine tastings, you may just find yourself at 1200 West Randolph Street quite a bit.
You’ll definitely want to check out all the concerts coming up the first weekend of May, starting with The Giving Tree Band and Hot Buttered Rum on 5.02. The Giving Tree Band, a Chicago based troupe, and Hot Buttered Rum are both bringing their rich harmonies and energy for the 11PM late show.
Sunday, 5.03, David Lindley will be taking the stage on his solo tour. Lindley, a world renowned instrumentalist, has played with Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills & Nash, and has a Grammy Nominated collaboration album with Jackson Browne. Phew! A guy with that list of credentials is definitely one to check out.
With a name like Eddie from Ohio, it may surprise you to know that this group hails from Virginia. Their show on 5.09 will be high energy and fun, with a focus on acoustics and tight harmonies. Gary Louris will play his solo show the following Friday, 5.15. The former Jayhawks member has been working on his solo material since the Minnesota based band took a break in 2004, and his show will showcase his work from across the decades.
Later in the month, Edwin McCain will be here on 5.19 with Ryan Hommel. The singer famed for his song “I’ll Be” will be here to play a great set, but if you’re looking for even more from McCain, check out his new show on Animal Planet, Flipping Ships. Then, to round out the month, Shelby Lynne will be here for a two night stay 5.26 & 27. As a part of the State of the Union series, Lynne’s performance will pull from her past work and her new album “I Can’t Imagine.”
Of course there is always so much more to do at City Winery outside the concert hall. For anyone looking to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a twist, head over on 5.08 to our Dessert for Dinner event. With four courses from our in house Pastry Chef Angelica Rangel, and a wine to go with it, this is a whole new way to take on a Cinco celebration. And on 5.20, the West of West Wine Festival will return to City Winery. Sip wines from the leading winemakers and proprietors of the West Sonoma Coast.
