Information and to RSVP
Pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph, who is included on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 greatest guitarists of all time, leads this four-time Grammy Award-nominated funk and soul band. Many musicians claim that they “grew up in the church,” but for Robert Randolph that is literally the case. The renowned pedal steel guitarist, vocalist and songwriter led such a cloistered childhood and adolescence that he heard no secular music while growing up. If it wasn’t being played inside of the House of God Church in Orange, New Jersey—quite often by Robert and members of his own family, who upheld a long but little known gospel music tradition called sacred steel—Randolph simply didn’t know it existed. Which makes it all the more remarkable that the leader of Robert Randolph and the Family Band is today an inspiration to the likes of Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana and Derek Trucks, all of whom have played with him and studied his technique. It wasn’t until he was out of his teens that Randolph broke away from the confines of his social and musical conditioning and discovered rock, funk, soul, jazz and the jam band scene, soon forging his own sound by fusing elements of those genres. Randolph’s latest album Got Soul, was released February, 2017.
Join Maywood Project Manager, Greg Bollard, and Vineyard and Orchard Manager, Dave Lambert, for a walk through the vineyard to learn about cultural needs and production practices. We will then see a wine-making demonstration, and enjoy a tasting of Maywood wines. The integration of biorational agricultural practices with the horticultural efforts at Maywood was driven by the desire to be good land stewards. Crop diversification and foraging have been practiced at Maywood for over fifteen years. The goal is to avoid competition with local farms and enhance what is available to local residents. Maywood also creates several value-added products, including maple syrup and wine, which further enables the property to practice organic ideals. 1:30 p.m. Registration is required. Admission is $30 for Garden Conservancy members; $35 for nonmembers. For More Information: See www.opendaysprogram.org or call The Garden Conservancy toll-free weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, 1-888-842-2442.
Your registration includes Open Days admission to this garden destination—a $7 value. Maywood Garden is open on this date to general Open Days visitors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as part of the Litchfield County, CT Open Day.
