Batesville, VA  22924 Map

The Randy Johnston 3 featuring Jonah Kane-West is a modern incarnation of the timeless guitar, organ, and drums trio sound. This combination is arguably the most versatile and fullest trio sound of all time. With internationally acclaimed artist Randy Johnston on guitar and vocals, and the phenomenal Jonah Kane-West on organ, this group is capable of swinging, or rocking for that matter, with the best of ‘em. Adaptable and dynamic, it’s a jazz group at its core. Refined but not polite, it’s bluesy and funky soul music with a flair of southern rock.

The Saturday Night Dinner Special: Homemade jambalaya and chilled gazpacho de Seville. Perfect summer refreshment! Plus, salads, veggie galette, and quesadillas (try the new "chickapig" version!) will also be available.

Das Homage brings today's energy to the full repertoire of Beatles tunes.

They have performed full albums, such as Rubber Soul, Revolver, Yellow Submarine, and Sgt Pepper's. Batesville listeners may know them from performances on WTJU, New Year's shows at Tin Whistle Irish Pub, and many shows elsewhere around Charlottesville, such as Fellini's, Miller's, The Ante Room, Pro Re Nata, Glass House Winery, Virginia Distillery, Durty Nelly's, and Rapunzel's.

Saturday music: David Tewksbury Band

Jul 8, 6:30pm - Jul 8, 9:00pm

The Batesville Market

Batesville, VA  22924 Map

The David Tewksbury Band returns to the Batesville Market, along with some talented guest musicians! Their performance will range from melodic, soulful numbers to tunes made for grooving and dancing.

As a life-long lover of music of all kinds – chant to jazz and blues, trip-hop to opera, R&B to indie pop – David Tewksbury has been performing his original songs since 1998, beginning with jazz-pop band Image, and then acoustic duo Zofia Drone through 2002, when he started performing as solo artist. Over the years, he has also offered his musical gifts for three houses of worship, spanning music styles from acappella hymns to urban gospel. Inspired by art rock, jazz fusion and R&B on the radio, Tewksbury weds rock’s intensity to soul’s intimacy, with lyrics that cover the gamut from social justice to heartbreak to life-celebrating anthems. Van Morrison, Ben Harper, Amos Lee and Sting are solid influences, while inspiration comes from all corners of the musical prophetical-poetical world.

2016's “Sun is Rising,” Tewksbury’s first full-length CD, is available from the artist directly, as well as iTunes and CD Baby. His 2011 debut EP, “Five Months from October” is also available for purchase.

Jul 9, 1:00pm - Jul 9, 4:00pm

The Batesville Market
6624 Plank Rd
Batesville, VA  22924 Map

Batteau Rouge is trade music...a vintage organic sound muddled with roots ingredients from New Orleans to New York City and distilled in the Shenandoah valley. It's rails and river music. Raw original tunes and crooked b-side covers roughed in with Appalachian rhythms and a touch of the high and lonesome. It's gritty but sweet and no matter where you play it, it's Virginia porch music.

Batteau Rouge is Amy Bowden (fiddle, ukulele, and vocals); David French (guitar, harmonica, and vocals); Lawton Smith (bass guitar, vocals); Tom Garstang (guitar, banjo, and vocals).

Freight Paid is Robert Cockrell (guitar, vocals), Mark Brinson (drums, vocals), Maria Cockrell (bass guitar, harmonica, vocals), David Burns (guitar, vocals) and Victor Lee (keyboards, saxophone, vocals).

They began in Batesville, when Robert invited Mark to play at a local summer solstice party. The band took their name from an old sign found in the out-building where they practice, reflecting the paths that brought them together. They play Robert’s original music spanning rock, blues and jazz and mix-in a similar range of well-known favorites.

Come enjoy the music 6:30-9:00 pm on July 15! Bring your honey, bring your friends, and bring your appetite!
