Notaviva Vineyards 2010 World Music Festival

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Don't miss Notaviva WorldFest 2010!!! In an attempt to honor those who were lost on 9/11 we feel compelled to bring together world cultures through "musical diplomacy" created with wine, music, art and cuisine.

Imagine the setting - an outdoor music stage nestled against the timber frame tasting room with the best in regional world music, artisans selling heirloom-quality art, a charitable cause including a food drive, various types of cuisine and our own fresh-baked goods. All this plus rural mountain landscapes in prime harvest season - what better way to spend a gorgeous September afternoon!!!

OUR MUSICIANS

The Greenbeets

The GreenbeetsThe chicken pot pie is one of the greatest inventions of all time. The brain-size for the type of person who created such a legendary meal had to have been enormous. By cleverly taking chicken, vegetables, and gravy (each delicious on their own) and stuffing them into a flaky pie-crust (also delicious on its own), this half-person, half-genius managed to change the culinary world forever.

The Greenbeets are the chicken pot pie of the music world. Each band member stands alone as a musician (just as the celebrated ingredients mentioned above). This is not a right that is gained simply by just having talent; rather, it is one that is earned only after years of perfecting and then owning that respective talent. By combining the seasoned flavors of four of the most cultivated musicians in the Washington, DC area, The Greenbeets have created a groove so savory that it will inevitably change the catalog of songs you choose to sing in the shower. Together, they naturally bring about the best in their audience as well as in each other as musicians, as performers, and most certainly as friends. This is the vital secret behind the recipe for The Greenbeets. The proof is in the pie.

Beleza Brasil

Beleza BrasilUnited by musical interests that include samba, funk, soul, blues, bossa, jazz and Spanish flamenco; Humberto Oliveira Sales and Madeline Holly Sales joined forces to blend the melodic, rhythmic and harmonic riches from North and South America. They met at the Federal University of Bahia in Salvador, Bahia Brazil. Berto, native to Salvador, brought all of the rhythmic riches of what attracts so many international tourists to the hip-swinging, samba shaking streets of Brazil during carnival. His formal education in classical guitar and study of Spanish Flamenco added the elegance and poise that is so undeniable when he enters the stage. Madeline brought with her the strong influence of soul, jazz and blues. She sings in Portuguese, English and Spanish. Her sensual, rich voice, playful interpretations and strong stage presence make their combination extremely unique. They are accompanied by Dave Berzonsky on bass guitar and Matt Wyatt on drums. Guest aritsts include Jeff Decker on saxophone, Robert Jospe on drums, Eric Gertner on percussion, Tony Costa on percussion, Mestre Panao on percussion.

Madeline and Berto have performed in Brazil, Turkey, Austria, and the United States. They currently reside in Charlottesville, VA. Their first album was recorded in Brazil with a full band and combines the riches from both Brazilian and American culture.

The Hillbilly Gypsies

The Hillbilly GypsiesThe Hillbilly Gypsies are a West Virginia native string band who specialize in playing their own homegrown style of Appalachian old time music, mixed with a hard drivin' bluegrass sound. In addition to their original material, The Hillbilly Gypsies play an eclectic mix of traditional and quite often, not-so-traditional bluegrass standards and catchy old fiddle tunes.

The Hillbilly Gypsies are best appreciated jamming at a live show. They perform in the old fashioned style, around a single vintage style large diaphragm microphone. This "Old Timey" approach adds a high energy barn party atmosphere to their show. Watching the whole band work around the mic is like taking a trip back in time. It'll sure make you want to get up and dance!

Conor Malone

Conor MaloneIn 1991 while busking in downtown Ennis, Conor was playing some Neil Young and Bob Dylan songs when a passerby stopped and started singing the songs along with Conor, knowing all of the lyrics. The bearded middle aged, heavy set man claimed to be personal friends with Young and Dylan and left Conor a $100 tip in his guitar case. Making an impression on Conor, he thought he would never forget his face and later that year, while looking at an American friend's album collection, Conor saw this generous tipper's picture. It was non other than Jerry Garcia from the "Grateful Dead"!

Conor moved to the United States in 1992 where his son Lua was born and performed in the Washington, DC area for a year. He then moved back to Ireland and performed with various artists in Ireland and France. In 1994, Conor moved back to the US again and settled in Washington, DC where he currently plays locally in the Washington metro area and along the east coast in Irish pubs and festivals.
