We hope your toes are ready for tappin’, because Vancouver-based duo The Mudbugs will give a special performance at Rusty Grape Vineyards from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 9. While you listen to the music, you can enjoy buy-one-get-one-free wood-fired pizzas and growler fills, roasted red pepper hummus and flatbread, Caesar salad, and other good eats.
The Mudbugs are roots-based with blues, country, and zydeco at the core. You’ll hear original tunes influenced by Clifton Chenier, Doc Watson, Hank Williams Sr., and Snooks Eaglin, as well as some favorite Americana covers. The Mudbugs are KG Jackson on vocals and guitar with Candy Jackson on accordion, washboard, triangle, and backup vocals.
Rusty Grape Vineyard offers award-winning wine, beer, and cider every single day of the week. Their hours are Mondays through Thursdays from 4 to 9 p.m., Fridays from 4 to 10 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 10 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. There’s often live music, and this summer, they are offering Movies on the Lawn every Friday through Sept. 1. They also host other fun events like cider tastings, win-and-yoga workouts (yup, it’s a thing!), cornhole tournaments, ladies nights, and wine-and-paint workshops. Thirsty Thursdays are every Thursday from from 4:30 to 7 p.m., when wine is just $4 a glass and pints of beer are $3.
