Halloween Bash - Chamomile & Whiskey and 49 Winchester
with The BLNDRS -- Presented by WNRN
Dress up, grab a drink and come rock out with some of your favorite Virginia bands! A portion of the proceeds from the evening will benefit Chris Long Foundation and Waterboys.
Chamomile and Whiskey came about like all good, simple things--by making two things into one. In the case of this group, Marie Borgman and Koda Kerl--native musicians of Nelson County, Virginia--combined chamomile tea with Evan Williams whiskey one evening. They decided that what they had made tasted like their sound.
Although the group has evolved since forming in 2011, it, like the subtle mixture of herbal tea and whiskey, has matured and found its own sly, subtle voice. If a band has feet, then Chamomile and Whiskey has both of them firmly on the ground. But if a band is a living thing like a plant--which the best bands are--Chamomile and Whiskey has grown from roots set deep in Americana, blues, Celtic, old-time and the singer-songwriter tradition of the south.
The group has developed a more electric sound with Drew Kimball on guitar and enhanced the foundational fiddle and guitar sound with drummer Stuart Gunter. Their last studio album was recorded in 2019 in Nashville by Ken Coomer of Wilco and Uncle Tupelo. It sounds like music that is lived in and lived through. Their sound tastes like Chamomile and Whiskey.
Waterboys is the signature initiative of the Chris Long Foundation, and is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for clean water for communities in East Africa. Bringing together NFL players, their fans, corporate sponsors, and other charitable organizations, it works to fund the building of sustainable clean water wells through WorldServe International, the initiative’s benefiting charity.
