Sun 30th APRIL – From 2:30pm
Come join us on Sunday 30th April for our next ‘Live in the vines’. We will welcome back the wonderful Joanna Cooke who joined us back in October with beautiful sounds of soul, blues and jazz. We will also be serving our sharing platters, plus nibbles + drinks from across Devon to enjoy. Join us in the kitchen overlooking Dartmoor with family and friends and a glass of wine in hand, the perfect way to top off the weekend in the spring sunshine (fingers crossed!)
Motown legend Martha Reeves summed it up perfectly, describing Joanna Cooke as “the baby girl singing the blues”. Joanna, much like her South West blonde counterparts, Joss Stone and Jo Harman, demonstrates that true soul and emotional connection is not simply constrained by colour or creed. Moreover, her self-penned songs leave a lasting impression on audiences, by dint of their raw honesty and song craft.
Joanna’s back story is that she grew up in a strict but passionately artistic family, where her father’s blues records by greats such as Howling Wolf and Robert Johnson became the soundtrack to her upbringing. Joanna had a restless desire for music. She taught herself piano on a keyboard she found in a skip and was soon writing songs that brought people to tears.
Joanna will be performing two 45 minutes sets with us on Sunday 30th April starting from 2:30pm. We can’t wait for her to be back!
Please note that we will stop serving our full lunch menu from 2pm but we will be serving a range of Devon platters, nibbles + drinks all afternoon. As the weather is still changeable we plan to hold the event inside.
Booking is recommended – Reserve a table for the afternoon
