Come join us on Sunday 30th October for our next ‘Live in the vines’. An afternoon filled with soul, blues and jazz from Joanna Cooke. We will also be serving our sharing platters (including our new baked camembert platter), 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.
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 October starting from 2:30pm. We can’t wait!
Please note that we will stop serving our full lunch menu from 2pm but we will be serving a range of Devon platters, nibbles (view event menu) + drinks all afternoon. As the cold weather is starting to move in this event will be held inside with views across the valley.
Booking is recommended – Reserve a table for the afternoon
