The Twisted Missive!
Slightly Tuneful Edition!
In This Missive
Twisted Folk Concerts Announced!
We’ve put together what we think you’ll agree is the strongest lineup yet for the 2017 concert season! There are two returning crowd favorites from previous seasons, two multiple Grammy Award winners, two who have been nominated for Grammys multiple times, and one whose latest album is currently #2 on the Billboard bluegrass charts!
Returning to the Oak Saturday, May 13th is none other than The Dustbowl Revival! This band of eight talented musicians – considered the “best live band in LA” – wowed us last year with their creative mix of blues, jazz, swing, and soul. And, their favorite wine is Tempranillo! What more could we ask? Bring your dancing slippers for this one!
And we incredibly honored and delighted to feature on our stage, Jerry Douglas presents The Earls of Leicester! This is not a throwback to Elizabethan times, but is in fact the legendary and world-reknowned dobroist Jerry Douglas – of Union Station and Soggy Bottom Boys fame – and his band of equally talented bluegrass musicians. You won’t want to miss this, one of only two stops in California this season!
Other upcoming concerts – which we will expound upon further in future Missives – include:
For our monthly $35 MasterCluck Gift Card giveaway, please reply to this email and tell us which concert(s) you are most excited about, and why! I’ll choose one response at random for the winner! (Congratulations to Julie R. for being last month’s winner!)
Needless to say, tickets for all shows are now on sale at twistedoak.com/concerts!
Twisted Few Shipment – Coming Soon!
Twisted Few members, watch for a separate email coming soon with details about your next shipment. We can tell you now that it will feature the new vintage of one of your favorites, the 2014 Torcido Garnacha! We think you’ll find it goes great with anything that your springtime grilling can rustle up, or even that leftover corned beef hash! (Not currently a member of the Twisted Few? You know you want to! Sign up now at twistedoak.com/few!)
Speaking of corned beef, last month’s Missive did produce a wide range of pairings with our favorite St Patrick’s feast. Andrew suggested our *%#&@! (which sure sounds like an Irish word), Kelly likes our 2014 Tempranillo, and Debbie called our Torcido “one of the great pairings of all time.” (Wow!) On the other hand, Stephen from Reno always reaches for a chilled Viognier. And to split the difference, Kathleen likes a “Cab Rose” (but I don’t understand what that has to do with taxis.)
You Gotta Sleep Someplace
Why not a cozy bed with sweeping views of the foothills? We recently were invited to visit and tour one of Murphys best local lodging options – and longime Twisted Few members – the Courtwood Inn. Owner and innkeeper Chris whipped up a nice breakfast of fresh fruit, waffles, and bacon – on a stick! – for us to try. After that we toured the tennis-themed rooms and grounds – which look really cushy, I gotta say. Check them out at courtwoodinn.com!
As always, do reply to this email and tell us which concert(s) you are most excited about, to have a shot at that $35 MasterCluck gift card!
Finally, a programming note: For reasons beyond our control – among other things, the futures market in rubber chickens is completely haywire right now – we have decided to postpone Rubber Chicken Appreciation Day to later this year. Stay tuned to this station for further updates.
That should do it for now. Have fun and stay Twisted! – el jefe
