Finger-licking’ and finger-picking’ good!

Spring is springing in Rappahannock! On Saturday April 7th is the BlueState/BlueGrass Brunch, from 10 a.m. to 2 pm at the Washington Fire Hall.

Price of admission? Just “a handshake and a smile”!

Come share good food, the blue grass sounds of Smitty plus a banjo, and an auction of three works by well-known Rappahannock artists. And yes, there will be a few political speeches from some Democratic hopefuls for U.S. Congress in the 5thDistrict.

For those going on to the races, you have plenty of time to grab a snack, hear some tunes, and catch up with your neighbors before the first race.

Join us for good company and the ongoing celebration that is Spring in Rappahannock—come rain or shine. The auction action precedes the speeches at 11:15-ish.

Tristan Shields – Candidate for Virginia’s Delegate District 18

From www.TristanShields.com:

Graduating with a BA degree in Theater from the College of Charleston, I did a stint as a professional stage actor in Memphis, TN where I honed my singing voice on Beale Street.  Returning to Virginia, I founded the Shields Brothers, a rock harmony singing duo with my younger brother, Rory.  We started playing locally in the Charlottesville, Warrenton and Culpeper areas, eventually getting selected by Ceelo Green as Finalists on NBC’s the Voice, Season 2. From there we raised funds on Kickstarter from our fans to produce music and videos. Spending time in Los Angeles on a variety of acting and music projects, we ended up singing backup for 80s Poison star, Bret Michaels. Along the way, we built a significant YouTube and podcasting presence, garnering over 1.2 million views and 150,000 downloads on our Who Stole What podcast.

My Virginia roots go deep. I can trace my lineage back to Richmond 1838. Presently, I live on my family’s (small) horse farm in Rixeyville, Virginia.
