Enjoy Danny O’Keefe and a glass of wine
Music legend Danny O’Keefe will perform at Vashon Winery on Saturday — the latest installment in the winery’s summer concert series.
O’Keefe will be joined by musician Joel Tepp, and the audience will sit on the lawn in front of the winery. Wine and cider, of course, will be available by the glass.
Expect O’Keefe to fill the orchard air with original and personal songs of love, life and daily struggles — songs such as “Good Time Charlie’s Got the Blues,” “The First Time” and “Along for the Ride.”
The show takes place at 7 p.m. The winery’s address is 10317 S.W. 156th St. Tickets are $20. Reservations are not necessary, and concert-goers should bring their own seating. For more information, visit www.vashonwinery.com.
