Meadowcroft Wines will start the new year with a monthly songwriter series titled “Songwriters In Sonoma,” presented by Gerard Serafini, owner of Sonoma Valley Music.  Serafini will both book and serve as host of the shows.

“I’ve been looking forward to launching this music series which will also provide an opportunity to include music as a large part of our offerings at the tasting room.  CornerStone is an excellent outdoor space for summer concerts and picnics under the stars,” said owner/winemaker Tom Meadowcroft.

The inaugural show will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 21 and feature singer-songwriters Dawn Angelosante, Sean Carscadden and Jon Williams, who will perform in the round and take turns singing their original songs.    Angelosante brings her warm, sultry vocals along with her accomplished keyboard playing and drawn in an attentive audience.  Carscadden is currently in recording sessions with The Sean Carscadden Trio.  His blues flair will have his listeners swaying along with his familiar deep vocal style.  Williams, lead vocalist with the Sonoma-based band Ten Foot Tone, is also one of the Valley’s most creative songwriters and performers.  He brings a uniquely intense playing style to his creative storytelling lyrics.   Admission is free with a one glass of wine minimum.  Reservations are recommended by calling 934.4090.

“The Meadowcroft tasting room at Cornerstone offers a great atmosphere to hear live music.  The tasting room itself provides an intimate space, plus the Olive Grove and the Pavilion are available for larger shows that we are planning for the warm weather months,” said Serafini.   “We hope to bring a variety of musical styles to the Meadowcroft Wines site.”

Meadowcroft Wines is located at CornerSone Sonoma, 23570 Arnold Drive. 934.4090 or for more information.
