CW social offers a taste of Virginia music, food and art at the Museums of Colonial Williamsburg

Colonial Williamsburg’s Museum Social brings a taste of Virginia music and food to The Museums of Colonial Williamsburg at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 14.

Sheryl Warner and the Southside Homewreckers present "Old Dominion Songsters," a program honoring the pioneers of early Virginia blues music and its cultural and historical significance. The performance explores the bouncy, ragtime-inspired picking of William Moore of Tappahannock, the powerful slide guitar of street singer Calvin "Big Boy" Davis and the gospel blues of Louisa County native Flora Molton.

A reception following the concert will feature sweet potato biscuits stuffed with shaved salt-cured ham, country-style fritters with charred pepper sauce, fresh fruits and cheeses, and crayfish cakes. Virginia wines and beers also will be available.

Guests can stroll the galleries and enjoy special exhibitions from The Museums of Colonial Williamsburg.

Price for advance tickets is $20 and includes the concert, refreshments, two drink tickets and museum admission. Colonial Williamsburg Good Neighbors pay $17. Tickets are available at the door the night of the performance for $25. Attire is resort casual.
