Beginning January 16, the Classic Wineseller will present live music for three days leading up to the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend. The DuPont Brothers (guitars, vocals) perform an early kick-off to the holiday weekend on Thursday, January 16 at 7pm. Leo Johnson (guitar, vocals) entertains Friday, January 17 beginning at 7pm, and Joe Cruz (piano, vocals) plays Saturday evening, January 18 at 7pm.
The touring DuPont Brothers are bringing the best of Vermont-made folk-rock-Americana to western North Carolina. For years, singer-songwriter siblings Sam and Zack honed their skills independent of one another. A groundbreaking show in Burlington, Vermont early in 2013 convinced the brothers to blend their unique writing and singing styles and become co-conspirators in this shared family passion.

Versatile jazz, gypsy jazz, and swing performer, Leo Johnson (guitar, vocals) will play swing from the 30s and 40s on Friday evening, January 17 at 7pm.
On Saturday, January 18, Joe Cruz is back at the piano at 7pm delivering the best of the Beatles and Sir Elton John. Cruz grew up singing in church, then became a regular on the club scene in New York City. He has opened for Chicago, Santana, and Bonnie Raitt, among others.
