TODAY (weather permitting) All-New Acorn Sisters at Blue Ridge Swim Club, 6pm

June 22nd, 2014 · No Comments · By

Blue Ridge Swim Club, for those of you not in the know, is an Albemarle County gem. It’s a stream-fed pool tucked away in Ivy, and its website claims its the oldest in the US “east of the Mississippi” (one of my favorite superlative-qualifying phrases). At first sight, it’s a bit underwhelming. As one hangs out in the shade by the pool, dipping in every now and again, however you start to understand what a special place it is.

Even more special? They’ve begun hosting shows there every Sunday. Typically, you have to be a member, or be with a member, to get in. On the day of these shows, the guest policy is sort-of suspended, and you simply have to pay the day fee of $15. A bit steep, I know, but totally worth it if you make a day out of it.

Today’s show is the All-New Acorn Sisters, Sian Richards (CLAW) and Sarah White’s (Sarah White and the Pearls) duo tribute to early country music. It will be a lazy Sunday, no doubt, that is if the weather holds up. Rain cancels the event!
