Harvest Moon Festival to Celebrate Art, Music, Food on the Reynolda Lawn; Caleb Caudle to Perform


"Reynolda House Museum of American Art’s second-annual Harvest Moon Festival will feature music by Caleb Caudle, a New-Orleans based singer-songwriter whose new album is receiving high praise from Country Music Television, Paste Magazine, and more. The event, held on the museum’s south lawn the week of the full moon known as the “harvest moon,” will include take-home art activities for children and adults, food, craft beers, and lawn games.

   The festival will be held Thursday, Sept. 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $10 for students and members of the museum. Advance purchase is suggested and available online at reynoldahouse.org.
Of Caudle’s new album, “Paint Another Layer on My Heart,” “Paste Magazine” writes “…what more could you ask for from an album?” Caudle, originally from Winston-Salem, has toured extensively throughout the Southeast. The Winston-Salem inspired songs of his previous album “Tobacco Town” were described in “Blurt Magazine” as “jaw-droppingly fine songs steeped in classic Earle, Ely, Clark, McMurtry and Van Zandt.” His Reynolda House concert is currently the only live performance booked in the Piedmont Triad.

Festival-goers will have a chance to enjoy samples as well as purchase products from a variety of local and regional vendors including Café Gelato, Homeland Creamery, Horne Creek Living Historical Farm, McRitchie Winery & Ciderworks, Butt Bros. BBQ, and Buffalo Creek Farm and Creamery.
“Reynolda was the original sustainable farm,” says Phil Archer, director of public programs. “This event is an opportunity to tap into all that Katharine Smith Reynolds envisioned for her country estate – a place for the community to learn, play, and share together.”

   Blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged. In case of rain, the event will be held inside the museum. For more information, visit reynoldahouse.org or call 336.758.5150.
