LIVE- in the Winery presents Patrick Sweany
September 07

Join Standing Sun in welcoming Blues artist Patrick Sweany- ALL AGES WELCOME- food available!

Tickets are $10 general admission & $15 reserved seating. 

http://www.patricksweany.com/

"For those who love the Blues but are bored with the tight-assed "white guys in blazers" style and prefer something more adventurous, Sweany is a slam-dunk. The new album is a start-to-finish thrill, partly due to the singer/songwriter/guitarist's lack of "stick to the script" Blues theory. Sweany dips into the more folksy side of Blues, slinky R&B, early Rock & Roll, '70s Blues Rock and dirty Garage Blues. That's not to say that Sweany is for White Stripes fans only; the man has mad-crazy skills in whatever style he's exploring and redecorating, something even the staunchest "back in my day" curmudgeon is sure to appreciate if they give it an open-minded listen." - Cincinnati CityBeat

Birdies, Barbecue and Books
September 28

Birdies, Barbecue and Books, is a golf benefit for the Buellton and Solvang Libraries. It will take place at the Zaca Creek Golf Course in Buellton, Sunday, September 28.  Tee times will be 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.  Course Manager, Mike Brown, has graciously donated the course.

 

“Come out and enjoy the beautiful setting, great Barbecue and prizes.  People, young and old will be able to complete the 9 hole course with ease, and no golfing expertise is necessary.  This is a “best ball” tournament, so a team’s furthest hit ball becomes the starting point for the next shot,” said Leslie Zomalt, an event organizer.

 

Ticket prices are $50 per golfer.  “Or,” said Carolyn Lawrence, member of the event committee, “you can become a Tee Sponsor with your name on a colored sign for $100.  This is a chance for a business, individual or book group to support the libraries in the Valley.”

 

Buellton Medical Center has generously become a major sponsor.

 

Business Team sponsorships are available for $250.  This includes the entry of 4 players with the team name listed on the program. All sponsorships are tax deductible.

 

Proceeds of the event will be shared by both organizations.  They will help fund the many enrichment programs these libraries provide Valley residents including additional staffing for children and family programs, technology upgrades and other library materials.

 

Both libraries contribute significantly to the Valley. In 2013 Solvang Library had 85,927 visitors, 93 story times, 53 children’s programs and 17,965 computer sessions.  The Buellton Library had 66,336 visits, 64,281 checked out items and 12,747 computer sessions.  “The numbers certainly indicate the continuing value of libraries in our community” said Leslie Zomalt, event organizer.

 

Registration forms are available at the Solvang Library, Buellton Library, and Zaca Creek golf course.  For more information email friendsofbuelltonlibray@gmail.com.
