The Northfield Historical Society will host its fourth annual Hops, Grapes and History fundraising event April 15. This year’s entertainment will be Mark Allen and the Keywest Rejects. All funds raised for the event benefit general NHS operations.
The evening will start at 7 p.m. (doors will open a few minutes before) with a tasting of locally produced wine, beer, cider, and spirits from Keepsake Cidery, Sweetland Orchard and Cider, Loon Liquors, Next Chapter Winery, and local “Imminent” home brews. All of the vendors produce their product in or near Northfield.
The event also will include a raffle for a variety of items from local businesses.
After the tasting, Mark Allen and the Keywest Rejects will take the stage at 8:15. With his acoustic guitar and hard-hitting harmonica, Allen prides himself on performing his own music “created to express emotions and experiences that come from everyday living.” The singer-songwriter is a little acoustic, a little Americana, some alt country, country, acoustic rock, “and whatever else seems to fit.”
