Nothing epitomizes a longing for Old Virginia more than fine local wine combined with Blue Ridge folk music—and the songs of Devon Sproule are a perfect testimonial. The formerly local singer-songwriter pieces together elements of folk, country, pop, and jazz to create an authentic, simple sound set off by sweet, honest vocals that evoke the countryside’s pastoral bliss. The Toronto-based, sonically enchanting collaborative Bernice opens.

Saturday 6/28. Free, 6pm. Jefferson Vineyards, 1353 Thomas Jefferson Pkwy. 977-3042.
