-A A +A

ROCKY POINT – Blue Heron Farm will play host to a book signing and evening of musical memories from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8.

Author of the recently released book “Widder’s Landing,” Eddie Price will be at Blue Heron Farm’s “Wine Over Water” with copies of his book for sale and signing. The book is historical fiction, telling the story of a young man who travels down the Ohio River from Pennsylvania and settles in Breckinridge County, Ky. The story begins in 1811 and goes through the War of 1812, detailing life on the Kentucky frontier and Kentucky’s contribution to the War of 1812.

During the event, featured musicians in the barn will be Beth and Barry Reasoner, formerly of Tell City, who have grouped other performers in a fashion reminiscent of the old Franklin School Coffee House popular in Tell City in the 1990s. Singers for the evening include Stan LaGrange and Wild Mother, a performance troupe that hails from Dubois County. Pat Jarboe, who was instrumental in the formation of the Franklin School events, will retain his role as well.

Tributes will be made to Capers Restaurant, which burned earlier in the year and to the life of the late Gary McMahon, a former Tell Citian and regular at Coffee House events.

Food by “Rudy’s Catering” and wine by Blue Heron will be available for purchase. This is a free-admission event.

Blue Heron Farm is located at 7757 State Hwy. 66 at Rocky Point, four miles east of Cannelton.
