Driven Women is an old-time string band from Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Their music comes from the fiddle and banjo traditions of the Appalachian Mountains, especially West Virginia and Kentucky. The three women seek to preserve and revive the sounds of the mountains, including high energy square dance tunes, melancholy ballads, and sweet waltzes. And occasionally, just for fun, they throw in some early blues from the ‘30s and ‘40s.

Admission is $20 per person. Wine will be available for purchase by the glass or bottle. By law outside alcohol is not permitted. Email info@clovellyvineyards.com or call 410-708-1775 to make your reservation.
