**Jennie DeVoe covers “Summertime”**
Singer-songwriter Jennie DeVoe is well aware of the compromises that often come with signing to a major label. So she started her own in 1998. The decision allowed DeVoe to retain total artistic control and build a dedicated following with nothing more than her smoky vocals and heartfelt, idiosyncratic phrasing. With a voice described by NUVO as a “soulful, raspy, bird-like instrument,” DeVoe shows off her range in such tunes as “It Hurts So Bad,” curly hair flailing and holding the microphone for her as she belts out regrets over a long-lost relationship.
Mallow Run Winery
The story of Mallow Run Winery reads like a Steinbeck novel with a happy ending—a tale of romance, music, and farm life. John Richardson grew up on the 600-acre plot where Mallow Run now resides, but left for 35 years to become a teacher. During this time, he raised his son, Bill, whose dream of following the pastoral path of his ancestors led him to pursue a degree in Agriculture at Purdue University. After he graduated and his father retired, they both returned to John’s stomping ground with the intent of growing grapes for various Indiana wineries. Bill would meet his wife, Laura, while playing music locally in the Carmel Symphony—the former on French horn and the latter on clarinet—and thus, the triumvirate behind Mallow Run Winery was born.
Between the bushels of corn and soybeans that spring from the verdant fields, eight acres of grapevines produce the plump fruit that goes into bottles of Chardonel, Traminette, Seyval Blanc, and other varietals, and the tailpipes of any double-parked cars on the estate. The winery has become a destination to listen to live music in addition to sipping wine with friends and family, as the winery’s spacious lawn is often used for concerts from local artists.
