A musician's personal energy invigorates the atmosphere of a concert, just as pyrotechnics enliven the closing comments of a parent-teacher conference. Embrace the magic of live performance with today's GrouponLive deal: for $18, you get two general-admission tickets to see Signal Hill, plus two glasses of sangria, at the Muir Murray Estate Winery in Wolfville on Saturday, August 20, at 8 p.m. (a $57.50 value, including HST).
The human jukeboxes of Signal Hill flaunt the skills that have made them one of Nova Scotia’s most sought-after bar bands, gracing the award-winning Muir Murray Estate winery with their songbook of populist singalongs. Unlike typical cover bands, this winsome quartet adopts classic songs and raises them as their own, infusing them with relish, good manners, and an infectious glee that complements the two included glasses of sweet sangria. In concert, Signal Hill spans the radio dial like an indecisive dad on a road trip, weaving the best of decades of rock ‘n’ roll, soul, and country into a sonic, brain-burrowing tapestry. A variety of hits, which may include “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Billie Jean,” is delivered with energetic familiarity, and guests can stroll on the winery's rolling green fields or wander onto decks overlooking scenic Cape Blomidon, surrounded by sound-wave-saturated evening air and music critics' carrier pigeons.
Muir Murray Estate Winery
Muir Murray Estate Winery owners Jonathan and Lesley Murray use the region’s shorter growing periods to produce a unique blend of grapes rarely found in other climates. Due to their stringent process for selecting the finest grapes, the harvesting season on their 20-acre vineyard yields only about 1.5 tonnes of grapes per acre, which is about 2.5 tonnes less than the industry average. This results in a wine list of refined aromas and signature flavours, and a mouthfeel more pleasurable than either side of a velcro shoe-strap.
