Patchouli to play Concert in the Vines

The acoustic duo Patchouli -- Bruce and Julie Hecksel -- will make their only Red Wing appearance of the summer Aug. 20 when they perform at 7 p.m. at Falconer Vineyards.

The Concert in the Vines event takes place in Falconer's new covered patio area overlooking the vineyard.

"This summer has been non-stop forward motion, packed full of new music, tour adventures and big accolades," the couple said in a press release.

In June Patchouli won the Songwriter of the Year Award at the Unvarnished Music Festival in Worthington, Minn. They were voted honorary co-directors of the Shawano Folk Festival in Wisconsin, and recently they were voted favorite folk act of all time at Chicago's oldest running folk concert series, the Two Way Street.

Their rising popularity filled their Midwest summer tour with 60-plus shows in a six-state region.

Patchouli and Terra Guitarra CDs are available online at www.patchouil. net and in Red Wing at Best of Times Bookstore, Simple Abundance and the Red Wing Arts Association Depot Gallery.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at door. Call 651-388-8849 or go online to
