Chefs Ollie Inglis and Kelly Burton: Ollie grew up working and helping on her family’s Somerset Farm in Edenton, NC. Both she and Kelly orchestrate dinners by using what grows and flourishes in the field. Their “love of cooking and cooking for love” allows them to prepare family-style meals where folks can connect with each other, the environment and food.
About Artist Lynn Nash: Lynn is an abstract oil painter whose work focuses on how abstract images interact with us on a daily basis. “It helps me as an artist to look at connectedness in all things, seeing what is there, what might be, or what used to be. I enjoy finding new ways of seeing.”
About Alligator Minor: In their entertaining mix of music you will hear influences of bluegrass, blues, Americana, and folk. Andy Keeler plays the banjo while Carol Lee provides the vocals and plays the guitar.
