Musicians and Music lovers of all genres will soon have a place to enjoy music with open minds and open ears, a place to inspire more creativity and community, without the rigid schedules of typical venues.
Exciting news from Cathe Steele (formerly of Pirates Cove), who’s about to fulfill that musical life-long dream of opening a musicians’ community-type venue (inspired by the farmhouse studio/venue of Levon Helm). With a little help from Grayson & Trina Capps, this venue sports some really unique sounding elements. Can’t wait to check it out. Here’s what she says:
It’s hard to find an authentically intimate musical experience anymore..A place where musicians can feel at home and where they can woodshed new material — a safe place to experiment and create, but with an audience…A place where thereâ€™s no alcohol for sale, but thereâ€™s plenty of food on the community table set up in the old farm house, You can bring your your own drinks & get ready for a shared musical experience for both the audience and the musicians. Inspired by Levon Helms Midnight Rambles, The Frog Pond at Blue Moon Farm & Grayson Capps have put their dreams and talents together on a 100 year old farm in South Baldwin County to do just that. This Spring, Winter & Fall, the firepits will be crackling, the lanterns lit, and the stage lights of the Frog Pond turned on in the moonlight and under the limbs of a 150 year old Cedar tree for our first season of something very special to our area.
Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s scheduled so far.. More is coming
Sept. 9th 7pm Grayson Capps & Special Guests. Special acoustic night with the band and friends. (This lineup is still growing.)

The venue will fill up fast and weâ€™ll be taking the first folks who respond to each announced event until itâ€™s full. New Years Eve last year was an awesome night!!!
