These intimate events held in the Hardware Distillery in Hoodsport feature the works of local chefs and distillers as well as some great entertainment in a fantastic setting on the Canal.  February's event featured delectable Beef Wellingtons prepared by master chef Kerry Myers of Hood Canal Events; St Patrick's Day featured corned beef sliders and Irish Pub classic music.

Organized by Great Bend Music's director, Matthew Blegen, these events combine interactive musical entertainment with authentic venues and culinary expertise. 

Sunday's event (May 27) will celebrate music that draws our mind to visions of long sea voyages and pirate sea shanties.  It is sure to be an entertaining and unique event as special guest, Zossima Karamozov, of the Flying Karamozov Brothers is joining Blegen to lead the sing-along!
