Last year we brought you a rodeo of food trucks from across North Carolina. This year, Beaufort Wine and Food is kicking back with an old-fashioned Round Up. Join us April 29th for the Saturday Night Round Up featuring Farewell Angelina and Sam Jones, sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka!
Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group featuring four powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters and badass multi-instrumentalists. Together their magic blend of a multitude of stringed instruments, two blazing violins, and unique harmonies have taken Nashville by storm. Their distinct talent sets them apart and the Beaufort Wine and Food Festival is honored to have them play a role in this year’s events. Unfamiliar with the band? Check them out:
If you’re from North Carolina, you’ve probably heard of Sam Jones, right?
As the third generation to cook traditional whole hog barbecue at Skylight Inn in Ayden, NC, Sam Jones knows his way around a hog. Opening the Skylight Inn in 1947 with a humble beginning, Sam and his family have made quite a name for themselves here in North Carolina. With all the success, however, the family has always stayed true to what has made them what they are: really good Eastern NC style barbecue. Through the years, Skylight Inn has been recognized by several publications and television shows for its wonderful barbecue. The greatest being in 2003 when the family was honored with a James Beard award for “Americas Classics”.
In the fall of 2015 Sam Jones BBQ opened in Winterville, NC. It’s a new restaurant but with all the indicators of traditional BBQ. From the smell of the smokehouse to the freshness of the food and Sam Jones behind the wheel, you know this is the future of eastern NC BBQ.
Joining Sam, and bringing his classic flavors to our tent we have Chef Tom Meyer. Tom is with the Q-Shack and Farmer’s Table Restaurant Group. He is a Beaufort Wine and Food veteran, and we are thrilled to have him once again stamp his culinary prowess on the Festival.
With Farewell Angelina, Sam Jones BBQ, and never-ending drinks from Tito’s Vodka, this Saturday will be a night you won’t want to miss! Be sure to get your tickets early before they sell out.
