Skinny Tie Jazz
We’ll have Fran Einterz, a Coupeville farmer (Jenne Farm), on bass and Brad Thomas, a retired physician (and IC Health Officer), on keyboard. They combine their dubious musical talents to present a mixture of jazz standards and not so standards. Both have been playing instruments for over 60 years.
"We've been playing together for 7 years," says bassist Einterz, "and it seems like 70... I still never know where Brad is going to go with a song - sometimes he leads with a kazoo solo, sometimes he sings, sometimes he plays a song in Fb and I just have to fake it. Once at a Bar Mitzvah I'd had so much Manischewitz that we actually played two different songs at the same time. No one seemed to notice. “You know, it's jazz, baby."

About This Winery
Cedergreen Cellars is a family winery founded by Kevin and Julie Cedergreen in 2002.Growing up in Eastern Washington, they watched the sage and scrub change to seas of green and now seek the wines that issue from the best fruit of the Columbia Valley. The winemaker’s focus is finely crafted wines with an eye on the bright flavors that delight the palate and deliver optimum expression in the dining room.
Experience garnered working at wineries in Washington State and New Zealand, in addition to trade visits all over France and along the Pacific Rim from southern Chile to the far north of Canada, have shaped Kevin’s wine-making philosophy to value old world concepts and new world techniques. Kevin makes wine that captures the essence of harvest. Awe inspiring fruit, handled with care, short hours from vine to the winery and a light hand combine to create a wine that shows the best the fruit has to offer.
