In conjunction with The Flower Moon Celebration at The Honeysuckle Tea House, Brendan Macie will be performing solo, original work at The Looking Glass Tasting Room!
Brendan Macie is a musician who has infused warmth and heart into his banjo playing by defining an acoustic sound that is both truthful and introspective. He is currently writing, recording and performing locally.
As a native North Carolinian, Brendan became interested in playing the banjo because of its authentic, and American sound.
He has been described as “a cerebral thinker who plays from his heart."

In honor of April's Pink Moon (in full show this Sunday) we've put together a night of celebration at The Looking Glass Tasting Room!
Local musician and the triangle's darling, Gabriel David, will be our first artist featured in the Musician Spotlight. Boasting a wide range and silky voice, Gabriel David's original work combines pop writing with soulful R&B arrangements. He's a true veteran of the Chapel Hill indie music scene and a promising talent. Definitely not someone to miss!
The Looking Glass Tasting Room will also feature a Botanist and Barrel Rhubarb Cider for the tasting. And we've come up with some special cider flights to bring in our new Pink Moon.
So come on down to The Looking Glass for a pink evening with some great music.
Hope to see you there!
Looking Glass Tasting room will have owners of Botanist and Barrel on hand pouring their newest limited release Collusion Blueberry cider aged in a Gin Barrel. Think rose cider cocktail! If your familiar with Botanist and Barrel's Tart Blueberry rose cider that's been sold out, it's back and they've aged it for 3 months in a gin barrel. It is a creamy dry rose cider with hints of botanicals and juniper. With only one barrel made it won't last long, come try it for yourself from 5-6:30 Friday night!
