Skyline Ridge @ Collver Family Winery – June 7 – Barry, IL

skylineIf you love great local music, you don’t want to miss Skyline Ridge! They will be performing at the Collver Family Winery on Saturday, June 7 from 2-5 pm. There will be a cover charge of only $5.

Skyline Ridge consists of a young couple who have been playing music together for over 4 years now. Their blend of a modern country sound mixed with a touch of bluegrass makes for a unique style that you wont find anywhere else. Matt and Hannah Bordenkircher met in the summer of 2009 and soon thereafter began sharing their passion for music and the outdoors. A few years passed playing local bars and writing songs from the tree stand. All the meanwhile, their relationship grew both personally and musically. In 2013, Matt and Hannah took the next step in both facets of their lives by getting married in the fall, and making a trip to Nashville to record their EP as Skyline Ridge.
