–The recently released Miss Sharon Jones movie now playing at the Palm Theatre in San Luis Obispo is offering locals an opportunity to get to know this R&B queen just one month prior to her live performance in Paso Robles wine country at Beaverstock. Sharon Jones and her band headline the first day of Beaverstock on Saturday, Sept. 17.
Presented annually by Castoro Cellars, Beaverstock is a two-day music and arts festival featuring live music, art, games, wine, food, beer and cider in a laid-back family-friendly environment. The event will be hosted at Castoro Cellars on Sept. 17 and 18.
“What a great lead up to Sharon being here live next month, we can’t wait to see her on the big screen,” said Luke Udsen, California sales & marketing director and co-founder of Beaverstock. “We were stoked when we found out that Sharon’s movie would not only be released this summer, but be shown right here at the Palm. This movie and her live performance add yet another layer to the feel-good vibe of the Beaverstock community.”
