Opening Act: Loveseat from 8-845pm,

Chicago Farmer and the Fieldnotes from 9-11pm,

This son of a small-town farming community, Cody Diekhoff logged plenty of highway and stage time under the name Chicago Farmer before settling in the city in 2003. Profoundly inspired by fellow Midwesterner John Prine, he’s a working-class folk musician to his core. His small-town roots, tilled with city streets mentality, are turning heads North and South of I-80.

He writes music for “the kind of people that come to my shows. Whether in Chicago or Delavan, everyone has a story, and everyone puts in a long day and works hard the same way,” he says. “My generation may have been labeled as slackers, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t work hard – many people I know put in 50-60 hours a week and 12-hour days. That’s what keeps me playing. I don’t like anyone to be left out; my music is for everyone in big and very small towns.”


There will be a “Chicago Farmer” Look-A-Like Contest tonight too! Break out your best Chicago Farmer gear- The right hat, jacket and beard (real or fake is fine) and you could be a winner!! There will be fun prizes for 1st and 2nd place provided by the vineyard and the farmer. So suit up and bring it on, we’re all about FUN ON THE FARM at the vineyard tonight and always.
