Music at the Vineyard – Izzi Hughes
Join us Saturday, July 22nd at the Burntshirt Vineyards Tasting Room and Winery for live music at the vineyard with Izzi Hughes! Izzi is a native of our very own town of Hendersonville, NC. At the age of nine, she began playing guitar for various musical theatre and acting classes at the NC State Theatre. Then at twelve, she channeled all of her time and energy into music. She took private lessons in acoustic and electric guitar, voice, and piano. She also joined her music school’s Rock Band Program. For the next three years she fronted a local band, which was featured on the WLOS Morning Show. They also played at a myriad of venues and local benefits including Relay for Life at the NC Agricultural Center and the famous NC Apple Festival.
In 2015, Izzi went to Nashville, TN and recorded two original songs on Music Row. After winning Asheville’s Wild Wing Café Acoustic Throwdown Competition in March of 2015, she began performing as a solo artist. In 2018 Izzi moved to Nashville full-time to pursue a degree in Music Business at Belmont University. Even though Izzi loved Music City, she couldn’t stay away from the mountains for long. In 2023, Izzi moved back to NC, where you can catch her at venues all over Western North Carolina. Her performances deliver youthful energy and musical maturity. Izzi’s eclectic mix of songs remind audiences of the old ones they have forgotten. Her repertoire is also known for putting a unique twist on the new songs of today. Her incredible talent and drive to succeed have shattered misconceptions about her ability to professionally perform at such a young age.
Come on out the Burntshirt Vineyard in Hendersonville Saturday from 4-7 PM and catch a local talent play for a hometown crowd! It’s certain to be an afternoon of amazing music, fantastic wines, good food and great times. We can’t wait to see you here!
