Surfin’ and Turfin’ With WVPT and The Embers

While Charlottesville was celebrating Thomas Jefferson’s 270th birthday, WVPT, Virginia’s public television station, held a beach party benefit at Foxfield Race Track, which is why the event was dubbed “Surf on the Turf.” The Embers Band (not as old as TJ – only been around since 1958) rocked the grass with its ageless gets-you-movin’ beach music.

If you missed the event, there’s good news — you can still support WVPT, with its excellent PBS broadcasts such as the “Downton Abbey” series, and you can experience an Embers performance at a number of places in the South.  The Embers perform over 200 times a year.  Bring your dancin’ shoes!
