Hopefully Forgiven, the local guitar duo comprised of Telly Karoussos and Brad Penuel, will play at the Wölffer Estate Vineyard this weekend as the winery continues its Candlelight Fridays series.
After gaining recognition as a solo artist, East Hampton’s Mr. Karoussos teamed up with Mr. Penuel (also known as Alabama Brad) to form Hopefully Forgiven. Their influences include Gram Parsons, the Rolling Stones in their early days and country duos like the Stanley Brothers. They play a mix of original songs and beloved covers.
The Candlelight Friday series presents live music in an intimate café setting, with no cover charge and wine, cheese and charcuterie plates available for purchase. Upcoming acts include Ludmilla on March 14, Charles Certain on March 21 and Alfredo Merat on March 28.
Hopefully Forgiven is playing on Friday, March 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the main winery, 139 Sagg Road in Sagaponack. For more information, call 537-5106 or visit wolffer.com.
