On Friday, King, Landon, Harmon and Bryce Carlisle will perform at Fiddler’s Restaurant and Resort starting at 7 p.m. with King debuting a new song.

“Lots of good things are going on on the music side,” said Andy Latimer, owner of Steinhatchee’s Fiddler’s Restaurant and Resort.

General admission tickets are $50 and VIP tickets are $100 for the Friday performance.

Organizers will donate a part of the proceeds from the event to the Refuge House and Another Way, Inc. An onsite silent auction will also help support two domestic violence relief organizations.

“They help people transition into a safer place, so it’s for a good cause,” Latimer said.

Saturday events will run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Steinhatchee Landing Resort.

“There will be a lot of good wine to sample, a lot of good craft beers to sample, and we’ve got some killer food going on,” Latimer said. “We’ve got stone crab balls, we’ve got she crab soup, oysters, and we’ve got a margarita station for those who don’t like wine or beer. It’s a good time.”

More than two dozen vendors will also be on hand Saturday selling arts and crafts.
