As a touring artist, Asher has shared the stage with Shawn Mullins, Glen Phillips(o/ Toad the Wet Sprocket), Emerson Hart, Angie Aparo, Corey Smith, Sister Hazel, Collective Soul, 3 Doors Down, Steve Cropper and many more.

Born in the small town Bowdon, GA, Gareth Asher was raised on a steady diet of old school funk, rock and soul. Asher attributes many of his musical sensibilities to monumental artists like Stevie Wonder, Phil Collins, and groups like Chicago. As a writer, he respects the work of iconic performing songwriters like Jackson Browne, Otis Redding, and Don Henley and The Eagles.

“I feel like my shell is finally cracking, and the best songs are starting to emerge. All my inner most thoughts and emotions are breaking through to the surface, and insisting on a ray of light to shine down upon them”, says Asher.

“Gareth has a wonderful way of singing to your soul”, says Captain Jen, “add that while sailing on the Chesapeake and you have the perfect moments that will turn into favorite memories. Don’t miss this show!”

Check out a video of Gareth performing aboard Schooner Woodwind.

Captain Jen fell in love with this winery’s location, wine and people that work at Old Westminster Winery at their grand opening in 2013. The proprietors, the Baker family, are raising a reputation for crafting wines of intrigue. The property is situated on a rocky plot of ground just south of historic Westminster, MD, where patrons enjoy the ambiance of the vineyard and a hands-on winery producing exceptional wines.

The Baker family believes this winery represents the American Dream: strong family, faith, sustainability and entrepreneurial spirit. Through teamwork and shared commitment, they strive to create wines that reflect the terroir and balanced farming practices. Old Westminster Winery is a place to enjoy hand-crafted wines produced in an environmentally conscious way, build relationships and genuinely connect with the land.

Schooner Woodwind’s Dinner Cruises are a very casual affair. Courses are served picnic-style and food is presented chilled or at room temperature. You will thoroughly enjoy the event aboard. We really do sail, so wear soft soled shoes. And please, feel free to raise the sails, steer the boat, or sit back and relax.
