The Cains


The Cains trio to perform LIVE at the Picnic & Barrel Auction 

Rising country music trio The Cains will perform at the upcoming Picnic & Barrel Auction. Their newest single “Knock Knock” premiered on CMT in February of 2016, where they were among a select group of emerging artists featured in an Artist Discovery campaign. The two sisters, Madison and Taylor, and brother Logan, are natives of Hartselle, Alabama, and we are thrilled to have them join us for Picnic. Secure your tickets today so you don’t miss this exclusive performance!

WINE COUNTRY CASUAL.
Sun dress or summer pants for gals. Cargo shorts and button up for guys. Comfort is key as you will be walking the expansive grounds and lawn of Chateau Ste. Michelle. There will be plenty of shade, but if you look great in a big hat, this is the perfect venue. And of course always be prepared for the weather – after all, it is Seattle!
