In honor of Valentine’s Day, a few of our Barns artists  dished about sweet subjects—from chocolatey treats to celebrity crushes. Check out their answers, and be sure to catch Kevin Griffin of Better Than Ezra (above top left); Alexis Jones (top right) and The Jones Family Singers, and The Quebe Sisters (bottom) when they stop by The Barns at Wolf Trap.

1

Kevin Griffin: Someone named a star for me once on Valentine’s Day. At the time, it was quite a novel thing. Only NASA offered the service. Now there are online services that do it. Not as unique as it once was, but still pretty cool.

Alexis Jones, lead singer of The Jones Family Singers: My fiancé wrote and performed an original piece of music for me.

The Quebe Sisters: Well, not all of us Sisters have valentines per se, but I think we all agree that quality time always makes for a great Valentine’s Day regardless of what the activity is.
