Jazz in the Meadow 2015 – Update

The time is fast approaching for the biennial Bartlett-Benedum “Jazz in the Meadow”.  We have arranged for, perhaps, the greatest jazz presentations we have had since its beginning in 2005!

Ever mindful of the weather, the large tent and several “pop up” tents have been ordered.  There will be food and drinks (wine, beer, soda, and water) for all.  However, if your palate is delicate, feel free to bring your favorite food/beverage.

For those traveling a distance, we suggest spending a night or two in the Laurel Highlands.  The Trenthouse Inn/Bed and Breakfast and Seven Springs are close by.  Early reservations are recommended as mid summer is a busy time in the mountains. Click here for additional lodging.

Reiterating from the “save the date” e-mail, the afternoon of music and friendship starts at 1 p.m. with a short welcome, followed by the Frank Cunimondo Trio with Patty Skala on vocals.  After Frank’s group, the Meyersdale High School Jazz Band – a new addition to our program – will perform.  For a grand finale, we have the inimitable Dane Vannatter and his quartet.  The quartet consists of Pittsburgh jazz luminaries – Mike Tomaro, Max Leake, Tony DePaolis, and Tom Wendt.

So, just “kick back” and let the good vibes of the music and friendship/love envelope you.  The Bartlett family and Benny Benedum would be proud and honored to have you join us.

Brooks, Helen and Benny
