Another odd numbered year – 2017 – means it is time to announce our biennial “Jazz in the Meadow”. The Bartlett Family and Benny Benedum will again celebrate love, friendship, and jazz in the Bartlett meadow in Somerset county on July 8, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.
The tent has been reserved, the musicians arranged for, and now all we need to make it a perfect day is your appearance there with us.
The music will start promptly at 1:00 p.m. with Frank Cunimondo and his Trio. Following Frank, will be a student jazz group under the direction of Dr. James Moore of West Virginia Weslyn College. The afternoon/evening ends with a grand finale – The Erin Burkett – Virgil Walters Combo accompanied by Max Leake on keyboard and Mike Tomaro on saxophone.
There will be food and drinks (wine, beer, soda, and water) for all. However, you are welcome 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.
We expect this afternoon/early evening to be a high point of music and conviviality. The Bartletts and Benny would be proud and honored to have you join us.
Brooks, Helen, and Benny
