Long Island Jazz on the Vine

It is time for Long Island Winterfest and for the third year in a row, the theme will be Jazz on the Vine.  For six consecutive weekends from February 13th to March 21st over 70 free jazz concerts will be offered at winery tasting rooms on the East End of Long Island.  This is sure to be a cure for mid-winter doldrums!

A major highlight of this year’s Winterfest will be the Steinway Series.  Steinway & Sons is moving at least seven of its grand pianos into select vineyards for special performances, including two Jazz on the Vine kick-off concerts.  On February 6th JaLaLa, reminiscent of a contemporary version of the Andrews Sisters, will perform at Raphael Vineyard.  Lauren Kinham of LaLaLa also will sing with New York Voices.  The second concert is planned for February 12th at Wolffer Estate Vineyards.  Judy Carmichael and her band will transport listeners back to the golden age of Jazz.  Another great way to kick-off Jazz on the Vine!

A complete calendar of events for Jazz on the Vine will keep your weekends busy through March 21st.  We encourage you to make your room reservations in advance for your visit to the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast.

I have jazz on my mind and can not wait for the series to begin!
