The Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa is bringing in a slew of big-name performers for its winter season. Rather than just one performer at a time, the Grove Park Inn is pulling out all the stops for three full weekends of jazz, big band and Celtic music.
“Big Band and Swing Dance” weekend, Jan. 20-22, will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Service Organization (USO). The performance will feature NC Revelers Orchestra and the USO Liberty Bells. The Glenn Miller Orchestra will be there too, but tickets are sold out. Now’s the time to sign up for the rest of the weekend.
“All that Jazz” weekend, Jan. 27-29, will feature several top-notch performers, including The John Pizzarelli Quartet, Jessica Molaskey & Aaron Weinstein Trio and the Lenore Raphael Duo featuring Herman Burney. The New Yorker called Pizzarelli, his father Bucky and his wife Jessica Molaskey “the von Trapps on martinis” and publications from the LA Times to the San Francisco Chronicle continue to sing his praises.
“Celtic Adventure” weekend, Feb. 3-5, will feature Gaelic Storm (of Titanic fame), McPeake and Colin Grant-Adams. The concerts will celebrate the Scotish-Irish heritage of Western North Carolina with concerts at the Grove Park Inn’s grand ballroom.
