Last week we shared the Oxford Artists’ Studio Tour with our readers, but there is more fun to be had during Labor Day weekend on the Eastern Shore at The Monty Alexander Jazz Festival! The Avalon Theatre in Easton hosts the festival each year, and it is always an amazing time for jazz enthusiasts. Just a short drive from the Inn, the Avalon Theatre is the perfect venue with its 1920’s origins.
The Monty Alexander Jazz Festival features performances September 2nd – 4th. Tickets can be purchased for the entire festival, or individual shows. Friday night, you can catch The Magic of Gershwin with Ted Rosenthal and Chuck Redd. Saturday is a day filled with beautiful music, starting with a free performance by the United States Army Jazz Ambassadors at 10am. Saturday continues with The Musical Universe of Dominick Farinacci and The Full Monty. Sunday afternoon be sure to check out The Spirit of Cyrus Chestnut. Cyrus will be performing alongside Afro Blue, Howard University’s jazz ensemble.
Our Labor Day weekend is definitely filling up with great events! Also on our Labor Day weekend to-do list: a quiet, cool morning to ourselves, enjoying a hot cup of coffee in our adirondack chairs overlooking the water at sunrise. Sounds like another great weekend at the Combsberry Inn!
