Nestled in 25 acres of lush grape vines Elk Run welcomes some of the best known jazz performers from around the region. Presentations include sensuous velvety piano to soulful blues on sax to old school, jazz, funk and improvisation.
Nothing is as calming as tastings samples and glasses of crisp dry white wines delicate slightly sweet nectars and bold red wines, while enjoying the sounds of smooth jazz and aromas of fresh grilled American Fries by Aw Boy Fries and BrickNFire Pizza. Local artisans show their wares and crafts, even some hula hooping while informative hayrides tour the vineyard showing the vista of Frederick.
Saturday’s performers include the Howard Burns Trio including sax, electric bass and drums. The Eric Byrd Trio with jazz piano, drums and acoustic bass was a big hit at last year’s festival. We welcome newcomers to this festival, Slick Hampton Band performing in their funky eclectic style will finish the festivities for Saturday.
Not to be out done Sunday returns with the Josh Bayer Trio with guitar, keyboards and drums, followed by the progressive jazz offerings of Time Squared. Be ready to get funky with Ronny Smith and Friends performing smooth Jazz to round out the day.
