CNY Jazz presents Jazz at the Sherwood

Fabled Skaneateles inn hosts new outdoor dining concert series

Skaneateles NY – The village of Skaneateles will soon get its first jazz cabaret. The historic Sherwood Inn, established in 1807, will ring with the sounds of America’s music this summer with the launch of “Jazz at the Sherwood”, a Wednesday dining series on select dates in July, August, and September. The concerts will take place on the Hannum House lawn next to the inn. The series is the newest regional music offering of CNY Jazz, following the success of Jazz at Timber Banks, Jazz at the Cavalier, Jazz at SITRUS, and many others.

The outdoor cabaret setting features a $50 four-course price fixe menu served under covered umbrella table seating in full view of the entertainment on the porch of the Hannum House. The region’s best vocalists and instrumentalists will perform from 6 to 8:30 p.m. during peak dining hours.

Said Larry Luttinger of the partnership, “We were honored that the Sherwood reached out to us to co-design this series, especially after the sad departure of our long-running ‘Jazz on Tap’ series in the village at the former Finger Lakes on Tap. A town like Skaneateles deserves a quality dining-and-entertainment option, and we’re glad to be able to help provide it. Many thanks to the inn’s ownership and staff for their collaboration and commitment to quality.”

The lineup represents a cross-section of the most well-known vocal-heavy jazz trios and quartets in the area, with a twist or two thrown in. “There’s great variety here,” according to Luttinger. “Jazz standards, pop tunes, Latin influences, Broadway belting, smooth crooning, and a twist provided by QUATRO, the finest progressive Americana group ever to locate in Central New York.”

Call the Sherwood at 315-685-3405 for reservations, which are strongly suggested. As a benefit to their annual donors, holders of CNY Jazz Club Discount Cards will receive 10% off food and drink at these events.
