Ivy Terrace continues at Carnegie Hall. The Ivy Terrace series is a summertime favorite in the Greenbrier Valley. Fun for all ages, families and friends enjoy free live music on the lawn of Carnegie Hall the second and fourth Thursday of the month through August.
Performing on June 23 will be Marshall Petty & The Groove. As a preacher’s son, Petty grew up with gospel music. But even as a young boy, his heart belonged to rhythm and blues. He started out on guitar, then found an old saxophone. It was love at first notes. Something about those sounds, almost like a human voice, hooked him hard.
In high school at Cedar Grove, in the Army in Germany, in Minnesota, in Ohio, in college at West Virginia State, wherever he went, he played in a band. For years, he toured with jazz-blues organist Winston Walls. At 67, he still exudes a joyful and infectious passion for music. Blues blood still races through his veins as smooth and strong as those high notes on his saxophone solos.
The lineup for the remainder of the season includes performances by Black Twig Picker, Qiet, Squirrel Hillbillies and BlacKingCoal. For more information about upcoming concerts and performing artists, please visit www.carnegiehallwv.org.
Join those who have made Ivy Terrace Carnegie’s most beloved series of the year. Bring a picnic, a blanket or lawn chair, and sit back and relax to the sounds of music performed by a variety of local and regional artists. All performances begin at 6:30 p.m., rain or shine. In the event of rain, the concerts will be moved inside the Hamilton Auditorium.
