On November 6th, with the first shimmering notes of jazz guitar sounding along the shore, Earl Klugh’s celebrated Weekend of Jazz returns to Kiawah Island. The five-star Sanctuary Hotel will play host to the Grammy award-winning guitarist and a shimmering roster of music’s brightest stars for the 3-day event.
The 5th Annual Weekend of Jazz will play out November 6-8 and draw an international fan base to the signature styles of Klugh and his exquisitely talented co-stars. Nine-time Grammy winner Natalie Cole will lend unforgettable vocals to inspired numbers from world-class musicians. Grammy-nominated pianist and composer David Benoit, saxophonists Andy Snitzer and Michael Lington, acclaimed guitarist Chuck Loeb, and horn duo Rick Braun and Richard Elliot will indulge the crowd in genres ranging from cool jazz classics to slow-burn ballads. And David Letterman Show favorite, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, will amp up the energy with a horn-heavy set of modern jazz favorites.
Beginning with an introduction to the keyboard at 3 years of age, Earl Klugh has devoted his life to the pursuit of musical mastery. More than four decades as a professional guitarist and over 200 compositions to his credit have earned him placement in the ranks of the world’s most accomplished musicians. With the Weekend of Jazz event, he brings his trademark passion and unrivaled artistry to his fortunate fans on Kiawah—and for three days at the Sanctuary in November, the surfsong becomes an aria.
