Long Island Winterfest: Good Music… Good Wine… Good Weather?

Randy-Napoleon_Laurel-LAkeBecause you can’t hole up inside forever… here’s hoping the weather cooperates as the 8th annual Winterfest gets ready for its second weekend on the North Fork of New York’s Long Island.

With a music component known as “Live on the Vine,” the Winterfest features impressive numbers, as detailed on the event’s website:

  • 6 weeks of exciting events.
  • 13 world-class wineries.
  • 19 magnificent venues.
  • 128 electrifying performances.

Jazz was the focus of early festivals, but the music mix has expanded over the years to include rock, world, folk, blues and other genres.

Smithereens, 10,000 Maniacs, Stanley Jordan, Roomful of Blues and Amy Helm are among the more familiar names set for this year’s Winterfest. You can view the full performance schedule here: http://www.liwinterfest.com.php53-18.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/all-upcoming-events/

Good music. Good wine. Good food (at several of the venues). Now, if only Mother Nature would cooperate with some good weather!
