As we eagerly count down the days until Spoleto Festival USA’s 42nd season, we reach another Charleston staple event: the Cooper River Bridge Run. Whether you’re slipping on your sneakers for this Saturday’s 10K, or just out for a fun run in your neighborhood, here’s the perfect playlist to get your feet moving.
Charge toward the finish line while listening to the nimble scatting of 2018 Grammy Award nominee Jazzmeia Horn. It might be hard to resist the urge to snap your fingers, tap your feet, and nod your head, but if you save that for the finish line, you can celebrate by purchasing tickets to Jazzmeia Horn, May 28 at the Charleston Gaillard Center. CLICK HERE for information and tickets.
Set a winning pace to the swift tempo of legendary Ricky Skaggs. Recently announced as one of Country Music Hall of Fame’s newest inductees, Skaggs will have you wishing your feet moved as fast as his fingers on the mandolin. Don’t miss a pickin’ good time with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder at the College of Charleston Cistern Yard, May 31 and June 1. CLICK HERE for information and tickets.
Keep your energy up and your blood flowing with the passionate vocals of The Lone Bellow! While you can’t actually see “The Joe” from your run on the Ravenel Bridge, you know Charleston’s beloved stadium is incredibly close by, with convenient parking and famously indulgent concessions. You’ll definitely want to hear The Lone Bellow’s “magnetic” sound that’s “built to shake the rafters” (NPR) on June 10 at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park. CLICK HERE for information and tickets.
Finally, what better way to take in the stunning views of the Cooper River and the Charleston skyline than by listening to local favorite, Ranky Tanky? Plus, did you know “Ranky Tanky” is a Gullah phrase for “work it” or “get down?” Catch them at the College of Charleston Cistern Yard on June 2! CLICK HERE for information and tickets. (P.S. This is a hot ticket with limited availability, so act fast!)
Please note our Call Center will be closed this Saturday, April 7, but as always, you can purchase tickets online at spoletousa.org.
