LEWISBURG, W.Va. (WVDN) – Carnegie Hall will begin its 2023 Ivy Terrace Concert Series on Thursday, June 8, at 6:30 p.m. with Blue Twisted Steel.
Ivy Terrace concerts take place outside on Carnegie Hall’s Ivy Terrace where attendees watch from the expansive lawn in front of New River Community and Technical College. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and pack a picnic to enjoy live music. All Ivy Terrace concerts are free, open to the public and alcohol free.
Blue Twisted Steel, formerly known as Marguerite, is a husband-and-wife lead band based out of Charleston. Members include Josiah and Abigail Spangler and Evan Olds. The band’s recent reformation began in the summer of 2021 after a four-year hiatus from performing. During these four years, the band wrote the songs for their new EP “Intro,” as well as several others, and finally began tracking in July of 2021.
The new EP “Intro” was released in 2022 and includes original post-Americana songs with genre-blending arrangements and undertones of psychedelia.
For the first Ivy Terrace concert, Greenbrier Dairy’s Cow Licks Dessert Trailer will be on location. Cow Licks ice cream is mixed by hand in freezing pans together with a wide variety of toppings. Then it’s rolled up and served in your choice of a fresh-made waffle cone taco shell or bowl.
The remaining Ivy Terrace schedule is as follows:
June 22: Thomas Taylor Band
July 13: Ma’am (female folk, rock, country and jazz duo)
July 27: West Virginia Jazz Orchestra
August 10: John Ellison and The Carpenter Ants
