Author: Visit Poconos/Monday, July 17, 2017/Categories: Poconos Events

Event date: 11/30/2017 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM Export event

Country music superstar Jennifer Nettles will bring her “Christmas with Jennifer Nettles” tour to the F.M. Kirby Center on Thursday, November 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets go on sale Friday, July 21 at 10:00 a.m. and can be purchased at the Kirby Center Box Office, by phone at (570) 826-1100 and online at www.kirbycenter.org.  

A Kirby Member Pre-Sale will begin Wednesday, June 19 at 10:00 a.m.

Superstar entertainer Jennifer Nettles is one of today’s most admired and animated performers.  ASCAP has honored her songwriting prowess with five awards, including the emotionally charged, #1 PLATINUM hit “Stay” that also earned Jennifer GRAMMY®, ACM and CMA Awards.  As the first female artist to be the solo songwriter on an ACM Song of the Year winner since 1972, Nettles was also acknowledged with the Crystal Milestone Award.

Leading with her powerhouse vocals and vivacious energy, Nettles hit high notes throughout 2016, releasing two Big Machine Records’ albums – PLAYING WITH FIRE and TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS – in addition to back-to-back headline tours and holiday-themed dates.

She recently released the music video for her catchy latest single, “Hey Heartbreak” which is an anchor on her critically-acclaimed sophomore solo album, PLAYING WITH FIRE.

In 2015, Nettles made her Broadway debut as Roxy Hart in the Tony Award-winning, record-breaking musical Chicago.  In December, she reprised her role as Dolly Parton’s mom, Avie Lee Parton, in the holiday-themed sequel to the ratings success Coat of Many Colors, Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love.

Nettles also played a vital role on the inaugural season of American Supergroup, serving as a celebrity judge alongside Elle King, Aloe Blacc and Jason Scheff.  She was also added to the lineup for the annual C2C Festival in London, Glasgow and Dublin March 10-12 and headlined the 2017 Women’s Final Four concert in Dallas, TX on Saturday, April 1.

Before starting her solo career, Nettles served as lead singer of the popular country duo, Sugarland.

Tickets Prices: $39.50, $49.50, $59.50 and $99.00 (limited Gold Circle seating), plus fees

Color May World Wine Dinner at Skytop Lodge

As the master sommelier Jim Beau Borick approaches the sensory board, which is essentially one long row of aromatherapy—lemon slices, pieces of oak, fresh lavender—stashed in banquet glasses atop a wooden buffet, a crowd forms in front of him. He begins with the white, a Chardonnay by Valley of the Moon, the featured winemaker of the night. This is the second monthly wine dinner of the 2016 season at Skytop Lodge and Borick’s pitch is as light as the tan suit he wears. Every so often he weaves in a heavier note, one that swirls into his proclaimed lifelong fascination with the fermented grape: “We gravitate toward wine because of its mystery…yet the beauty of wine… is found in its complexity.”
