Spoleto Festvial Finale @ Middleton Place
Gates and Beer Garden open at 3:30pm
Live music starts at 4:00pm
St. Paul & The Broken Bones performs at 8:30pm
Live music, gourmet picnic fare, and local craft beers under Charleston’s sweeping oaks—what a fantastic way to cap off 17 days of unforgettable Festival performances. This annual event at Middleton Place includes a beer garden with your favorite Charleston brews and the best local and regional bands playing on the main stage throughout the afternoon. St. Paul & The Broken Bones take the stage at dusk.
Evoking tremendous soul singers like Otis Redding and working as hard as James Brown, singer Paul Janeway fronts the Alabama-based St. Paul & The Broken Bones, known for their fiery passion and lack of restraint. Janeway comes by his gospel roots honestly, having been groomed for life as a preacher since he was a child. On stage, he translates the theater of the pulpit into his voice’s growl, a sound known to suck all the air out of any room. This seven-piece soul band electrifies audiences across the globe with their reverence for a sultry, gritty tradition.
No Finale would be complete without a spectacular display of post-concert fireworks to bring the Festival to its celebratory close. Arrive early to explore Middleton Place’s stunning landscaped gardens and enjoy refreshments. A performance schedule for live music prior to St. Paul & The Broken Bones is below:
4:15pm – 5pm | Johnny Delaware
