James Taylor, now a Lenox, Massachusetts resident, performs at Tanglewood every year. He always prepares a special show for his hometown crowd, and more often than not, proceeds of his performances remain at Tanglewood to benefit the Boston Symphony.
This year is different only in that he has put together four consecutive days of performances…each with a different twist. He plans to perform with Sheryl Crow, Yo Yo Ma, John Williams and the Boston Pops, and other notables.
Tickets went on sale this morning for the “Shed” and although the 6,000 seats available will sell out rather quickly, 12,000 “lawn tickets” per show are also on sale and they will take a while longer to run out….although they always do for James Taylor shows.
Hampton Terrace is a historic Lenox inn which has been hosting guests since 1937. It was originally built as a summer “cottage,” if you can call a 6,000 square foot main house with 10 bedrooms, and a 3,000 square foot carriage house a “cottage.”
We have owned Hampton Terrace for ten years, and have always enjoyed hosting the James Taylor crowd each summer. I do not think he has ever played four consecutive nights here, so we’ll enjoy them all the more. Although we have a 3-night minimum typically on Tanglewood weekends, the bookings we have taken so far have left us some one and two night gaps during his 4-day run….so please call us for information on this. Trying to book single or double nights on the website will not be possible due to the 3-night minimum it will try to impose…but we can override those restrictions here at the inn, if we have availability.
