One of this year’s Spoleto hot tickets is jazz singer Dianne Reeves, who won the award for Best Jazz Vocal Album for her record Beautiful Life at last night’s Grammy Awards.

This makes Reeves’ fifth Grammy award, and will make tickets to her May 30 Spoleto performance at the Cistern Yard go even quicker — so get thee to the Spoleto website, if you want to make sure to catch the show.

On that note, we hear from Jennifer Scott, Spoleto’s PR director, that since the lack of the Gaillard has created a reduced ticket capacity, many shows are reaching their limit more quickly than usual. Locals Weekend isn’t until April 11-12 — that’s when Charleston locals can save up to 50 percent on tickets — but Scott isn’t recommending that anyone wait that long to buy if there’s something you really want to see.
