The Fairfield Theater Company (FTC) has announced that they have four exciting days lined up this weekend with nine different events, starting today.
Today, Thursday, Dec. 1, Tim Reynolds of the Dave Mathews Band will perform a sold-out solo show at StageONE. According to press release this will be Reynold’s eighth StageOne performance, which fans can expect will bring “transcendent electric guitar and intricate acoustic picking.”
Also tonight, across the lot, you can catch Rebirth Brass Band at The Warehouse, as part of the “SpreadMusicNow” Concert Series. As said by the New York Times, “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.” Rebirth tickets are still available for tonight’s show.
Tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 2 Band Together will bring together a benefit concert featuring Lucy Kaplansky, Fuzz and Carrie from Caravan of Thieves, and John Torres of Oh, Cassius to StageOne. This is a benefit concert to support the Band Together Fund in partnership with WPKN and SpreadMusicNow.
Across the lot at The Warehouse on Friday, dobro phenomenon, Jerry Douglas will be playing an intimate show, doors will be at 7:00 p.m. Douglas is a 14 time Grammy Award Winner, a man of great musical talent, who leads his audience through the frontiers of bluegrass, country, blues and folk. He is a dobro playing legend, and this is an absolute must-see concert for anyone in the area.
Saturday, Dec. 3 will kick off the Holiday season with A Broadway Holiday Show on StageOne, doors at 6:30 p.m. They will perform a NYC-esque customized Holiday performance featuring dancers, singers and instrumentalists. At The Warehouse, The Alternate Routes, will make their annual return to perform. Their show is a chance to enjoy anthem rock & roll songs, as well as, folky Americana tunes.
Sunday, Dec. 4 yet another annual event at FTC, the Pop Shop, will transform The Warehouse into a local vendor stop, attracting sellers of jewelry, gifts, clothing, just in time for the holidays! Food trucks and The Warehouse Bar, with holiday drink specials, will be offering refreshments for you while you shop.
Finally, Sunday evening ‘Puddles Pity Party,” a seven-foot clown will be bringing laughs to The Warehouse starting at 7:00 p.m. As said by the Boston Globe, “It seems like a parody. But when Puddles opens his mouth to sing, it’s beautiful. Operatic.” So bring your whole family to shop and stay for the show!
