Come in from the cold and enjoy a relaxing evening of music at the popular FCC Bluegrass Coffeehouse on Saturday, February 8th at the First Congregational Church, 103 Main Street, Ridgefield. Headlining the evening will be The Tennessee Mountain Fox Chasers and Hitch & the Giddyup. Admission is $10 per person and $5 for performing musicians. Free admission for children. Hot dog, cookies, snacks and drinks will be available for sale.
The Fox Chasers are a Hot, Driving Bluegrass, Country and Western Swing band from Brooklyn, NY. The band features Caesar Moreno on Mandolin, Max Rainwater on Fiddle and Yates Webb on Guitar. They draw influences from Bob Wills, East Texas Serenaders, Kenny Baker, and Patsy Cline. Their new album “Life in the C-Suite” is coming this Spring 2020!
Moving nimbly from traditional folk to progressive bluegrass, Hitch & the Giddyup trade in the musical wares of soulful singing, hot picking, and deft songcraft. The group got their start in 2014 hosting a bluegrass night at their local bar, where they still hold court once a month. Spitfire banjo, punchy mandolin, and nimble guitar work combine with rich vocal harmonies to create a unique yet familiar sound. Hitch & the Giddyup is David Kaye - Mandolin, Dan Carlucci - Guitar Peter Kaufman - Banjo, Bob Csugie - Bass, Kenny Owens - Drums.
At 9 pm, all musicians in the house (please remember to bring your instruments) will be welcomed onto the stage, along with the evening's performers, into an open jam session, to be led by Austin Scelzo.
The FCC Bluegrass Coffeehouse brings to the community affordable and high caliber bluegrass music each month. These events offers musicians of all ages and abilities the opportunity to appreciate this traditional style of music by playing with and interacting with other bluegrass musicians.
