After this past week, we could all use some great LIVE music! This Sunday, August 16 at 2:00 PM, Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center (KTM&HC) and Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra (RSO) continue their summer series of diverse musical performances outdoors on the grounds of the KTM&HC campus (152 Main Street, Ridgefield).
This week The Angry O’Haras, with their own super-fun and unique fiddle, guitar, banjo and brass instrumental foundation for three and four-part harmonies, will perform from 2:00-4:00 PM on the patio beside the History Center building. Bluegrass is their guiding compass, but the band navigates many musical regions highlighting the backgrounds of the band members: Chris Anderson – lead guitar, mandolin, vocals;
Mike Crescenzo – bass, vocals; Gerry O'Hara – banjo, guitar, vocals; and Austin Scelzo – fiddle, vocals.
“We love presenting diverse music each week in this series. We have featured jazz, rock and popular music, and this week are excited to offer the opportunity to hear a wonderful, fun band play bluegrass and more!” says RSO Executive Director Laurie Kenagy. “We also want to let everyone know that Eric Christensen and The Cara Quartet that were canceled the past two Sundays due to rain and storm clean-up have been rescheduled for September 6 and 13.”
Bring your lawn chair or blanket, or stop by while strolling on Main Street. Join us for the FREE performance and enjoy live music and the summer in Ridgefield!
