The Ridgefield Library will renew the Ridgefield Folk series at 2:00 on Sunday, September 26, with ‘Ol Moose and Friends.
After spending the last several years in Texas playing solo gigs and with the Merry J. Pranksters trio, Ol’ Moose, aka Doug Anderson, has made his way north to Connecticut where he is getting back to his New England roots. He is currently playing in an acoustic trio, Ol' Moose and Friends, with Alysia Love on violin and music veteran Dan Bonis on mando, lap steel, and dobro.
Behind the name: the musicians Ol' Moose used to play with in the early days had a flatbed truck and they would haul out an upright piano, strap it to the wall of the flatbed up by the cab, and drive around playing music. Because Moose was working at a sawmill at the time and could lift stuff pretty well, he would get one end of the piano by himself so they started calling him Moose. As he got older, it became Ol’ Moose.
The next performance in the Ridgefield Folk Series, on October 24 at 2:00, will feature Open Book, a mesmerizing duo performing Contemporary, Singer-Songwriter, and Folk/Traditional music, weaving male/female vocal harmonies with lush, textural instrumentation.
