Three Concerts in Five Days, In Spite of Snowtober

We are ticketed to see Lucinda Williams tonight, November 1st and Jon Anderson & Rick Wakeman, tomorrow night, November 2nd at the Ridgefield Playhouse. Ridgefield, Connecticut got 17″ of snow on Saturday October 29th. Like much of Connecticut(790,000 customers at one point) they were out of power until last night. Here is the updated message about their status posted on the Ridgefield Playhouse Website.

As of Monday evening, power has been restored to the Ridgefield Playhouse!
All shows, beginning with Lucinda Williams on November 1st will go on as scheduled.
The box office will open Tuesday morning at 9AM.
We expect our website to be back up soon. Please click here for ticket information.

We never expected that three concerts in five days would have this swirl of excitement and anxiety surrounding the events. Heavy snow, power outages and rough traveling conditions (Saturday) have added to the nature of our live music commitment. This all began on Saturday October 29th with the Trucks Tedeschi Band, Scrapomatic concert at The Klein Memorial in Bridgeport, Ct. We drove through a hectic snow storm to witness a fantastic concert by TTB (see my post from October 30th to learn more).

Our dedication as patrons of the arts has been tested this week. So far we are coming through with flying colors, as are the artists, promoters, stage hands, ticket takers and all involved in presenting live music in our state.
