The Tumbling Bones are purveyors of traditional American music who value, above all, grit. The twenty-somethings who make up the trio - Peter Winne, Jake Hoffman, and Sam McDougle - have been callousing their hands and pushing their vocal chords for years as they've toured, recorded, and breathed folk music. Their raw, though lucid, take on old American music has taken them across the world. The Tumbling Bones used to play in stringband-turned-indie rock outfit The Powder Kegs, and their time with that band took them from street-performing in Copenhagen and Berlin to venues along the east coast to an acclaimed 2007 performance on NPR's "A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor" (they played on the show's "People in Their Twenties Talent Competition" and won first prize).
CHIRP is a series of free Tuesday and Thursday night summer concerts in Ballard Park located in the heart of Ridgefield. It is totally funded by individual and foundation donations as well as contributions from local businesses. It is co-sponsored by the town of Ridgefield through its Parks & Rec. Dep't. and The Ridgefield Press. Concerts begin at 7p.m.
CHIRP's mission is to present to its audience music and professional musicians who would not normally otherwise have a venue in the Ridgefield/Danbury area. It's main goal is to build community through shared experience.
