Not every young Canadian singer-songwriter gets to launch her CD with a live appearance on the US satellite station Sirius XM. The show was hosted byDave Marsh, author of more than 25 books on rock and roll and known as the "dean of American rock writers" who admits to being her biggest fan.
But that's how Ariana Gillis , from St. Catharines, Ontario - who turned 21 earlier this month - began to premiere her second album, Forget Me Not. Earlier, Marsh had played a track - "John and the Monster" - from an advance copy of the CD; one response was a phone call from an enthusiastic listener who wanted to know more about the unusual song, and the singer. The mystery caller was Elton John's lyricist and songwriting partner Bernie Taupin.
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.
