Those who have followed Ruthie Foster's eclectic musical history know
that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul,
blues, rock, folk and gospel. And when Grammy Award-winning
producer John Chelew suggested she record an album in New Orleans
- with support handpicked from the Crescent City's overflowing pool of
talent - it was an opportunity for Ruthie to infuse fresh spices into her already rich sonic gumbo. The result is Let It Burn - slated for
January 31, 2012 release on Blue Corn Music - a recording that smolders, sizzles and ignites with an intensity born from her vibrant
voice and indelible presence.
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.
