Music at the Ridge

by Nancy Hershatter
Beginning on October 2, one Sunday per month at 4:00 p.m. our Fellowship Hall will ring with the sounds of a brand new live music series which we are calling Music at the Ridge. These live acoustic music shows will feel like a cross between a house concert and a Saturday night coffeehouse.

October 2 our performers will be Mustard’s Retreat, a folk duo from Ann Arbor, Michigan.

November 6, Pat Wictor will be performing. Pat is a singer-songwriter who grew up in Venezuela, the Netherlands, Norway and England but currently makes his home in Brooklyn. We are hoping to livestream these shows; more on that later.

If you would like to be on the team that makes these intimate concerts a success, email Nancy Hershatter. We especially need folks who are willing to:

a) help with tech setup

b) take tickets at the door

c) bake and serve refreshments at intermission

d) be on the publicity team that gets the word out to the larger community and

e) hospitality–making sure our performer(s) have what they need.

Our objectives are to build bridges in the community through music, while providing a sustainable venue in western Connecticut for live music to be shared and enjoyed.

Revenue will be shared between performers and UUCD
